NEW 777-200ER Domestic Routing out of the MSP Hub.

 

 

We have relocated a (2) of our 777-200ER's from other Hubs and assigned them to the MSP to support new domestic routes that have been added to wACARS originating out of KMSP. The routing for the (2) new MSP based 777-200ER's are listed below:

 

1N7R01NW = VNW1193 - VNW1197

(KMSP-KJFK-KMIA-KLAX-JFK-KMSP)

 

1N7R02NW = VNW1198 - VNW1201

(KMSP-KSEA-KDFW-KPDX-KMSP)

 

 

We currently have (4) 777-200LR's (long range) already based out of MSP as well as (1) 777-300ER with routings for long international routes.  Some of these routes operated ever other day so they may not show up when you check the schedules from the homepage which only shows that days flights.  So be aware of that situation.  You can filter and query just the 777 routes out of MSP from the schedules search page using the drop down boxes for the selections. 

 

The ranges for our 777 Fleet are as follows:

 

777-200ER = 7725nm

 

777-200LR = 9380nm

 

777-300ER = 7930nm

 

All of the 777 flights out of KMSP are below the max range of the 777-200ER and therefore pilots can substitute all three versions for all of the routes out of MSP operating its 777 fleet.

 

 

Enjoy the New routes!
