November 3, 2016 Aviation No Comments Email Email

KLM_RDA_2016_RGBBeginning November 7, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will welcome a new Boeing 787 Dreamliner on its JFK to AMS route, one of the airline’s busiest routes.  The aircraft will operate twice a week on Sundays and Mondays through January 22.

In addition to new seat designs for enhanced comfort in all cabins, customers can enjoy WiFi, larger windows that can be dimmed, higher cabin pressure and special LED-lighting to ensure passengers arrive more rested at their destinations. The Dreamliner also offers a quieter, more fuel-efficient and sustainable experience with a lessened impact on the environment.

The World Business Class cabin features a 1-2-1 seat configuration, allowing each passenger direct aisle access.  KLM continues its tradition of featuring innovative Dutch design to provide a unique look and atmosphere with cabin interiors by Hella Jongerius, tableware by Marcel Wanders, and an assortment of amenity kits for men and women by haute fashion designer, Jan Taminiau. Three Michelin-starred chef Jacob Jan Boerma designs the menu, which is complemented by a world class wine list.  Passengers in World Business Class will also have access to fresh espresso made upon request.

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner features 30 World Business Class seats, 48 Economy Comfort seats, and 216 Economy seats totaling 294.

This is the second KLM Dreamliner to service the U.S. market after the first debuted in San Francisco in May.
