When we moved to Amsterdam for my work I started to fly KLM often. Given my position I travel a lot and got up to Platinum quickly. KLM is the WORST frequent flier program in the industry. No upgrades whatsoever, no relief on change fees, no difference from silver or gold when boarding. Your loyalty to this airline is absolutely...

The airline was fine, and certainly good value for money because they have to compete with the discount operators. But total thumbs down for their Basel check-in facilities. Shared with Air France, only 2 self-serve terminals, and long waits for the desks to open. Crowded because everyone is waiting for the desks to open and bags and trolleys everywhere. A...

I have never sat in a seat that before someone push there seat back my knees were already turn to the side. The leg room is so short that you have to have your feet on your toes and for a twelve and a half hour flight you can hardly walk afterwards. Lovely cabin crew but pay the extra £100...

I connected in Amsterdam to Dublin after a 13+ hour flight from Buenos Aires. I had very low expectations for this short early morning flight. I was pleasantly surprised to be proved wrong. The crew was professionally friendly and helpful and passengers were provided with free refreshments. One of my highlights, as any traveller's, was to find that my bag,...

This flight was my first to travel with KLM. I had heard about its good service and was happy to confirm this. The legroom in Economy was just enough for me, but the rest of the on-board service and catering were definitely outstanding for this class. The crew was very kind and helpful, constantly keeping passengers hydrated (which is crucial...

We travelled from Budapest to Denpasar (through Amsterdam, and Singapur) with KLM in June 2018. Seat are okay and in good condition, leg room is okay too, we were able to sleep during the night. The entertainment functioned well, and they have a pretty big variety of movies, tv shows, music, games ect. The food was actually pretty good. Staff...

KLM is powered by Delta so I expected the same customer service. Initially things were ok, until they started running out of menu options, leaving only a cheesy egg type of breakfast that I did not want. I wasn't given any other options, the crew was the least bit accommodating. I was offered some cookies and crackers instead of the...
