So many of us just stop and look when we see a 747. They are part of our childhood and amazing to fly. I am such a 747 AVgeek that I planned my 1 million mile flight on a Delta 747. Delta, unfortunately, will soon park their fleet of these amazing jets for good and now KLM will follow as well.
“In the years ahead, even KLM will be saying good-bye to the “Grand Old Lady” of the fleet, the Boeing 747-400.”
“If you happen to fly KLM in the near future in a KLM 747, remember this: you’re making airline history.”
The good news is we still have some time it seems to get to fly them a few more times as to me “In the years ahead” does not mean right away. Plus, don’t forget KLM has updated their 747s to their new full flat seat that I am still waiting to experience myself. While not every seat has individual aisle access like Delta it looks amazing and KLM service has always been very very good.
First Delta, then Air France and now KLM. Gosh, it will be a sad day when you can no longer find a Skyteam 747 up in the air. Korean Air still has them but I bet, like all the others, they will soon follow suit and park these majestic birds. Sigh. – Rene
