This topic has already been discussed in another thread called "Status Of KLM's MD-11's" and "KLM MD-11 Question". However I believe both have been archived and I don't know how to link them.

According to the KLM website;

"At the end of 2008, the entertainment system in the MD11s will be renewed. Then seats in both the World Business Class and the Economy Class will be equipped with a personal screen with an on-demand video system, games, text messaging and e-mail services as well as the three new programs listed above."

I'm flying on a KLM MD-11 to Delhi next week and I was wondering how may of the 10 aircraft have been refitted.

Back in May, it seemed as though 3 aircraft had been refitted.

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Yesterday KL AMS-PTY MD11 was refurbished.
The inflight entertainment controls are better than VS, at least you don't turn on the light when you move in your seat.

So does anyone have any idea how much longer KLM might operate these MD11's for if they are currently willing to spend on cabin improvements?

If you read the thread "Status Of KLM's MD-11's", it quotes Wikipedia which reckons KLM will be operating the MD-11's until 2014/2015.

2travel2know, you don't happen to know what the reg of the aircraft was do you?

Can anyone answer the original question, i.e. how many out of the 10 aircraft have been refurbished?

Nope, the only widebodies in SXM are:

Air France A340-300
Arkefly 767-300
Corsair 747-400
KLM MD-11

KLM used the 744 to SXM in the past though, but the dutch caribbean are now MD-11 only.
