Re: Best Equiment Swaps?

Back in 2006, I was due to fly LAX to MSP on board a Northwest Airlines B757 but they did an equipment swap and it ended up being a DC 10-30. The plane was almost empty, which made it even more fun.

In Oct the ICN flight is scheduled to be an A359. I've heard, but cannot confirm, that AMS may at some point get an A339
