First flight with KLM since March 2020. Flying ATH-AMS-EDI today on the Boeing 737-800, PH-BCG a newer 737 with Boeing Sky Interior.
Boarding on schedule with Zone 1 and 2 first; pretty full flight considering current global circumstances. Excited to be boarding my first KLM flight since March this year.
View as we taxi to the runway…
Ready to depart, 20 minutes behind schedule.
Stunning views flying over the Aegean Sea heading towards Amsterdam.
Cabin service was limited (as expected) with only one drinks service through the cabin and a small cheese sandwich was served with a cookie and some water. Drinks were not available in the galley when I asked for a coffee later in the flight - a little disappointing on a 3hr 15min flight with COVID being cited as a reason why. Seems each airline policy is significantly different.
View from the back with the BSI. Again, a rather full flight.
USB ports at each seat, no wifi however unlike the outbound flight with AF on a much older A321. I can't see wifi being added to KLM 737s anytime soon.
Descending for Amsterdam.
Another KLM 747 stripped of its crown as I prepare to take my 747th flight (to EDI on a 737)…
As an added bonus, this was our Captain today.
Great flight with KLM, crew weren't of the usual overly friendly standard but understandably everyone is nervous during these times.
Service was limited due to this also.
Boeing Sky Interior makes a huge difference compared to the interior of the much older 737s. Added wifi would be a bonus in the far future.
