I will be flying with KLM this summer from Montreal to Amsterdam (B747) and then to Bucharest(B737). Any of you flew with KLM recently? How is the service like? Anything in particular? Any chance I could get the jump seat?

Last June I flew MSP-AMS then AMS-KBP (Kiev) 747 and 737. On the MSP-AMS flight I flew PH-BUU. Three hours in the flight I asked the FA if I could visit the flight deck. It was no problem. I ended up talking to the pilots for one hour. I did not ask about siting in the jump seat while landing. Enjoy your trip!!!!!!

Ask for a view fo the cockpit earlyer in the flight so the attendant can pick a moment when it is most convenient. When the workload is high, cockpit visits are usually kept brief. I have not heard of anyone riding jumpseat unless your related or an employee.

On European flights, do take your own food, though. KLM will serve only a single sandwich. Depending on time of day, it will be frozen or dry as a bone (at least that is my experience). Drinks are usually provided once or twice (depending on the length of the flight).

Federal regulations in the U.S. do not allow cockpit visits by any airline in their territory.This is to prevent hijackings and other stuff.Only the flight attendants and the pilots(obviously) are allowed into the cockpit.
