AMS to Cape Town

Wifey and I are heading to Cape Town in Jan '06. Booked in WBC, and the equipment showing is 777. Will they upgrade the equipment to 747 since it is high season. I really don't like the 777. How is the service on that haul? We have quite a trip? Also, any preferences out there on hotels on the water? Thanks in advance.

Not very likely. KL only operates five full-pax 744s and these are kept rather busy.

You are not the only one!

No different than on any other KL longhaul flight. The cabin in general and especially the seats are the problem.
