Technically your post should have been called Martinair Cargo @ MAA.

KLM Cargo only uses passenger flights to transport cargo, their own 747-400ERF's are all leased to Martinair Cargo (that is 100% owned by KLM).

Air France KLM announces the order of 110 Airbus A350 and Boeing 787 aircraft

[IMG]http://i52.************/20s9cw6.jpg[/IMG]
KLM B787-9

The Air France KLM Board of Directors, which met on 15 September, approved the Group’s order of 110 long-haul
aircraft (50 firm orders and 60 options), still subject to the finalization of discussions with the manufacturers.
This first joint long-haul order by Air France and KLM will be replacing in the medium term the aircraft with 200 / 350
seats currently present in the fleet and support the Group's growing operations.
The acquisitions are scaled to a size that can be financed through cash flow generated from Group operations.
Consistent with the provisional fleet plan, this order will result in the Group's operation of 73 next generation aircraft
through 2024: 43 Airbus A350-900 and 30 Boeing 787-9. The first aircraft Boeing 787-9 order will enter into service
with KLM in 2016 and the first Airbus A350-900 with Air France in 2018. Later, both airlines will operate both types
of aircraft.
The selection of engines for the Boeing 787-9 will be made later. The Airbus A350-900 will be equipped with Rolls-
Royce Trent XWB engines, the only engine provided for this aircraft by the manufacturer.
These new aircraft will reduce fuel consumption by over 15% and will give rise to a significant reduction in noise and
gas emissions, confirming the Group's commitments in terms of environment and sustainable development. Air
France KLM is a member of the Dow Jones Sustainability Index since 2004 and also leader of the “Transport and
leisure” sector.
Within the framework of this order, Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance, the Group’s aircraft
maintenance department, is confirming its commitment to position itself as a key market player for the maintenance
of these aircraft and their engines.
Following this approval, memoranda of understanding will be signed with Airbus, Boeing and Rolls Royce and the
finalized contracts are expected before the end of the year.
“For its first joint order, the Air France KLM group made its selection after a detailed assessment showing all the
performance characteristics of each aircraft, including their energy and environmental performance” declared
Pierre-Henri Gourgeon, CEO of Air France KLM. Peter Hartman, president & CEO of KLM added: “Their integration
into the fleet will enable the Group to continue to operate one of the youngest and most modern fleets in the world”.

A350XWB continues to attract world class airlines.
The Air France-KLM Group has announced its intention to sign for up to 60 A350 XWB aircraft, of which 25 A350-900 will be firmed up shortly. The aircraft will become an essential pillar in the group’s long-haul fleet modernization strategy.

"We are honoured that our all new, extra efficient A350 XWB will contribute to Air France-KLM’s long-term success", said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer - Customers. "The A350 XWB's unbeatable economics and environmental credentials will establish the aircraft as the future backbone of the airline's long-haul fleet. We take this decision as a testimony of confidence in our brand and products".

The A350 XWB (Xtra Wide-Body) Family is an all-new long range product line comprising three models capable of flying between 270 and 350 passengers in typical three-class layouts on flights of up to 8,500 nautical miles.

In total the Air France-KLM Group currently operates a fleet of 191 Airbus aircraft, comprising six A380s, 26 A330s, 15 A340s, 24 A321s, 58 A320s, 44 A319s and 18 A318s. With this new order Air France-KLM joins the expanding group of airlines to have a member of each Airbus aircraft family in their fleet.

By end of August, Airbus has recorded 567 A350 XWBs firm orders from 35 customers.

KLM to adopt fully flat beds in business class

Dutch airline KLM is poised to join the flat bed club. Starting in May 2013 it will begin installing proper flat bed seats across its long-haul fleet which will replace the current angled lie-flat versions.

According to respected Dutch travel website zakenreis.nl the development has been confirmed by KLM's managing director Erik Varwijk. It will take 2.5 years to retrofit KLM's fleet with the new seating.

KLM's B747s will be the first to have them fitted followed by its B777s and, finally, the Airbuses. Details of the various configurations are not yet available. The new seats will be fitted with traditional IFE screens.

But interestingly, KLM's Erik Varwijk reckons that the future for IFE lies in portable tablets. Zakenreis.nl quotes him as saying, "Tablets not only offer better quality and more opportunties [for IFE] but they are less likely to crash than the current IFE systems. Moreover, tablets are lighter which saves on fuel costs."

It is believed that KLM has selected the Diamond seat from BEAerospace. These are similar to the new product being installed by Continental Airlines.

KLM's joint partner Air France, which currently offers angled seating in business class, has yet to announce what version, if any, it will adopt in the future.

The news will be wecomed by the tens of thousands of UK-based business people who patronise KLM for their long-haul flights via Amsterdam both from London and a large number of regional airports.
