https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KLM#Fleet suggests there were 2 pax and 5 combi left, all due to go by Jan 2021.
Clear evidence that the summer season is a write off for KLM (and of course other airlines), I would say.
That was the plan but see what impact Corona has. It does however give KLM plenty time to retrain the 747 cockpit crews.
