KLC is wetleasing two aircraft a BAe 146 from WDL and a fokker 100 from Sweden.
its probably a mixup in operator codes; codes can be used by more then one operator if they operate in different regions from the world.

KLM are very short of Fokker these days. Long story and it will continue for few days/week.
Last night, my flight was cancelled because no Fokker available. 2 weeks ago, I had the chance to use F100 from Sweden Air Express. In all fairness, except the cabin color a bit retro (brown and orange), service was fine and even better than KLM.

Can you explain a bit more please. I know they had major problems yesterday and this morning on their flights to UK regional airports, with dozens of pax being re-routed by taxis and coaches between airports like EDI, GLA, MME, LBA, MAN, BHX.... and on, and on!

Yesterday's problems were wainly due to bad weather at SPL. There was a ground stop between 09.45 - 10.30 and also later in the afternoon, because of heavy thunderstorms. SPL arrival capacity was down to only 35 flights/hour iso the usual 68, causing arrival delays up to 2 hours. This effect the operations all day and even today, because of crewrest hours.
