Northwest Or United Domestic 747's

Sat Feb 07, 2009 8:25 pm

So out of the blue more or less I decided I wanted to fly a 747, but I don't really want to leave the country. United's timetable is too frustrating for me, and I haven't really tried Northwest's. Do either of them fly their 747's domestically somewhere in the May-June area?

Any help is appreciated  Smile

I think DL/NW is starting 747-400 service from Atl-Hnl this spring, not sure when off the top of my head. Other than that, NW really doesn't operate the 744 domestically anymore (I can remember back when they were just introducing it and it was common to see flights such as Msp-Phx or Msp-Dtw on the 744 for crew familiarization. I really wanted to get on one of those flights but the schedules and/or prices didn't work at the time.)
Yes, I'd like to see airbus go under so Boeing can have their customers!

NW doesn't but starting in June, NW will operate daily MSP-JFK A333 service.

That's probably his best bet but looks like it only operates from Mar 01 through Mar 18. Flight 149, leaves ORD 3:00pm. On the 19th it goes to a 763 for a couple weeks and then to a 777.
