They are going to park the 330’s too...
and rumors in de Telegraaf are they might not ‘survive’ to serve KLM in the future..

so long haul could be 787/777 only in the future...

I got to see PH-BFL pass my window yesterday afternoon just before arrival from Mexico. I’m going to miss them.

If you go for 1A you won't have to carry your dinner, lunch, breakfast and all your drinks up those stairs..

Very sad

To see these being retired, some of the happiest flights of my business life, travelling on these. Always at the airport in good time to see the big blue bird arrive to take me home. Then upstairs to 77A (from memory) the emergency exit row upstairs.

Happier times than the current crisis for sure.

Paramaribo (PBM)?

Was googling around for flights as my vacation plans are in complete shambles at the moment and stumbled on AMS-PBM May 25-June 2 operating with a 747. Price isn't too shabby either for a non-stop flight @ € 1557.07 in business. But I assume, there'll be an aircraft change given the current situation.

Police and Marechaussee say they will do their level best to keep spotters away from Schiphol when the last 747 flight lands.
