Sigh… I booked the ticket a couple of days ago and selected see 1K. Today I went online and somehow I was moved to 77.

if someone on this thread is in 1K, lucky you!

Just for my information, how is it possible that an already reserved seat is taken by Meneer Guggenheimer afterwards?

I appreciate the notice, but it’s already been taken again.

According to this NHNieuws (a Dutch news website) the last KL 747 flight will be PBM-AMS, end of May 2021. The flight will be flown by chief 747 captain Mr. Paul van de Ven

I tried to post the url to the article but I’m not allowed to because of FlyerTalk forum rules.

In half unrelated news: saw two KLM 747's parked brotherly (sisterly?) next to each other on the Schiphol ramp by the side of the A4 highway. Nice sight.
