Trying to plan a trip to AMS on KLM's new 333s from US. Looks like IAD & ATL are the gateways. Using the Skyteam timetable, some days it says it's the 333 others 332 and 330. When it says 330 is it just a toss up as to which comes? I know it's still Summer and things can changed, but anyone have info on the 333 Winter routes?
In a side note, where is the best place to get concrete timetables. I used to use amadeus.net, but they don't tell you equipment used.

According to the slot allocation list ATL will be A330-300 on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday (KL621/2). IAD is scheduled to be an A330-200. However, do note that KL is known for its last minute adjustments. Furthermore, the slot allocation list isn't always the most reliable source, but one of the few sources where you can see KLs schedule in detail.
BTW none of the other US destinations is currently scheduled to be a A330-300. The A330-300s will fly to ATL, ACC and DAR/JRO this Winter.

Quoting BA319-131 (Reply 3): Re-read his post, he is not saying ATL is not is the US.
Directly speaking, no. What he says (and what I was getting at) is that no other US destination will receive the A333 and that they will go to ATL, ACC and DAR/JRO instead. That implies that ATL would not be in the US.
Now I'm wondering if ATL is a typo or not.
For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and ther

Quoting LJ (Reply 1): IAD is scheduled to be an A330-200
Looking at return from AMS-IAD 4-4-13. I'm guessing this would be early into the summer schedule. Anyways, KLM.com says this flight would be a 333. Do you think I'm safe since KLM.com says it's a 333 (except equipment substitution)?
