A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu February 16, 2012:
I like it, yes... but what really is going on in my mind, since it's now been more than 3 years since this one was painted this way: 1 when are they going to change it back to standard (hopefully never:)) 2 what is KLM going to do in 7 years (2019)? For your information, or as a reminder: the K(oninklijke) L(uchtvaart) M(aatschappij) was founded on October 7, 1919. With Mexicana bankrupt (also 1919)... The Flying Dutchman will have the honour of throwing a jubilee party with splendid retro birds like noone has ever seen before... but will they fix something sweet?
Sweet dreams in the meantime...

Interesting combination of retro (livery) and modern(winglets).

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue December 22, 2009:
One of the best retro livery what I`ve seen.
Good job. Regards von Suat

A visitor from United States posted Sun October 11, 2009:
In my opinion, this is my favorite retro paint job that I have seen since the American Airlines 757 and 737. Now when is United going to do an original delivery 747 or stars and bars 777? Kudos to KLM. Awesome paint!!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon August 3, 2009:
Lovely photo of a gorgeous paint job!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Fri January 2, 2009:
Great livery! The black dot on the nose is a nice touch, making it look even more vintage.

A visitor from United States posted Thu January 1, 2009:

A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu January 1, 2009:
The best scheme tehy could have chosen! And I was on this tandem flight together with a KLM 772! Lots of fog and clouds in the south, but fortunatly good vis in the North of the country. I especially loved the flyby over SPL at the end.

A visitor from United States posted Thu January 1, 2009:
Absolutely gorgeous! The 737 lends itself so well to these retro paint schemes!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu January 1, 2009:
Nice one klm, love this paint scheme and it would look rather nice on the rest of the fleet

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu January 1, 2009:
