Back in August I blogged about Dutch designer, Hella Jongerius’ plans for the new KLM seats.

Now the word is out and if you look HERE and HERE you will see some nice and high resolution photos of what is soon to be installed on KLM’s birds. Also, you can peak HERE about the design process and choice of colors and fabrics (I would have loved to have seen them go with leather like Delta does).

They will be “Full Flat” seats which is very good, but they will NOT have individual aisle access as Delta has chosen for all of it’s seat upgrades. It is unfortunate that KLM did not follow Delta’s lead in this area, but much of Skyteam is going their own way as of late.

All the upgrades are set to be completed by the end of 2014. On the plus side, by that time, both Delta and KLM should both have completed all the transatlantic birds and you will always enjoy full flat seats when you fly. What do you think? Like the new look? – René

  1. Definitely a bit disappointing that they opted not to go with direct aisle access, but nevertheless, this is a HUGE upgrade for KLM. I still think Alitalia offers the best long-haul business class with their Magnifica class across all of Skyteam though.

  2. Personally, my experience is that while leather may be nice for seating, it’s not the best choice for sleeping.
