LOS ANGELES to AMSTERDAM
I know you’ve probably seen a bunch of KLM 747 photos Already today, I’ve already seen @AExones and @Anshul28 (You can see Aexones’ here and Anshuls here ) But anyway, KLM was originally going to retire their 747s in 2021, but due to the whole Coronavirus situation, they are now retiring them by the end of April. They fly them from Amsterdam to a couple of United States cities and on some beautiful routes to the Caribbean. Most notably, KLM flew their 747s to St Marteen in the Caribbean and over the Maho Beach approach, but they no longer fly the queen on that route. KLM still flies their 747s from Los Angeles and I decided to fly it Amsterdam as an overnighter. I landed in Salt Lake City from Atlanta (you’ll see that in a couple days) around 9:45 PM Eastern Time, and quickly spawned in at Los Angeles to start this flight before the sun set on the West Coast. I obviously used the KLM 747 and flight time was 9 hours and 43 minutes.
