quotes :

* It was precisely 12:33 when KLM’s 737-900 type airliner landed smoothly on runway 31 R (runway II) at Budapest Airport. The aircraft arrived from Amsterdam full to the brim, so the Dutch carrier made the right decision when it confirmed in its schedule that it will fly the Budapest route with the 900 variant, such is the demand for flights to the Hungarian capital during the summer season. The aircraft has a capacity of 189 passengers, traveling to Budapest by business and economy class.

* KLM operates three flights a day between Budapest and Amsterdam, which depart from the Hungarian capital at 06:20, 13:15 and 17:00 hours. Additionally, low cost carrier Transavia, a wholly-owned subsidiary of KLM, also commutes along this route four times a week (on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays

Now the questions: According to the article this is really a scheduled change from 737-800 to 900. How many of the daily flights are we talking about? Is it every day? Only summer season ?

KLM operates the 737 fleet randomly around the whole network. Aircraft types are choosen on demand, which makes KLM very flexible. So if the loads are lower on specific flights, they will just bring in the 737-700 or -800 for that matter. I don't take this information very serious or 'special' for that matter. KLM will do whatever they judge is best for them, no matter what that news article says.

Thanks, so they dont specifically have a timesheet with certain types operating the routes?

The airports article sounds like they really plan to operate the '900 on fixed flights.

I know it is not the first time its in Budapest since I had one in April on a AMS-BUD flight. ( Cargo full of champagne for some reason )
