Curaçao is a favourite destination among KLM crews. That’s no surprise. There’s sun and sea, and a lovely holiday feeling everywhere. That’s especially the case on Fuikdag — the best unorganised boat party in the Caribbean. Fishnet Bay I had requested this trip so I could visit a friend who lives on the island. He… read more »

The Obsessive Network Planner (ONP) has struck again. A couple of weeks back I made the surprising discovery that KLM serves a disproportionate number of destinations starting with the letters K, L and M. Earlier this year, KLM began operating flights to Luanda and Lusaka. Before that, it was Linköping and Lima, and I recently… read more »
