Update:

you also might find interesting the KL641, which is currently underway from AMS to JFK, is operated by a 77W (PH-BVD)..STA is 19:30 UTC.

The aforementioned KL645 (MD-11) is being delayed quite a bit, will try to keep you updated..

Quoting kl911 (Reply 2):

I would imagine cause Hurricane Irene forced the closure of JFK for 2 days. That's a large back log of passengers.

Yes, I realised that the moment I posted this. And maybe extra demand due to the US open?

Its sitting over by the hanger thats on the other side of the canal from the employee lot. Had a good look of it when I was riding the airtrain to the lot today. I think its UA's hanger but its right next to the fuel farm. Its outside btw not in the hanger.
