I truly despise KLM.
That's unnecessary for an intra-Europe op-up on KLM since there is no extra room in first place with the exception of a very small # of 737's with 2/3 seating forward (which may well have reverted to 3/3 by now).

KLM uses a moveable curtain. An op up just means you get to fill dead space in the forward area.

There is nothing particular select about Europe Select. I wouldn't pay nickel for it. Calling Europe Select "World Business Class" is a bad joke.

It's pathetic that they skipped over you in the meal service. My wife and I did receive a nice shrimp lunch on an AMS-OSL op-up a while back.
