Please at least TRY to be a bit honest in your responses. We all know of your almost insane obsession with the KLM-AF thing (some of the statements you've made about that here are irrational to say the least), and you most obviously let it cloud your judgment, but you're going a wee bit far this time, don't you think?
They were completely unsuited to KLMs mode of operation which includes mixing cargo and passengers on the same flight.
Pretty much every airline does this. It's what the plane was designed for. KLM got rid of the A310s because they lacked the range KLM needed when they changed their strategy, as explained above. Your theory makes little to no sense, and it's the very first time I've ever heard anyone bring this 'problem' forward.
At the time KLM vowed to never buy Airbus again and go for an all-Boeing fleet, something they almost accomplished.
You know, that's repeated here at infinitum by some members of this forum, and yet I've never seen it confirmed by anyone official at KLM.
The 330s were most likely purchased on orders from Paris, being a political decision more than anything.
This one takes the cake. The planes were ordered at a time when KLM was still widely rumoured to merge with BA
. Of course you'll just say that the 'evil French' were already lurking behind a corner, and BA
was used as a smokescreen, right? It also doesn't mix in with your theory that AF
will dissolve KLM in the next few years, which you've repeated here at infinitum over the last few months, because in that case AF
would have allowed KLM to order... NOTHING. Oh yeah, that's right, the planes will be delivered in AF
Sorry about the rant, but this guy has been getting on my nerves for some time now, with his assinine comments.
