First KLM will replace the 742. They are to be replaced by either the 330 or the 777. Not both of them. In time the MD-11 and the 767 wil be replaced by the same type. When that wil happen is as far as I know unknown. Maybe in 5 years, maybe in 10 years maybe later. Your guess is as good as mine.

I say KLM goes for the GE90 powered 777-200ER or 300ER to replace their GE CF6 powered 767s & MD-11s being that they are a major Boeing customer.

they were unhappy with the a310's so they should go for the 7's!

Why does this always come up? check the forum histry, this topic has been discussed at least 8 times already in the fast few months. And also KLM is not going to retire or aqquire any new aircraft at the moment.
Once you have tasted flight, you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward; for there you long to return

It's a buyer's market now though.

Whenever it happens, I predict 773/772 for the 743/MD-11 replacement.

Although the MD-11 & 763 are relatively new...they could last the decade.
