Re: Northwest Airlines at Kai Tak

They did fly SEA-HKG on and off over the years. Also, during the days of the Seoul mini-hub (pre-ICN) they flew GMP-HKG.

How about Western and the 733? They took delivery in about mid-1985, then merged with DL in '87.

Republic 757s. First one delivered 12-85 shortly before the merger with NWA was announced.

Both flights were charters. In fact, I remember reading somewhere that the PA 747 was to deadhead to Paris, then operate a scheduled flight back to the U.S. Also, the PA flight was numbered 1736. Did this by chance correspond to the reg (N736PA)?
