When is the 777 scheduled to enter service with KLM? Also, what engine type will power their Triple Sevens? Are the 777s ordered by KL the -200ER variant? Is there a post from the recent past were detail questions like these are answered? Thanks for any help you can offer!

How about DTW? Will DTW be seeing KLM's 777 or the A330 they are getting... or still the 747?

And what about MEM? KLM uses the MD11 on the AMS-MEM route in the peak season, and the triple-seven would be a perfect replacement.

KLM is "leaving" DTW again this summer. NW aircraft will be placed on the KL operated DTW-AMS and a KL aircraft will be placed on the NW operated JFK-AMS. Everything else stays the same. Of course, with the profit sharing aggrement, KL and NW are one airline across the Atlantic, so they shift gauges frequently and without hesitation.
