Whatever happened to airlines like Philipine Airlines, Korean Air, South African, Emirates, Thai in AMS. They don't seem to be interested (anymore) in flying to AMS with their own equipment. Are they codesharing ?
Is Garuda still doing AMS at this point ? I am not sure about that.

Quoting Cornish (Reply 2): Garuda stoped all European services a couple of years ago
Not entirely true, because I have found photos here on a.net from Garuda at AMS in 2004, just not in 2005.
That's why I am wondering if Garuda finally decided to also quit AMS, which to me sounds strange because of the historical bonds between Indonesia and The Netherlands.

GA decided in July 2004 to stop CGK-AMS flights beginning in October 2004. Thsi was their last remaining flight to Europe. Last week there was a thread about it: Garuda Indonesia And Europe - What Happened? (by Lazyshaun May 12 2005 in Civil Aviation).
Sad thing: no more pics of a nice GA bird at AMS

AMS is not giving EK rights to land for one reason or another. I think it is to protect KLM. But EK Sky Cargo flies to AMS.
I wonder now after Air France bought KLM, would EK apply for landing rights again? EK somehow is not getting landing right to Holland and also to Spain. Something to do with KLM and Iberia, as far as I heard.

EK156 you're incorrect. All the slots EK has (and gets) are used (and probably will be used) for its cargo flights at this this the most porfitable. AMS is still low yield for pax but high yield for cargo. Furthermore, EK serves the Dutch market from DUS

PR is codesharing with KLM (KLM 777) EK flies cargo into AMS (very profitable I've been told), Thai just has probably no real business in AMS as AMS-BKK is already crowded (even before Phuket Air came and left) and South African has focussed on other airports.
We also lost Air India, Bangladesh Biman, Gulf Air, SriLanka (okay at the time it was still called Air Lanka), Aerolineas Argentinas and a lot more.

Hmmm.... AMS is quite an important connecting airport. I wonder why emirates is using it only for Cargo. They are flying to Vienna, DUS, soon Geneva and Hamburg. Do you thing the traffic to these airports is higher than that to AMS?
What about Spain? Howcome EK doesn't fly to Spain?
