As a fellow flying dutchman it would be rude not to join this event!

(Had to cancel flight CZ307, otherwise I wouldn’t be able to make it for KL810)

For the event I’ll be doing CGK-KUL-AMS (KL810).
See y’all there!

I’m more than proud and grateful to be your pilot and to fly for AFKLM. A big thank you from me to all of you guys for giving me this possibility to call myself AFKLM263. At 18:00Z I will have to go to work but I will most definitely do a flight in or out of EHAM anytime earlier on that day. May I ask, if I fly in or out EHAM before 18:00Z, will that still be counted as a participation ? I’m actually not referring to the multiplier and I don’t mind about claiming or losing the multiplier, I just want to make sure that I will get to catch up with you guys and meet up with fellow AFKLM pilots on this special day.

Cheers and best regards, Michael

I plan on doing Amsterdam - Dubai in the Transavia B737-800 as HV6901 (this is an IRL flight - much to my surprise). I will be departing around 1700Z as I need to land in Dubai before I go to bed.

Its also my birthday on the 10th, however I’ll be at university most of the day (but its doing coding, which I love).

I’ll be happy to join this event in Amsterdam Shipol! I am planning to fly with Air France from Paris Charles de Gaulle LFPG, which is another important hub for AFKLM VA. It has been a year and a week since I started my service at AFKLM, and I have cherished every moment of it. I hope this event turns out to be a memorable experience for everyone!
