KLM 100 years 2019 11 07

As BA is celebrating their 100 year anniversary in August with special flights and special liveries, it is very quiet around the birthday of KLM later this year. Any one with inside knowledge?

What can we expect from KLM except Huisje (House) 100 which must be a special occasion too.

I think you made typo in title - it is on 7th October so should be 2019 10 07.

Shouldn't it actually be 07.10.2019?

Based on the 90th anniversary offers, I wouldn't expect too much.

The celebration will start 100 days before the 7th October. Then the logo will be revealed.

What anniversary?

Bit of a sham if you ask me.

You might be better advised to wait for the investiture of the next monarch and book a flight departing AMS on that date; if it's a special one-day-only huisje you have your eye on....

May book a seat London Amsterdam 17th May 2020. Exactly 100 years after the first KLM flight ever.

yes I know, it is sad that the rest of the Aviation world does not respect that KLM has reached the milestone truly first. (Avianca too.. but later this year!)

In the Holland Harold of this month (june 2019) there is an interview with someone who manages what we are given on board. Most of the interview is about that but in the interview it is mentioned that they also design the houses and that house 100 is going to be something very special!

FYI
