How about EK? Are there any airport where you can see several A380s outside of DXB? That drone video made me think of that. https://youtu.be/csTkMwBE45g When EK started flying non-stop to Auckland in 2016 they used the A380 for that inaugural flight. (after that it was flown with the 777-200LR). Th...Jump to post

A Dutch aviation website (luchtvaartnieuws.nl) stated they will likely return to Amsterdam with the A380 in the Summer of 2018,
just like they did in the Summer of 2015 and 2016.
PH-BFY is now at Paramaribo-Zanderij International Airport in Suriname. It will fly back to Amsterdam in about 2 hours. 4 hours after arrival she will fly to Soekarno–Hatta International Airport in Indonesia as flight KL9865. There she will get a D-check; most likely the very last D-check for any KL...Jump to post

Thanks for the follow up. Any more going to the same shop? Lightsaber There are rumours going around KLM might send one (or more) 747-400's to Twente, but those rumours are very vague.

This will result in only 6 KLM 747-400M's left at the end of this year.
The KL routes that are served with 744Ms will become 789 routes?
Here's hoping for a miracle 748 Combi someday I'll join in. :D Yes, Iemand91, sure they can make them, but as you said, they are far less flexible and beefed up (read havier = less efficient).

Here is a hypothetical. Say KLM decided to stay with Combis as long as possible given engineering limits? Assuming the business plan analysis is firmly Combi would KLM be better to pay Boeing to certify a 747-8 Combi rather than spend the ongoing check and maintenance rebuild costs to keep 744 Comb...Jump to post

The state of the stored 747's at Teruel.
