Pardon my ignorance, but what is Ferrara City?

I would have thought the 7th 777 should be named "City of Las Vegas!" Big grin

For a description of all UNESCO World Heritage
Ferrara is a historic City in North Italy

My slight knowledge of Dutch would suggest that Kaapstad is Cape Town South Africa?

When is Tokyo starting? I heard it was March or April?

Also, what about rumours, a few months back, that MD11s might be going to Osaka. I'm hoping to go there in May (now you know how I get my KIX!)

Hello,

Starting from last weekend another route has be added, flying with the B777-200ER. This destination is Kuwait. Yesterday it was the last added B777, the PH-BQE who went to Kuwait, but came back with a 7 hours delay at AMS, because of crew sickness. Have no idea when KL will start the SFO route. About the question from Kaitak, I don't think it's true they will use a MD-11 on the KIX (Osaka) route, because it's one of KLM's best routes, with always capacity problems, the flight is always full with passengers and with cargo (because KL uses the B747-400 combi on that route!)

Groeten SPL

SPL, you forget that KIX is a relatively low yield destination (too many tourists). However the B747s are still scheduled for summer 2004
