Can anyone give me an overview which airlines use which gates at Amsterdam? Also, which gates are Schengen, which not? What about Air France, always the same gate, or using any gate of otherwise KLM-used gates?
The Schiphol website is nice, but it doesn't have that info. The only one I know is that NW seems to use the E Pier. What about the others? Is there one Pier that is reserved for KLM? Any gates reserved for Transavia?
Finally: what about the cargo stands? Are some of them reserved for Martinair Cargo, or any other carriers?

Maersk Air is only flying to BLL, Sterling has flights to CPH...
Quoting Raffik (Reply 1): Transavia (Alicante, Antalya, Banjul, Barcelona, Berlin Schönefeld, Bodrum, Copenhagen, Dalaman, Djerba, Faro, Izmir, Las Palma, Madrid, Malaga, Milan Linate, Monastir, Nice, Palma, Pisa, Reus, Tenerife, Treviso
Antalya, Banjul, Bodrum, Dalaman, Djerba, Izmir and Monastir are non Schengen destinations and will depart from the D pier as the B pier is "Schengen only"
Transavia is serving Tegel iso Schoenefeld...
Quoting Raffik (Reply 1): Air France (Bordeaux, Marseille, Nice, Lyon, Paris/CDG, Stavanger, Trondheim)
If you mean "Pier F" iso "Hall F", then you can switch most of the carriers you mention to the D pier as the F pier is used for KLM, KLM Partner and KLM handled Longhaul flights and next to it, Air Moldava isn't flying to AMS any longer...

This really got me in trouble one day, as I had forgotten that those are on different floors - in my case the D-pier only went as far as D57 (or so) and I had to be at D75... then I had to back and take the higher floor, nearly missed my flight, the D-pier is big!

To complete all of the above:
B-pier = All Schengen flights from all different airlines not belonging to Skyteam
,busstation gates B22-28 is used by KLM Cityhopper Schengen flights, HV Schengen flights, LCC Schengen flights (AB, Vueling, Sterling)
C-pier = KL Schengen flights, KLMCityhopper Schengen flights from busstation
gates C 21-29, HV Schengen flights, AF CDG-flights (C5/C7/C9)
D-pier = gates D2-57, mainly used by KL for non-Schengen flights for all sorts of destinations served with B737/B767/B777/MD11/A330, HV non-Schenegen flights, all other airlines serving non-Schengen destinations, a.o. OK, MA, PS, OHY, BA, BD, VG, MP, EI, TE, LO, CY, SU, FB
D-pier = gates D59-87, KL and HV Schengen flights.
Actually, OS 374 and 376 (afternoon and evening flights to VIE) are operated by Tyrolean.
The D-pier is an interesting one as it is flexible Shengen/Non-Shengen. The Shengen part is on the upper floor, the non-Shengen part on the lower floor, they switch it at the doors of the gates.
Slightly off-topic, but concerning the H-pier. When opened, it was stated the pier could handle 50+ daily departures, so plenty of space to expand left. But... it is non-Shengen. And when the central- and eastern European countries and Switzerland will join the Shengen treaty, there is not too much low-cost flying left for the H-pier. The UK (but to me I don't feel there is much room left in the UK-NL market), Ireland, Turkey... Does anybody know what the plans are in this field? Any plans for a Shengen LCC pier?

I have to say, these posts make AMS sound like a somewhat complicated airport to encounter. However, having flown both schengen and non-schengen flights out of AMS, the airport was very easy to navigate carrier to carrier.
Quoting Joost (Reply 9): Does anybody know what the plans are in this field? Any plans for a Shengen LCC pier?
Yes, it will be called "M-pier" and is indicated on some of the big yellow airportsigns already. It's actually the same as the H-pier. I think they just need to figure out how to seperate he Schengen and non-Schengen passengers.

Quoting Joost (Reply 15): They now offer daily service to DUS instead. Maybe they booked your cargo on a road-feeder to DUS, they booked space on the KL flight, or they routed it through CPH?
Nope, the cargo was for their own Riga flight (BT612) I've clearly read it on the booking form...
It isn't a really big shock that BT stopped their AMS flights, passenger loads where very, very poor on the 737-500 (mostly around 30 to 40 pax) The last period they where always cancelling flights and operated just 1 x weekly to AMS, which is the worst thing you can do to try to make a better reputation...
Again, KLM is the winner on a route with 2 daily flights, but with such a tinny airline as BT as competitor it isn't that difficult...
Swiss has changed to the G-pier when the winter schedule has become active (maybe slightly before)
It's pretty funny when you have to find the Embraer 145 for the Basle flight between the widebody's at the G-pier, becausse they are not parked at the apron but at G02
