Thanks for the heads up! I don't think we've seen their 777 here yet. A rare KLM MD-11 now and then, but I don't recall a KLM 777 visiting ORD in the past. Any idea why the substitution?

Quoting SK601 (Thread starter):
KLM 611/612 AMS/ORD/AMS will be operated with a B777 iso the regular B74M.

How does KL crew scheduling deal with a situation like this? Do they know 24 hours in advance and send over a 777 crew to operate 612?
Will the crew from todays 611 then dead head back to AMS on Wednesday?
