I know that if a plane's name is "City of Nairobi" is doesn't have to mean it (only) flies to Nairobi but still... why give a 747 the name "City of Nairobi" if KL's 767's fly there. If a 767 had that name, it would make more sense.
Are there any airliners that operate ONLY Boeing or ONLY Airbus aircraft and if they do, WHY? I know for example FR only flies Boeing, but...why?
Does anybody know when all plane's of NW will be in the new livery? A few days ago I was at AMS and I saw a MD DC-30-10 from NW in the 'old' livery. Ugly, compared to the new one
How many plane's does KL have in her fleet and how much of each plane? Are all 777's delivered and I heard that KL is going to get A330's, is this true?
Thanks a lot for any reply!

KLM's names for their aircraft are pretty good - if I recall correctly...
737's - Explorers (Dutch and others - same as the DC8's)
DC9's - European cities
A310's - Painters (Dutch I think)
MD11's - famous women
767's - famous bridges
777 - Aviation pioneers (names from the old 747-200/SUDs)
744 - World cities starting with the last letter of the reg eg. PH-BFN City of Nairobi. The city is always (or wherever possible) a KLM destination (current or past)
