From 30th October 2019 to 28th March 2020

From 29th March 2020, the timing is almost exactly that of the Air France CDG flight.
KL879 AMS1025 – 2320BLR 781 146
KL880 BLR0120 – 0745AMS 781 257
While this is great news, wouldn’t 4x weekly 787-900 have been a better choice than 3X weekly 787-1000?
I think KLM still has a shortage of planes. So getting the added lift to BLR helps them in the short run. I bet their plan is to go to 5-7 flights a week. At least KL is trying to send their new planes to india
