How Does NW Filing For Ch.11 Affect KLM?

Fri Sep 16, 2005 8:56 am

We all know that KLM and NW are one of the closest partners in the aviation world we have today. Since NW filed for chapter 11 for protetion, does this affect KLM in any way. What will happen to KLM if NWA is going bankrupt and stops all its flights???

I'm not really sure. I don't think NW will stop all its flights, they can't afford that.

And by the way, could AF be involved in this situation?
Flying isn't dangerous. Crashing is what's dangerous!

NW states that operations are close to normal. KLM needs all the passengers that are fed by all incoming NW flights from India and the US!

At the moment, there is no direct affect on KL. NW is operating its normal schedule - if NW does dramatically cut back US domestic flying as part of its reorganization plan, KL may not be very happy as that move could cut back US domestic feed to the KL/NW overseas flights.
