NW to Accelarate DC-10 Retirements

Northwest Airlines will accelerate the retirement of the remaining 12 DC10-30 aircraft it flies. During the next seven months, it will replace those older aircraft with new Airbus A330s and Boeing 747-400 aircraft that are being returned to service. Currently, seven routes are served with the DC10.
