Weird, as KLM-AF & Delta are so in to GOL. Isn't UX?Jump to post

Depends on what you call a class. Three class nb's with three types of seats are very rare. KLM has 3 classes in its nb's but they are all the same seat albeith with different pitch and/of middle seat free.

Diffrent use of routes maybe?
premium Y maybe works on certain routes only, which they don't use the 787.
This might also have to do with the fact that a very popular game/tv show (Wie is de Mol -> Who is the mole) played in colombia this year. 2-3 million people watch the show (out of 17million, so a lot, doesn't get much higher in dutch tv world) and the country it plays in always seems to have increa...Jump to post
Not bad, not good, fits United perfectly.
LAX also has KL flights, maybe the extra demand wasnt there. What does get really really busy at AMS is the railway plaza, as it is a very busy interchange station plus a large part of airport trafic arrives by train so it gets double busy. There are plans for new station exits in the new a terminal...Jump to post
Why is everyone making a big deal of this , it's a very clear swap by HiFly, yeah the A380 is special, but the reason is not weird.
They have to operate a A330-900 for Air Senegal, they can't, so they replace it with another plane from HiFly. Simple.

A 4-weekly tag on to the San Jose flight will expand KLM's presence in Costa Rica by continuing to LIR (Guanacaste Liberia, Costa Rica). Surprised that they can find the market, but maybe it's a easy way to add revenue to the San Jose flight. https://nieuws.klm.com/klm-voegt-guanacaste-liberia-costa...Jump to post
I applaud the idea of inclusivity. But is this not a step too far? The flying lady was an iconic brand symbol, it didn’t mean only straight white men flew Virgin.

At first i thought it was a bad april-fools but I really like the idea of this. The flying lady will be replaced by diverse men and woman while retaining the tradititonal look, good on Virgin Atlantic to do this. The article (in Dutch) also states that Virgin tries to remove the income-gap and the g...Jump to post
Going out on a whim here, but maybe it's because the gate you boarded from only had a single jet bridge? The question change a bit then: why in the US double jet bridge gates are not as common as in EU or Asia? Because you need a plane that can support loading from L1 and L2. Those are not the prev...Jump to post

I thought AS had started service to PAE? And aren't there two other airports close to NYC that LCCs use? I would think a second airport in ATL would be convenient. And another airport in south Florida. PAE is limited to something like 28 flights per day - at present they're all E175's, CRJ's (regio...Jump to post

To be fair, that's not correct.
The rule is - the needs of every airline in the World are perfectly met by a combination of the 787 and 777X.

In 1921 Qantas will become the first airline to fly continuously for 100 years under their original name. That IMHO will be the first centenary that really means something.

They would be a very major player , Imagine DXB/DOH/AUH but with a very large home/domestic market and you get a ballpark picture. But that is if they could have started this model 10-15 years a go. The market now is saturated, but with the domestic market they could become a nice player. Interestin...Jump to post
Isn't LCC-trafic at BUD more then 50% of the total flights at this moment? Would be a very weird move. Maybe that's the 'problem' for them, maybe they want to move them to a cheaper airport.

I think A321XLR will be a Widebody/Super Hub killer. Completely different approach Airbus had with the A380........

KLM also misses the 739ER in that regard. KLM misses more. They also never flew the 737-500 and 600. They never had the 737-200 in their own fleet, but had it on lease from Transavia. The original poster is talking about the NG-series, the list is not about the total 737-series.. He stated that the...Jump to post
oh god, we are going to get tons of threads like this. Just like the 757 ones. Short answer, very very unlikely, the tooling will be gone and a new line has to be build. After the last A380 is build Airbus is not going to leave the line empty and will use it for other types. - used the same carbon f...Jump to post
I’ve been on intra-Europe business class on KL and LH and it was thoroughly underwhelming from a food perspective as well as a seat perspective.

KLM operated all Douglas types, except the DC-1, but only one DC-1 was build and it was more a prototype for the DC-2 I would be very surprised if KLM didn't operate all civilian fokker planes. 737 NG (B736, B737, B738, B739, B739ER)(Leaving out the 737-700ER.

Are we talking narrow-bodies here? As far as I remember, Business Class at least here in Finland in narrow-bodies has been a separate section with the middle seat not occupied.

Somewhat related question - are there any intra European routes/markets which are particularly premium heavy?

I suspect I already know the answer to this question, but is there anything that Boeing could do to up the sales of the 748? I'm referring to engine upgrades and some serious PIPs.
