YEP! Have flown the NWA A330!
I work for KLM and while training their pilots on the A330 NWA held some employee survey flights. The flights were made in August on the Detroit - Amsterdam route.
On three of those flights KLM employees (40 per flight) were invited to fly to Detroit and back to Amsterdam the next day. I was one of the lucky who got onboard.
The aircraft flies great and very comfortable. Especially the new business class seats which are unbelievable!
The inflight entertainment system is also great. Video on demand (a dozen or so movies to choose), games (bit dull, but I guess a game must be neutral) and email. The economy passengers have a screen in the seat in front of them. The business class passengers have a really HUGE screen that comes up from the arm-rest.
Don't know if the pilots were just that good, or if it's the aircraft, but both landings were extremely smooth.
Looking forward to my next flight onboard an A330. KLM will get some in 2005.
Off topic; KLM's first 777-200ER (reg. PH
-BQA) is in the final stages of assembly. The cabin interior is being installed right now. She already bears the new KLM colors. To bad I am not allowed to share the photo's I have with you guys. The PH
-BQA will arrive at KLM's homebase Amsterdam Schiphol (EHAM) at October 25th.
