Flight Number: KL1033
Flight duration: 1h 20m
Class: Economy Class
Aircraft type: Boeing 737-800
Punctuality of the flight:
The flight departed on time and landed around 20 minutes late at Heathrow due to the (normal) heavy traffic waiting to land. Our plane circled over North London at least 5 times before finally making the turn to land.
Any baggage issues:
No issues- the bags arrived on time and in one piece.
Comments on the check-in staff and any issues:
No check in issues. I was transferring from a flight from Geneva at Amsterdam, so there were no problems. The wait was not too long.
Comments regarding the pre-meal service:
Just drinks, including wine. I choose “Solaris White Wine” and a miniature can of orangeade.
Comments regarding the first meal:
The food was the same as given on the Geneva to Amsterdam sector. I was on a connecting flight from Geneva to London. Normally I would take a non-stop flight for such a short sector, however I wanted to try what the service is like on KLM! The food consisted of a packet of the KLM Trademark “TUC” cheese miniature biscuits and a packet of “prine chocolate biscuits”.
Comments regarding the drinks service:
A second round of drinks were offered after the meal. Including “Solaris White Wine” and soft drinks.
Comments regarding the in-flight snacks (if any):
Comments regarding the second meal (if any):
Comments on the in-flight system (if any):
Comments on the professionalism of the cabin crew:
The cabin crew were very professional and polite. Just a normal flight, without any incidents.
Comments on the interior of the aircraft (including seat comfort):
The Boeing 737-800 is part of the Boeing family of aircraft, and is one of the smallest, as well as, most advanced versions of the type. The seat configuration is 3-3 in an all economy class layout. The interior design is based on the “Royal Dutch Blue” colour scheme.
Overall rating 1-10 (worst-best): 8
About Airline PR
This is a special section on Airline Branding, and Airline Public Relations written by me on all the flights I have been fortunate enough to have been on. These are not records taken from somewhere else, but are actual flights I have been on. Most of the flight trips are officially sponsored by the airline companies in order to promote their certain routes, and aircraft. Airline promotion and PR related work in the aviation industry is one of my expertise.
