What ever happened to the planned third daily AMS-JFK flight by KLM/NWA? The one that was panned to depart AMS around 8:30 or so in the morning. Wasn't there talk that these flight would be run by NWA using a 757? Just wondering what ever happened of this planned flight?


The fun of flying... love it !!!

Weird, I can't seem to find it either. However, in the JFK-AMS market; DL is retiming it's JFK-AMS 763 to a 9pm departure, makes it great for connections at Amsterdam, though not so convenient if you want a day of business at AMS.

NW/KLM decided not to operate this 3rd daily AMS-JFK flight.

Instead, NW will be flying 2x daily 757's on EWR-AMS.

Although currently 642 is the MD11, and 644 is the 744 Combi...so I'm sure its not a lift issue. Love to see those 3 holers though, nice change from Finnair as the only pax version.

It looks like nights they're flying 2 747s?

KL really needs a morning departure AMSJFK; they cannot compete from Africa to JFK without it.

Quoting AF022 (Reply 5):

They will have a Newark departure in the 10am bank, then a JFK departure in the 1pm bank, then again Newark in the afternoon 3.30pm bank and finally another JFK in the 6pm evening bank. The proposed KL645/646 AMS JFK AMS third daily connection was to be scheduled in the 8am departure bank but after disappointing results with a five weekly AMS LAX flight last summer, that idea has been all but given up, although NW will continue to operate flights to DTW and BOS in that departure bank.
