KLM A330 Business Class seats conversion

Wed Dec 05, 2018 11:55 am


Does anybody know how far KLM is with the Business Class seat conversion of their A330's? I believe the A333's are all done now, but the A332's? I'm flying at the end of the month AMS-WDH and in the beginning of January WDH-AMS, both A332. I'm just trying to figure out what my chances are to end up on those unpleasant old angled ones. I don't know where to find that info. I know KL is also removing a few rows of C-class seats on the A332's. Seat guru says there are 2 versions, 1 with 30 angled lie-flat seats and 1 with 18 lie-flat seats:

Is it per definition the case that all 18 c-seated a/c have the new seats or are there also versions with 18 old style c-class seats? At the moment, on both flights the 18-seat version is scheduled I can see. So does this automatically mean it will be the new seats? Thank you.

11 out of 13 are done. PH-AOE and PH-AOF still have the old. AOE is going into maintenance this week for the upgrade and AOF at the end of the month. Chances are you will be fine in the new business class.

Have a great trip!

PH-AOF is back on the flightline. Congrats to KL for now being 100% full-flat in the widebody business department. Let’s hope the “more premium” AF will follow suit soon.

When I flew a KL A330 in Sept 2018 the seat map made it seem like the old J but when we boarded it was the new one (just like the 777). Glad they are 100% upgraded. I like KLM J (as long as I get the center section which is all aisle for both). I just wish they would improve their food a bit. I mean even their Thai and Indian dishes they serve JFK-AMS (and kudos to them for offering variety - hello Delta) are just plain BLAND. Not saying they should spend more just make it tasty. Love the Dutch chees they serve with drinks unclear why we cant have the cheese and nuts.
