Let's just say it's not readily available to the travelling public.

Yeah, we appreciate you sharing this with us Ralph.

Thus the IRROPS saga continues. Knock on wood my Cape Town flight out Thursday doesn't get wiped out...

The 600 those passengers receive will, in some cases, more than cover the cost of their tickets.

Result!!! ^

Do you get extra compensation if you travel in business class?

No, not based on EU261 and KLM is not known to be extra generous

Indeed you do not. But if there is a need for hotels and / or meals they tend to be more generous to J and STE+ customers. (indeed, the hotel budget is much higher)

It looks like the affected 787 is flying again!

The PH-BHF is now flying to Delhi after being on the ground for over a month. Though yesterday, another 777 had to return to PVG due to engine problems.

You've got to be f^{*#* kidding me: KL605 tomorrow SFO-AMS cancelled again. Is every flight I am on to and from SFO going to be cancelled?

I'm a massive KL fan, but this is getting to the point where I need to start looking for a carrier that can actually get me somewhere.

I'm on KL605 next month. I sure hope you're not booked to fly on the same date as me!!!

(You seem to have mixed up your 605 and 606. Odd numbers are from AMS, not to...though of course if the 605 is cancelled, that day's 606 must also by necessity be cancelled, too!)

It is the one ex-AMS, I'm trying to get home! And of course I booked my parents on it too.

Rebooked us via AF. No huisje, but still a same day departure at least. Ralph, why is this one grounded?
