Thanks. Those are the seats I want to avoid direct sunlight!

If there's sun, there's a blind, if there's no sun, there's no window.

Can anyone help, I booked a flight on KL617 AMS>DTW on A330. What I don't understand is all the websites when you go to seat selection are not showing row 10. Anyone know is there a row 10 in the center or not? The seat selection map looks very different than Seatguru or KLM's website maps. Thanks.

How many of the B744s now have the refurbished WBC cabins with new seats? I'm flying AMS-ORD on 10/17.

I remember to have read very recently that they have finished that program and that WBC cabins in all B744's were refurbished by now. I will see on 10/23 when flying AMS-KUL.

Having never flown Y on KLM's B772 I was wondering if someone could tell me which seats are blocked out for Seat Choice? I got put in 21C now, so I'd like to get a seat with a little bit more legroom

Thanks!

Program Guide



Comments & Advice


The armrest PTV on the rows 9, 10, 30 and 50 are exactly the same size as in other rows unlike stated on SeatGuru.

Just flew with KLM on airliners PH-BVA, a 777-300ER their route JRO-DAR-AMS.

Row 9 A, B only has one window and a long blind claustrophobic wall with really great legroom. No toilets there unlike the KL 772. http://myaviation.net/?pid=01488363

Row 10J, K has more limited legroom but two windows on the side.

Seats 10 B and 10J are wider seats on the shoulder padding. Seats 9AB, 10AB and 10JK have wider seats.

Seat 11C and 11H have a much restricted legroom as the anchor is in the middle of the legroom.

Exit rows 30 and 50 are crowded with queues to the loo. Row 30 has a flat exit door whereas row 50 has the protuberant version.

Seats 59ABJK have a great side space as aisle is large but these seats are not facing their screens (it looks weird).

I really enjoy the pair 10HJ : perfect for a couple or if next seats is empty, feels private with next passenger almost 2m apart and two full windows.

Legroom is a bit more restricted than 11CG but I usually do not behave and put my feet on the wall...

Next is 10AB, same but a bit near the loo and the drinking fountain (foot traffic, noise).

Thank you very much for you answer!

As I really needed ASAP a precise inventory of the KLM long-haul fleet, and as I got no answer here, I used another method. I just had a look at the aircraft types and registrations mentioned in the comments of AirLiners.com pictures (747-406 vs 747-406M).

And your post, perfectly confirms what I've found ^
Cool. Thanks!

Should you require even more information, try planespotters.net, airfleets.net or plane-list.com.

Im experiencing the same problem for my IAD-AMS flight. I cant see row 10 on the seat map, and when I called, the NW/KL agent said that row 11 IS the bulkhead. I requested bulkhead window, but according to seatguru, she gave me the second row of Y window (and there is no window in that row!!)...can anyone comment on 11J?...are there not any bulkheads with both open space and windows properly aligned with the seat on this aircraft?
