KLM At YVR Question

Wed Aug 06, 2003 5:27 am

I was just wondering does KLM fly any Md-11's into YVR still or is it mainly 767-300's?
thanks for any info

I haven't seen any MD-11's fly into Vancouver in three years, only 767-300's.

In fact, I've only seen one MD-11 ever fly into Vancouver in the past three years, a JAL bird on some charter flight.

I just flew out of YVR on Saturday and only saw a Cathay Pacific A3406. No MD-11's. Most airlines are phasing the aircraft out.

KLM used to fly 743's from YVR to AMS 4 times a week, 3x nonstop and 1x via YYC. They replaced that with 4x a week nonstop MD-11's around 1996, it went daily in 1997. 763's replaced the MD-11's for the winter season only, but in 1998 they decided to use 763's year round.

If you want to see a KLM MD-11, come on down to SFO. KLM used to fly the 744, but have switched to the MD-11 for quite some time now. And if you like DC-10's, you can catch NWA flight 27 to NRT! A DC-10-30 or 40. I can't tell the difference.
