Unless you have a higher level alt to send you a tome of cold weather flying, you'll almost certainly level faster saying in Outland for a few more levels, rather than heading to Northrend at level 68 and slowly plodding along on the ground when you could be flying from quest objective to quest objective in Outland.

I'm just leveling my fifth toon through Northrend and I have in fact tried this. However, in my experience it is faster to do all the quests in Northrend on mount than to do the Outland ones on flying mount.Why? Most quests, on both continents (dimensions, whatever), involve killing creatures, whicch, in Northrend, give you far more XP. Also, having a flying mount doesn't give you any benefit for killing mobs quickly. I just helps you get from Q giver to Q location a little faster. Also, the quests in Northrend are more packed into certain locations, so you're barely losing any time traveling between these, which compensated for the long distance traveling you often had to do in, say, Nagrand.
