It just rolled out today at AMS. Ok it's not the classic surinam airways c/s but we knew it was gonna be white like this. No reg has been applied yet, because the deal with surinam is not fully completed yet. As for now it's still under dutch register as PH-BUW

It is so nice to see my scketch applied in real..., anyways,
From what i understand from SLM is that they will have a 2 class (Bus and Eco), and pretty much the same as how it used to be on KLM, when they used the 743 on the PBM route. I hope they can give the people a bit more room though, that would be so nice, esp with those high fares on the route.
GO SLM, and hope to see you (PZ-TCM) soon in the air...

Yes, a little retro but nice and clean. Can anyone venture if the prospective loads on this route will justify this size of aircraft? I do remember quite awhile ago it being discussed but could not find it in a search.

There were already PY cockpit and cabin crewmembers flying the AMS-Paramaribo route together with KL crewmembers. If I am correct it is a 50/50 deal, just like KL had with the now defunct ALM Antillean Airlines on the routes between AMS to the Dutch Caribbean and flights between the Dutch Caribbean to LIM, Quito and Guayaquil.
My question is if the crew will be completely seperate now, or still work together?

Congratulations Surinam Airways!!!
A fine aircraft and nice recognizable colorscheme. Will be great seeing the so much missed orange SLM aircraft at Schiphol again! (Wasn´t the old DC8 their last a/c seen in AMS?). Good idea of securing the PBM-AMS v.v. route now KLM is in french hands

Oh yeah... Tim you are right! That must have been when the DC8 "Anthony Nesty" of them crashed at Zanderij airport PBM on approach. Wasn´t that aircraft full of soccerplayers flying over to Surinam to play a soccermatch? I remember it was a tragic accident, and was the reason they stopped flying to AMS. Wasn´t this DC8 their only long range aircraft they had left?
