KLM US Flights

Tue Jun 26, 2007 4:57 pm

Hi..

I am planning a trip to California this summer and the flights will be on KLM. I saw that the flight LAX - AMS will be by 747 but I couldn't find which A/C is used on the route AMS - SFO. On A.net I saw 767, MD-11 and 777.

How can I find which type will be used? I checked on KLM website but they don't give the details.

Also if you had these flights please tell about your experiences. (I will fly on economy  Sad )

Thnxxx in advance

Emrecan

Hi,

As far as I know, SFO-AMS is or at least was MD11 route, depending of the season.
KVS Availability Tool reports for today a flight operated by a 744.

Hope this help,

FYI, KLM has retired the 767s from its fleet.
Once you have tasted flight, you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward; for there you long to return

There have been quite a number of threads in recent two months on this topic, but this summer:

AMS-SFO-AMS (KL 605-606) is a 744
AMS-LAX-AMS (KL 601-602) is a 74E
AMS-LAX-AMS (KL 603-604) is a 772

I hope I will catch a 777. 747s are also perfect but without PTVs the flights are very boring  Sad

Last year I've flown on LH 747s and I really got bored.

The 777s return to the AMS SFO route in November only. Until then, it's a full passenger B744.

Hi All.

Im taking KLM but in the opposite direction in august, JFK-AMS.

The aircraft is a 744, but Im not sure if its a combi or not. Can anyone enlighten me?

Also, does anyone out there know the progress of KLM's refitting of the 744's to the new world business class. Would love to know my chances of getting on one of those refitted birds.

Regards,

7474LIFE
