To illustrate the issue re flying blue redemption awards I just tried to book a business class return from Edinburgh to Boston in September but there currently seems to be a problem getting quotes on an iPad. Maybe it’s just my iPad. When you say 95% availability, do you include the “flex” fares which let’s face it aren’t exactly great value for points.
Which restaurants at Schiphol are nicer than Gordon Ramsay at T5?
I also like a walk between flights but for some people it’s a problem.
I like KLM and remember one year flying over 200 sectors with the airline or its then partners. I also like Schiphol and think it’s a great airport but I still don’t think that every aspect of the KLM experience is as good as you say. That said, if they bring back the sausage rolls in the lounge I may change my mind and agree with you… These are only my views and not meant to offend you or anyone else in any way.
