KLM 744s At ORD The Past Few Days

Wed Feb 18, 2004 11:25 am

KLM Asia 744 at ORD on Saturday and KLM 744 today. Schedule shows 74M. Anyone know the reason for the upgrade?

I was at ORD on both Thursday and Sunday, and the KL aircraft present was definitely a 74M. Maybe the two 744s were last minute equipment changes due to tech problems?

I don't think the 743s are flying into ORD any longer. Are they even with KLM any longer except for cargo flights?

The 743s were retired recently. 74M refers to a Combi 747-400. Did it have a side cargo door? KLM only has 747-400s at this point, including combis and all pax versions.
