I believe that, in the US, it's illegal to take photos of airline crews, but there shouldn't be much problem taking photos of aircraft. However, be discreet as there may be security personnel on board who might make it their business to raise a fuss about it and NWA cabin crew themselves can be a bolshie lot.

Just flew NW yesterday.. No problem taking photos of DC-9-50 or 757-200 cockpits (on ground of course)- the F/As and pilots were very accomodating and on the 757 the F/O wanted to take my photo in the "driver's seat"
I'll upload them next week- assuming they're as good as I planned them to be

Not sure about KLM, but NWA is very good about letting people take pics. As long as you're not bugging the captain durring flight, you'll almost for sure be allowed to take some cockpit pictures and here a good flight story or two
As far as window pictures, no one has ever come up to me and told me to stop, I've been able to get some decent takeoff and landing pics with NWA.
Seeing as KLM and NWA are pretty much the same airline, I wouldn't worry much about them either.
