I only have 45' of transit time but Amsterdam is quiet this morning and well organized, at list when you transit from Schengen to Schengen ;)

I am only a bit worried about my suitcase as in CDG, with 45' transit time, it is pretty clear that your luggage won't follow you. It happened to me twice this year, once with a 01H layover and once with 02H)

I arrive at the gate 5' before boarding that is launched on time and priorities are clearly announced. From the bus I can spot an A330 and a B747 taking off:

As we arrive at our plane, I see that the one that took me here is just next to it, giving me a bit more hope about my suitcase following me :)

Today's Fokker:



Very cold welcome from the purser, I head to my seat, 05A. Here's the cabin:

Safety card and the pitch:



On time push back but not before two KLM staffs have been upgraded from Y to J. I don't mind about upgrading staffs, but not in the view of the whole cabin.

At takeoff, we roll over the cargo area with some 74F and the MD11, that's my favorite plane!!



Climbing:

Cruise time was exactly 4 minutes, total flight time was actually 21 minutes, just enough time for the crew to throw (I use that verb because it was how they did the service!) this water can and the cookie. While I am impressed that a service can be performed in such a short amount of time, how it was delivered did not impress me at all.

Turkish water but no Dutch winglet:

And some final pictures:



On time landing, almost nonexistent farewell from the purser, but the co-pilot stands at the cockpit door and greats each passengers. Well done young man :)

And my suitcase arrived!
