KLM reveals B787-9 products

28 Jul 2015 by Clement Huang

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has revealed the cabin products of its soon-to-be delivered B787-9 aircraft.

The Skyteam member currently has 23 Dreamliners on order and is expected to take delivery of two of them by the end of the year. It has outfitted the aircraft with a two-class configuration, comprising 30 seats in business and 264 in economy.

For business class, KLM has chosen the Zodiac Cirrus seat, the same as Cathay Pacific and American Airlines. Dubbed the “World Business Class”, the Zodiac Cirrus allows for direct access to the aisles, and is capable of reclining into a fully flat position. It features an average seat pitch of 42 inches.

Additionally, each seat includes a 16-inch main IFE screen and supports the option of a dual-screen experience, in which customers can view media on the handset.

The economy class cabin has been separated into two zones – Economy Comfort and standard economy class. The former, located just behind the business class section, offers expanded seats pitch of 35-inch, instead of 31-inch.


All seats in economy (both Economy Comfort and Economy Class) are able to recline 40 per cent further than KLM’s existing coach product. They also come with larger 11-inch IFE screens, which are touch enabled, and provide access to more than 150 films and 200 TV programmes in 12 languages.
