I sure hope all three of them are still in the fleet, because I luuuvvvvv KLM's 747-300's. I think the 743 looks best in KLM livery. I sure hope that none of KLM's pure 743's are retired. I could care less about all of those converted 742's that KLM had. Those were some old jets! But as far as the three that I have mentioned, I hope that they are still in the fleet! I will miss them when they are gone!

Those converted SUD's maybe old, but KLM's engineering & maintenance standards are second to none.
The cockpits were modernised with LCD's, digital engine fuel monitoring, flight management systems and ACARS. I assume this removed the need for an E/O, anyone know for sure?
