KLM 737 Scheduling?

Mon Mar 29, 2004 11:53 am

From the first new 737 delivery to KLM, their timetables and CRS displays have never shown more than "737" as the equipment type on routes flown by the type. I recall a statement from KLM, back when the only 737 types in their fleet were the -306 and -406, that the differing seating capacities and common flight crew ratings of the type offered scheduling flexibility in response to demand.

With their fleet now including four 737 variants ranging in capacity from the -300 to the -900, does KLM schedule their 737 types on a day-to-day basis based on actual flight loads booked, or is a specific type assigned to each route weeks or months in advance based on anticipated demand?
