KLM have some Combi B747, I don't think many many more airlines have this in operation. I think EL AL have some special and unique features in many of the planes, mainly self protection. ATR made some modifications on the ATR42-500 for Precision Air, to operate them in unpaved airports, dirt runway...Jump to post
Flying Blue miles can't be earned on alaska flights starting 30-4-18, Not surprising after Alaska cut ties with Delta/Aeromexico. Alaska moving away from SkyTeam and more and more towards OneWorld.

Thanks again for a great report!
Travelling from Schiphol to a airport designed to be like Schiphol (lagos) made me giggle a little!
Wonder when we will see a Twitter-Rant from a certain person if this comes out..
Great for Delta though!
No ams, usually you see one or two routes adder there too.Jump to post
KLM starts flights to Växjö (VXO) in Sweden Starting daily from the S18 timetable. Daily with a E175. KLM's fourth swedish destination and 14th scandinavian destination. Amazing how KL seems to pick up on so many smaller EU destinations. https://news.klm.com/klm-starts-flights-to-vaxjo-vxo-in--sweden/Jump to post

Great, looks stunning! Thanks for the report!
Does it say Boeing MD-83 on the safety card ?
Why the Caps? It's not that special. Bet you can replace Boeing by Airbus and it would still be true, and the other way round.Jump to post
Wow the soft product looks good. The hard product is mediocre though.
Thanks for the report!
Are turn-arounds shorter in Europe? You can't turn a plane in 20min, which is common in EU-airports, but you can't do that with a jetbridge. Might also be a culture thing, not to judge or over generelize. But in the US walking is much less common, even for short trips the car is king. In Europe walk...Jump to post
Nice, tons of foto's!
FYI, the safety video is not a animation, they used actual Delft Blue tiles.
In fact, they are made across the street from where I live (20meters), at the Royal Delft Blue Pottery.
Aah brexit... so much fun.
and another domino topples
I don't think China alone is the problem, French and German divisions would love to consolidate the aircraft construction in one of their plants.
KLM won't be happy when Avianca starts poking around there.Jump to post
It's just boarding by travel-class combined with club-tier.
And duh!? you pay more for higher class tickets.
It's brought as a "you pay 50€" and get to board last, "you pay 200€" for the same ticket class and get to board earlier.
It's not that
They don't serve alcohol, if that's important to you, but you can drink your own onboard. If you can get a stopover in Brunei, it's well worth doing for a day or two.

The moment you go BoB on shorthaul you can't call yourselve premium. If they'd gone the SAS route, serving only tea/water/coffee I'd understand, but this is sad, plain sad.Jump to post

I do think with the introduction with the A321neo with TP and EI we will see more premium cabins in NB's.
The 757's of EI are another example of current premium cabins in NB's, they fly them from smaller irish airports.

If they could do 4 abreast biz that would be good. They are currently on 8 abreast!!!
With SA I think you mean Single Aisle? I think the term NB (narrow body) is more common. BA already has a fleet of seven? A321 with full flat business class and IFE in Y.

Is the Fly540 ATR72 one?
What route could a non-existent plane fly on a route which would likely be not-flown as you are burning money on a <800mile flight. In short, no flight is good. If, and that's a big if, a SST takes flight soon, it wont be used on domestic flights. To little time-saving To expensive in comparison to ...Jump to post

I think they stopped like in 2015 or something like that but with JS you never know.
Bristow Helicopters is from 1955, oldest i could find in the UK! Otherwise Aurigny if you want a fixed wing airline!Jump to post
It's a joke guys..common.. KLM knows the flaws and untruths in this video.
But it get's people talking about them, it's a clever marketing movie, so KLM is happy.
