KLM To Adjust Summer 2003 Schedule

Mon Feb 03, 2003 4:36 pm

I just received the news that KLM will adjust summer 2003 capacity on "some routes". Nothing yet on which routes will see an adjustment but certain that 1 B747-300 and two F50 will leave KLM. In addition KLM may withdraw another B747-300 and/or 1 F50 from service if necessary.

From that list I see reason to store an F50 but not a 747.
The latter may be a mistake caused by the planned introduction of the first new aircraft later this year, which will replace a 747.
I wish I were flying

I can only say that this development is very disappointing for KLM, especially in the light of LH continuingly increasing long haul services [PDX, MEX, India, etc]. LH seems not to be able to operate all their long haul flights due to shortage of equipment [leasing in 332/340s] while KLM is getting rid of long haul equipment?

Hello,

I'm flying KLM to CPT next week from AMS. They use 747-400's on the route, have they ever used a 747-200 or 300?
