Bravo Airlines (no joke) MD80 landing at Kiev Zhuliyani Airport this morning.
On Thursday June 14th, IR724 operated by A300-600 EP-IBD returned to AMS shortly after take-off, apparently due to flight control problems.

With regards to repairing this aircraft, LH has rebuilt a write-off before. In the mid/late 70s D-ABYU (freighter) went off the runway at HKG Kai Tak.

Slightly off topic, but why didn't KLM choose the MD-80 like SAS and Finnair did? When I look at most European airlines who have flown the DC-9, except maybe British Midland, they all added the MD-80 to their DC-9 fleet. I still find it surprising that they chose the 737-300 and 400 over the MD-80....Jump to post
They have flown there in the past, but pulled out for whatever reason. KLM has NEVER served KEF or REK on a regular scheduled basis. There are several reasons why KLM does not serve the KEF-AMS market: 1. The route is overserved with 4x daily flights, capacity is focussed on North American transfer...Jump to post

Between 1950 and 1990 EU-Japan routes looked like this; 1. Most flights operated EU-ANC-NRT as this was the shortest route through Western airspace. 2.

Interesting about AMS. Has the growth come from larger aircraft being sent since I remember there are no free slots left.

It was definitely a GARUDA operated flight, as GA had its Middle East stop-over for European services at AUH.
KLM only stopped at DXB (B747) or KHI (DC10) on its way to Indonesia.
In recent history KLM did operate to Surabaya for a short while, while KLM last operated to Medan pre-1948.
