My choices to get to Sweden on Skyteam are somewhat limited. From Paris I have the choice of an Air France all coach regional partner or via KLM from Amsterdam and they have a pseudo-business class section. Of those two less than stellar choices I tend to pick KLM. Plus, the choice of AMS airport over CDG airport is a no brainer!
The page where Delta.com “clearly” describes the bag rules is amazing. You almost need a slide rule to follow it all. However, the one plus side is that the class of service is a standard when it comes to bag rules and fees. Not so much with KLM as you can see above.
KLM many times offers upgrades for sale either via online or at the airport check-in. But notice if you do this, you are still bound by your original baggage allowance. I am sure there have been several shocked faces of flyers who, after they have just paid for the upgrade, are then asked for another fee for an extra bag.
I also, in last Wednesday’s rookie post, talked about linking reservations. We need to know that when it comes to the Skyteam family the rules are truly dizzying and you need to be aware of each partner’s little quirks when it comes time to fly! – René
