KLM formerly had a First class called "Royal Class" IIRC.

Would anyone have some information about it please?
Whene it was removed? What aircraft featured that First class and how many seats?
What kind of service did they offer?

I have a brochure back from 1989 when ROyal CLass was still in existance. It looks pretty much like the First Classes of the 80's Seats with 60 inches of pitch, elegant meal complete with caviar and chilled vodka for hors d'oeuvres. The seats were blue with little yellow horizontal pin-stripes across the middle. It was an attractive cabin. It is interesting that in my brochure they advertise testing of PTV's on select routs in the future. Overall it looed nice. I think it was only on their 747's but I am not absolutly sure. Hope this helps.

The decision for KLm to go just to World Business Class was incoperation with NW. However, it is intersting that NW kept First Class on its 747s until this year.

Still the new World Business Class is better than many airlines First Class (well not the sleepers but the regular
