KLM MD-11 Replacement

Mon Oct 09, 2000 7:24 am

Does anyone know if KLM plans to replace their MD-11s. If so, what is being considered and what will their likely choice be?

Thanks.

They will probably choose the 777-200ER or LR.

I, too, think they will choose the 777. The Dutch seem to shun Airbus. They are the only European Union (bar Luxembourg) nation without any Airbus flying/on order for any of airlines. KLM flew the A310, but retired them in 1996.
