Hi all,

Below is another one of my retor FR from August 2007. I was going to Tehran with KLM from Toronto via Amsterdam.

I did not realize that I had my camera set to small pictures and when I got to Iran, I noticed it but all my pics were saved small on the memory but for the return segment they are better. Plus back in days I did not know how to write trip reports so I just took random pix and missed taking pix from meals etc but you can see my improvement by looking at my other FRs lol :D

Hope you enjoy :)

At YYZ

The sunquest discontinued their operations long time ago and they are not around anymore

Our plane to Tehran- KLM A330- Back then these A330s had been recently added to KLM fleet and were very new kind of like Boeing 787s these days. After 747-400, I love A330 the most along all aircrafts :)

Conclusion

Great flights with KLM with great flight crews. Back then A330 was new for KLM and I really liked the interior and the seat was very comfy with a nice IFE. The flight from Toronto had an older cabin with no IFE.

    Thank you for sharing this old report. It's good to have a point of reference, doesn't it?

    Did KL provide printed menus with a description of their inflight service in Y back then? I know they did during the mid 1990's. You can tell that the crew was in good spirits and it's no surprise that you had great service. KL is a legacy carrier that was known for quality service and AMS has a special place in my heart.

      Thanks so much Jetsetpanda. Unfortunately I don't remember if they had a printed menu back then but indeed the service was great and AMS is the best airport I have ever been to. I rated it wrong at the end of my FR and just adjusted it :)
