I booked my flight almost 6 months in advance when I stumbled upon a great deal for a business class flight. Having flown with many different airlines to Asia, and never with KLM, I didn't start reading reviews until after I had booked the flight. I found many reviews that lead me to believe that I had made a big...

We decided to splurge on last minute business class tickets for our 11 hour flight to Panama City (huge discount). Great seat, great bed, great food and great service!

If I had a choice I would not take this route. My company does all my travel arrangements so I don't have a choice. You leave Dammam and land in Kuwait about 49 minutes later and then sit there for about an hour before taking back off. There are better routes offered from other companies. The airplane is not nearly...

I generally use KLM when travelling to/from Europe.The flights are usually punctual ,staff are always helpful and journey time is only about 10.5 hours. Unfortunately ,my flight to Amsterdam this month fell well short of expectations. The departure was delayed for over an hour,due to a lack of water pressure and consequently no hot water on board for flushing toilets,handwashing...

Early morning flight from Newcastle to Amsterdam and then onto Prague. First flight was cramped and uncomfortable. A sandwich and a drink were handed out. A very nice touch was the pilot addressing the passengers from the front of the cabin and then standing on the airbridge when we arrived. Second flight much better as we had a spare seat...

Just an average flight. Nothing spectacular about the airplane, comfort, or the staff. Got me to where I needed to go without any thrills.

Although I had paid a premium to choose a seat with more leg room ( R2200) -the seats are narrow made for Size 0 and so hard and uncomfortable! The Boing 7777 is NOT user- friendly at all. Aisles too narrow and seats just shoved in with not enough toilets. The Air France Airbus a much better option- sorry KLM-...

Standard flight really, no complaints about the staff, they were perfectly friendly. Not a whole lot of leg room, but it was a shorter flight.
