Schiphol landing restrictions this summer?

I've read that Amsterdam Schiphol airport is limiting widebody landings in the morning hours. Does anyone know if this is just for the summer season, or is it permanent? KLM says these restrictions could lead to flight delays or cancellations, so I'm concerned about booking KLM flights from the US to Europe in September 2019 that transfer in Schiphol. KLM says they can't give me any details about the restrictions, that I should contact Schiphol.

See here.

Just book a reasonable connection (about two hours, which you should do anyway when transiting AMS) and not the last flight of the day to your final destination.

Also having booked on 1 ticket helps as if you are delayed the KLM will get you to your destination.

On separate tickets on many airlines ( not sure about KLM specifically) you could be out of luck if the first flight is dealyed and you miss the second one.
