KLM To Add More 777's And F100's

Thu Sep 22, 2005 11:46 pm

http://www.luchtvaartnieuws.nl/news/?ID=10351

KLM's Peter Hartman said that KLM will add 3 new F100's from deBis AirFinance this year. They wanted F-70's but could not be found. Also for future expansion they will look for further 777's (probably 772ER IMHO)

this article reads, "the chance exists that KLM orders more tripple sevens" and "to realise growth for the longhaul destinations KLM possibly needs extra 777's"

Last month Van Wijk suggested to Airbus KLM orders more A330's. Let's just suggest they will order new aircrafts in the future....

Is there really no chance they'd order 773ERs for growth (given that AF, their "sister company", also flies them)?

Tough call. It's always possible of course. But IMHO they will order them when they want to replace the 744's as Leo van Wijk has stated they have no interest in the A380. And because they only have 4 or 5 full pax 744, I believe they won't order the 747adv., rather some 773ER's and 777F's.

The Fokker 100s are 3 ex-Pelita F100`s, MSN 11444, 11475 and 11477. They will join the fleet as PH-OFL, PH-OFM and PH-OFN. http://www.fokker-aircraft.info/
These planes are now stored at DNR together with 11445. Anyone knows where the latter will end up?

You're right, should have read it better.

You are also right. I wonder if KLM themselves know wich one they will add. I guess they will wait and see how the a332 performs for them.

Is KL looking to get rid of their B744 full pax? Perhaps the fuel situation is making airlines rethink their fleet plans.

No I meant WHEN they will get rid of them. Let's face it, BFA is 16 years old, so IMHO it won't be that long down the road

At the official opening today of the KLM Schengen Crown Lounge at AMS, the audience was apparently told that KL will order more 772ERs. Wasn't there myself, so I can't provide details.

The 773ER would be more of a replacement for the 744, and i'd think KL will keep those, or at least the combi's until the they before they fall apart, as it's unlikely they can get new combi's and they make them a lot of money... Maybe the 773ER is considered if they can convert the 744 pax to combi (don't know if that's even possible)

Let's not forget that KLM are in the process of negotiating for their 15th & 16th B772ERs. Will be interesting to see if they're negotiating for another model, which some of the wording may well imply.
