AF/KL Long Haul Fleet In 2020

Hello all, I just read the interesting topic of the possible composition of the long haul fleet of <acronym title="British Airways">BA</acronym> in 2020. This made me decide to start a similar topic about the possible look of the long haul fleet of KLM/Air France. KLM has had some kind of tradition ...

RE: KLM To Install Slim Economy Seating On All B777s

Long live the A330!!! The only plane that will remain comfortable because I don't expect them to install a 3-3-3 lay-out....or am I wrong?

RE: Why AA Did Not Order 767-400ER?

Because they ordered the 777-200er which met their needs better than the 764. The 77E has more range too. Or they should have chosen the A330-300. But during that time, their relation with Airbus was not that good (NYC crash) and the A330 was not the plane they need (lack of range - by that time).
