Actually, DL 802/803 will be NW operated. That means all operations, including catering. DL just sells the seats. That's why I predict the 744 HNL/ATL service will be exactly like the A333 service...

If it's NW operated, then all the AVOD will probably operate as it does on the A333 HNL/MSP.

DL now operating NW 744s ATL/HNL

What a pleasant surprise. The 747-400s I fly on NW from HNL are now headed east as well. As of 17 Jan 2009, DL's tired 763s are replaced by NW 747-400s. The equipment is sort of "wet leased".......

I would settle for being able to u/g domestic DL segments on NW tix w/ WP miles, or v.v. If Skyteam can do it for intl, they can do it for domestic.
