Those doors have more bolts than most vault doors I reckon.

Nice angle.
Reason for bolts is that when the air pressure is set during the cruise to simulate 5000ft atomospheric pressure, it is considerably high in comparison to the outside air pressure. The doors are the weakest points and therefore need to be bolted solid to not let air escape. Some aircraft have larger doors that doorframes, and the are closed from the inside, so the pressure keeps them locked shut.

All KLM 777s are named after world heritage sites, except PH-BQA which is named after KLM's founder, Albert Plesman
