Hi all,

This report is overdue from 2013 but I'm finding time to post it now. On my way back from Tehran I was flying with KLM. It's sad that they discontinued their service to Tehran in April 2013 but anyhow.

I did not take many pictures of Tehran airport as I have covered it in my previous trip report below and it has not changed much since even now:

Tehran to Dubai with Emirates:

This trip report is mostly from plane spotting at AMS.

As I love the color blue, so guess what? my most favorite airline is KLM as it is all blue. I have taken lots of pictures of KLM around AMS and I hope you enjoy them :)

The legroom was so comfortable in economy, so was the seat.

The flight was very smooth and as it was in middle of the night everyone was almost sleeping including me so I did not get to take any more pix :)

I got to Amsterdam around 7:30 and then I walked around till 10:30 and was back at Schiphol at 11:00

Entrance to the terrace- The rest of the pix are pretty self explanatory :)

The only downside was that all information boards and guides around the area and inside the sample KLM Fokker were all in Dutch and I could not understand anything.

KLM 747-400
Duration: 8:15 hours

I had booked my seat in Economy Comfort to compare the two. My seat indeed had extra leg room but economy was not that bad neither.

Ok, this is a very cool thing to know. This intersection is where all Toronto spotters come to take picture of planes landing in YYZ. The famous Petro-Canada station is just right underneath the plane and can't be seen but at the intersection in summer days you can see many people including me snapping pics of planes :)
