KLM Business Class

July 2013 is not that far away.  KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has targeted that timescale for the introduction of a totally new World Business Class cabin.  KLM’s Boeing 747-400 fleet, consisting of 22 aircraft, will be remodelled first.  Work on the airline’s 15 Boeing 777-200s will follow.
A major feature of the cabin will be full-flat seats.  Also featured will be new carpeting, panel decorations, curtains, lighting, blankets, cushions and upholstery.

The seat position in the cabin and the partition between television screens ensure greater privacy for passengers.  Storage compartments, always a problem, are offered beside the passengers and under the television screens. 

The number of seats in World Business Class will be reduced from 42 to 35 aboard the Boeing 747-400. KLM has chosen the Diamond Seat manufactured by B/E Aerospace.  BTN hopes to report “Flying at the Front End” on the new product at a later date. www.klm.com
