I am going to be flying from IAH-AMS. My options are KLM or CO. I have never flown internationally on either, does anyone suggest one over the other. Most importantly do they have PVTs, the CO flight is on a 764 and KLM on a 744. Thanks for your help!

our 764's all have PVT's, the service should be great, if you fly on KLM, it probably is a pretty old plane, while the 764 you'll fly on is at most 4 years old or less, maybe only a year old. Give CO a try, I'm sure you wont be dissapointed. Plus, the seating arrangement on the 764 is 2-3-2, much better than 3-4-3 or however they have theres.

Definitely try out CO's 767 service - the entire fleet is 4 years old or so.

CO is up there in terms of most modern longhaul fleet.

you could fly CO, with the 764, which is a young plane, or you could go with KLM, with the 744. Id go with KLM, because it was a European airline, but the choice is really up to you.

I'd go with CO. I've flown both airlines overseas, and CO's 767 fleet is more comfortable than the KLM 744's. KLM is nice, however, CO's 767's are simply awesome.

I regularly fly between Texas and New York, and I always go CO because they have a few flights a day from IAH to EWR with 767/777s. These aircraft are very comfortable, and the service is pretty good. In addition, I have flown CO to Europe on three occasions, always with a 762 or 764. Their international crews are always very friendly and helpful. I have also flown KL trans-atlantic. They both have friendly crews and good service, so the difference is in the seats. Pitch on both CO and KL is limited, so the real difference is the PTV. So there it is...CO wins by a PTV. Have a good flight!
