KLM Check In Question

Mon Jan 08, 2007 6:33 am

Hi Guys,
I was supposed to fly out today on KL 458 to Amsterdam and onwards to Manchester, but the flight was severely delayed and won't leave until tomorrow night. I had already checked in for that flight and even changed, my seats, etc. this flight is normally operated by an A330, however the aircraft was changed to a 747-400...so I assume that the seat I chose on the A330 wouldn't be valid. So within the 30 hour timeframe that KLM gives to check in online for flights, I tried to check in again (as you can normally do to change your seat), however i kept getting the message that it wasn'tpossible to check in...) When I called the KLM office at the airport here in Kuwait they knew my last name after I gave them my family name, so I assume the booking is still there and there is no reason to worry...Any tips on what I should do? should I just wait until I go to the airport tomorrow and check in the old fashioned way? Also, does anyone know if it will be a full passenger or a combi version that we are getting this time?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

KWI

AFAIK they send the 332 after all, but I might be wrong as I am realying on public sources and I don't have inside KLM knowlegde on this matter.

Sorry, you were right, it has been operated by a 74E.
Hope you had a good flight.

The message you were about to post is too short and probably not of any higher value to the topic at hand. You should think long and hard before posting a message in this forum and make it detailed and a valuable addition to the topic discussed.

Avoid posting "Me Too" messages. These are messages that are posted by people who agree to a point being discussed and post a one liner, "me too!", "Good post Jim!", "I disagree" or similar message. This takes up time as readers must sort through these messages which have no real value to the group at large. Any message containing nothing more than a line or two of text is probably not worth posting.

If you have an opinion on a topic, you should in detail express why you have the opinion and what made you come to that conclusion.

Your post should be relevant to the topic discussed.

If you were checked in for the original flight and a configuration change has taken place you'll be automatically reseated. So you're still checked-in but you just don't know which seat and Internet Check-In doesn't provide for that contingency.

The best option is to go to the airport on time and have them provide you with a new boarding pass and you might still be able to change your seat assignment.

The KLm office should be able to provide you with the information about your new seat too I'd think.

Have a good flight in spite of the delay!
I wish that all skies were orange and blue!!
