In the dash series the first digit is the manafacture series such as DC9-10. The second digit in the dash is the Airline designation. -15 just happens to be Northwest. Same as a -88 is Delta and a -83 is I beleive American. (yes the MD88 is really type certified as a DC9-88) I've never seen a -15 to have slats though unless some airline did some special work. To the best of my knowledge slats on the DC-9 didnt appear until the -30.
