In August of this year KLM have introduced a 1.8% surcharge on the booking of their flights. So the more you have to pay for your flight the more incremental profit they make. They also introduced a booking fee for seats. Not ones with extra leg room etc. Simply a seat. The price from Durham to Schiphol - £8.60. Schiphol...

Whenever I get KLM I know I am in safe hands, being one of the best flight companies in Europe. Really happy with everything about KLM. Multiple ways of getting your flight ticket. We also got some free food on the flight. Service is great too. I hope they keep it up.

I highly recommend the KLM Royal Dutch Airlines. What excellent, royal service from check-in, to boarding the flight and during the flight. The airline staff was just so professional, polite, respectful and always kind and caring. The food was fantastic - well prepared and well served! When I traveled on KLM from Panama City to Amsterdam (return flight), one of...

As far as one can 'enjoy' a 10-hour flight in economy class KLM flights are the ones to pick. The staff is always really friendly and the planes entertainment system is really good. Besides that I like the fact I can speak Dutch to the cabin crew.

Just great! I wasn't expecting such amazing service nor clean and comfortable planes but the Dutch have wowed me. It was the best internal flight I have ever taken so far. The seats were great although I didn't choose the extra leg space option, I love how you can choose whether to pay for additional bags or if you re...

Our options for flying to Dordogne are fairly limited and the best option price and schedule wise was with KLM that involved a stopover in Amsterdam. The seats had been changed at check in and the indifferent klm check in staff, grubby blouse, ill fitting uniform advised that it could only be sorted at Schiphol. Part from that top quality...

Nice comfortable ride. But I still don't understand the European company's thinking for using the same 3 seat configuration as economy class. What makes the seats Biz class is they block the middle seat giving an empty seat between passengers. No extra legroom or seat width. A meal was served for the 1.5 hour flight. The attendants were attentive and...
