Yeah, there was a lot of construction/renovation work taking place when I had a layover there as well a couple of months ago, which affected the number of seating areas, and made the layout sort of confusing.

After Emirates' A380 to Dubai, China Southern will fly from June 20 to Beijing with the A380, upgrading from the much smaller A330-300.

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol international airport serving the Netherlands, Europe.

Difficult day at Schiphol today due to the strong wind, some flights were cancelled.

B777 coming from Osaka landing at around 3.30 PM

That is a scary landing, maybe the most scary I've seen of a 777.

By the way, I though KLM is no longer using the KLM Asia subbrand.

KLM always kept the titles on some of their 747s, that was probably more marketing then necessity.

But they started to use the company KLM Asia again a couple of years ago when they started direct flights to Taipei. Before they needed the company to fly to Taipei, not matter what route they took. Now it has to do with overflight rights to pass Mainland China's airspace with these flights. It's still an issue, no other non Taiwanese or Chinese airline pass mainland China's airspace on their flights to Taipei. Even China Airlines and EVA use a stop in Thailand on their flights to Amsterdam.

Considering that PRC Carriers are flying to Taiwan themselves, what does Beijing have an issue with now (I mean few nations recognise the ROC anyway)?

Often KLM Asia includes a Asian crew. But recently KLM stopped to hire new Asian stewardesses.

Don't ask me, ask the Chinese government. Apparently it's still an issue, otherwise KLM wouldn't be doing it and we probably would still see Lufthansa, BA, etc. also fly to Taipei which they don't now. The only other European carrier to Taipei is Turkish Airlines, they started recently, or will very soon, but they don't have to do a large detour if they want to avoid mainland Chinese airspace.


The "regular" KLM, like many European carrier also use Asian stewardesses or stewards for their Asian flights. That's nothing specific for KLM Asia. This plane that made the hard landing came from Osaka anyway, even with the titles it was still operated by the regular KLM, with some Japanese staff on board.

There is however Emirates, who fly to Taipei from the West. Now unless they are avoiding flying though Mainland China themselves they fly there using planes which have the UAE flag despite one of the objections Beijing supposedly had was the use of "national symbols and colours" of planes flying into Taiwan. So if the PRC has not demanded Emirates remove the flag off their planes to Taipei I do wonder about the rule in itself.

That was wild, almost came close to the Lufthansa wingstrike in Hamburg a few years ago.

I never thought I could have such a bad impression of AMS!

Last week I took a flight to Sao Paulo from Amsterdam with KLM. The access to Non-Schengen flights was a complete mess! Hundreds of passengers waiting to go through passport control desks without any organization from the airport staff. In Paris CDG, for example, passengers of Air France / KLM who have Sky Priority access have an exclusive lane for that. In many other international airports there are also dedicated lanes for diplomatic passports, crew and passengers with special needs.

Really disappointed with AMS. Not really what people expect from one of the most famous and prize-winning airports in the world.

I second that.
Passing through AMS back in early October coming back to Belgium via KLM's new Edmonton flight and what a mess. It was hectic and I was stressed. I never get stressed at airports. Connecting to the Schengen terminal had a massive line up. Every flight was delayed. The delayed flights had to have gate changes. Having announcements about gate changes non-stop. I had a connection of 3 hours and my ears were tired and confused. I can not say anything positive over my connection at AMS.
