Strange to have them on a Tuesday...
You'd have thought they would have least put them on at a weekend.

Any link for booking/info...?

They're retiring the MD-11 in the '11th' month and on the '11th' day. Get it   ?

I wonder how they're going to do seat assignments!? Since this is my first MD-11 flight, I really want a window (I'm sure we all do)!

The flight times will be passed by EMail within the next 2 weeks. No seat reservation possible, only booking, you don´t know on which flight you are, hurry up, only a few seats left.

When I try to book I get the message 'something went wrong'. It doesn't look like any more tickets are available.

Thanks for posting and thanks to KLM for doing the farewell flights... 111 Euros to fly on a MD-11 on 11/11... too bad it's not 2011 anymore   I remember exactly what I was doing at 11:11:11 on 11/11/11 and it was not flying on a MD-11  

BTW, it's a shame they are not having 11 farewell flights on the day - with one departing @ 11:11 of course

You just have to keep hitting Submit. I had to do it like 20 times to get it to advance to the next screen, but it finally did.

Thanks for the advice. I think I'm too late for that now, as the booking link is removed from the homepage.

All three flights are completely sold out, so refreshing the page isn't necessary.

I guess you should be happy if could get a ticket for the farewell flight of KL's MD11. But do understand if you are unhappy as again there is one less nice aircraft flying around the planet.

BTW, it only shows that we all are getting older and this without looking in the mirror

Yes, received it about an hour ago. Booked on KL9895, STD 10.30 (damn and blast, my preference was from the latest to the earliest, oh well... ).

How do they know they're window seats? To the best of my knowledge, we get seat assignments at the check-in, do we not?

They have a special agreement with KLM, hence Tickets are sold at a higher price. Air Events specialises on such tours.
