NWA Seattle - Hong Kong Route

Wed Feb 24, 1999 9:27 am

There has been some word going around that Northwest Airlines will fly the Seattle - Hong Kong route again. NWA cancelled this route in 1996 because it wasn't making money but I heard that they might bring the route back, did anybody here about this?

Northwest Airlines flies to Tokyo and Osaka from Seattle with Boeing 747-200, 747-400 and DC-10 aircraft. Also Northwest Airlines is planning to start service to Kuala Lumper and Jakarta from Seattle direct from Osaka.

Northwest Airlines flies to Minneapolis, Detroit, Memphis, Boston, Anchorage, Tokyo, Osaka and Amsterdam from Seattle and flies Boeing 747-200, 747-400, DC-10, 757-200 and A320 aircraft to Seattle.

Also Northwest Airlines has a strong alliance with Seattle Based Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air.

This looks like a sign that the asian crisis is over and things are returning to normal.

NW replaced the SEA-HKG service with MSP-HKG in 1997. I had the pleasure of flying HKG-MSP in Oct '97. 13 hours 5 minutes of coach class comfort, with a plane-load of screaming Chinese orphans!! NW has since cancelled the service due to the "Asian Flu"
