AMS-YYZ
KLM 747-400
Duration: 8:15 hours

I had booked my seat in Economy Comfort to compare the two. My seat indeed had extra leg room but economy was not that bad neither.

Ok, this is a very cool thing to know. This intersection is where all Toronto spotters come to take picture of planes landing in YYZ. The famous Petro-Canada station is just right underneath the plane and can't be seen but at the intersection in summer days you can see many people including me snapping pics of planes  http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g320/alitezar/4417/image568.jpg

And this is the last pic, but my most favorite. I love this angle of the picture and love 747-400 the most along with 747-800 of course  http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g320/alitezar/4417/image578.jpg

Hope you enjoyed

Very nice series of reports on your flight from Tehran to Toronto!

KLM is so blue one definitely wants to fly with them....It is just an incredible airline from all the reports on here. Enjoyed all the wonderful pics on here.

Wow, just awesome to see the view from up there, as I'm spotting there in summer too!! I wish you had to get closer to the window and get more of the Wendy's etc lol.....but still to capture that shot is great...I'm jealous!! Whenever I fly back to YYZ I hope it's Rwy 23 but we land from the other end on 6R or 6L and usually in damp wet weather lol

Thanks, I’m glad you liked the pictures. Yes that runway is the best but so many days planes land from other runways and you can’t spot at this location, this is the only best spotting location, the rest are out of nowhere and not convenient

Lovely photos once again!
Love some of the photos you took of the sea with the clouds above. Just beautiful!
I have always wanted to see the A346 in klm colors but i dont think thats going to ever happen.  
Klm uses a non plastic tray because it adds less weight thus saving them more fuel.
Smart thing to do but , also they dont use real metal cutlery.
I dont know why other airlines have not started doing the same. At the end of the its all about saving money
Well done once again

Cheers

Hello

Interesting reviews about your KLM journey! I always liked KLM as well when I used to do AMS-ATL with them.

Great to see the MD11 as well in the log
