On my last budget ticket out of AMS the only price fixing I got was from the government in the form of heavy taxing and outragious security fees.

Maybe KLM can suggest that they buy Airbus aircraft so the fine will be erased...

PIA was threatened to be banned from flying in the EU, however since they suggested buying new Airbus aircraft there are suggestions the EU may be turning a blind eye to PIA's troubled aircraft.

The poster was suggested if KLM buys a few A320's the matter may also be swept under the carpet.
