Some people believe QANTAS is some sort of word, as I saw it sometimes in magazines written as: QUANTAS, where did they get the U?
KLM in Dutch indeed stands for
It is almost imossible to pronounce well for a non-dutch, but maybe this little course on Dutch helps you.
= like Ko in kosher or 'oe' in Boeing
NIN = like ING in Chinese
= unknown sound in English, something like CLU in CLUB
= like 'ke' in Kermit
Now comes the tricky bit
LUCHT = the U is like 'E' in Kermit, and the 'CH' like Spanish 'J' in Juan
VAART = V like in Virgin, long 'A' like English 'Bath' or 'car' and a rolling 'R'
MAAT = long 'A' like English 'Bath' or 'car'
SCHAP = 'CH
' like Spanish 'J' in Juan, AP
sounds like UP
= english doesn't know the IJ
-sound, sounds like 'pay'
have fun lol
