On the other hand, KL's sister company, AF, also operates narrowbody services to business destinations (the A319LR Dedicate).

How impressive for IAH!!
Man, this means daily 744M AMS-IAH-AMS, thrice weekly 767 AMS-IAH-AMS and now this BBJ AMS-IAH-AMS!
This on top of CO's own AMS-IAH service.
I simply didn't realize how busy the oil run is between these two cities, and why IAH is one of KLM's best performing cities.
|Quoting Thomasphoto60 (Reply 2):|
BTW, does a 737-700 have the range to make a n/s flight from AMS to IAH (assuming that this will be a n/s flight)?
|Quoting KLMA330 (Reply 9):|
BBJ's have extended range due to the fact that they're alot lighter than normal 737's.
|Quoting MauriceB (Reply 15):|
since it will be the first City to be served with the A330
|Quoting MauriceB (Reply 21):|
woops... sorry guy's.... IAD/IAH i messed up with the H and D... but eventually both will become A330 airports since they will replace the 767 Wink
|Quoting KaiGywer (Reply 23):|
What is funny on this site is how many people say they wouldn't fly a narrowbody across the pond
|Quoting N77014 (Reply 28):|
What labor implications does this have for KL/LH?...If the franchise expands anymore will their crews request a scope clause in future contracts?
|Quoting N1120A (Reply 14):|
Actually, they are heavier. The BBJ1 is a 737-700 airframe with the wing from the 737-800 (Stronger, but heavier), high rated engines and extra fuel tanks. It is also longer ranged than the A319CJ/LR.
|Quoting N77014 (Reply 26):|
I think this also boosts IAH as probably the premier gateway to europe from the south-central USA.
|Quoting LJ (Reply 30):|
The Dutch unions already they were not happy as they prefer to see growth at KLM not at a new partner. However, as long as it deosn't mean lay offs i don't see the unions doing anything about it.
