I was very pleasantly surprised with the overall experience. Past few years I have only been using Emirates. But as the tickets are getting pricey, wanted to try out other options. KLM offered the best price and connectivity options.
The planes were not new but clean and decent. Food was good and very good. I was surprised with the great service. Previously had bad experience with European carriers but not so with KLM.
The Schipol airport was great as well. Very helpful staff, clean and neat.
Will now keep flying KLM for this sector.
