Alternatively I would try volotea out of luxemburg. If anyone knows an easier alternative, your help would be appre...

Routing KLM To Bangkok 1982?

As I have been on the flght as a kid and it was a multiple stop - does anyone know the routing of KL805 (1st of April 1982) and KL806 (15th of April). Further, as I know the date, would anyone have the resources to get the registration of that particular 747.

Thank you and best Regards,
