Welcome to another translation from french reports of flights to the US and Canada.

As almost usual my trip starts in BSL for a flight to AMS with KLM Cityhopper.

A F70, as scheduled:

Boarding was called on time and priorities are respected that will allow me to take some cabin shoots:



The seats are the slimline, non reclinable, hard as rock simili-leather seats. I hate them and will alwaws do :)

On time take-off and the breakfast snack is served by a lovely crew, smilling and attentive. A scrambled egg sandwich was served, I'll take some apple juice and a coffee to go with:



The snack was good, it was fresh and tasty. The coffee was very good and the juice … was juice ^^

Some inflight and take off shoots. I didn't know at that time that the F70 flaps could extent till 42°, quite impressive:

Conclusion

Another perfectly on time KL flight, with a nice crew. I hate this new cabin, even if very good looking it is a nightmare for any butt :)
Checks in MLH are always lacking staff in the morning, but it is a nice airport.
Transit in AMS was a nightmare as we were in the middle of the morning rush.

    Nice to read about your trip on the F70. That is one rare bird and I wish I can have the chance to fly on it someday despite its uncomfortable seats.

    Catering on KL looks much better than its sister AF.

    Thanks.
