    About time. Since DL is adding equivalent of Economy plus to TATL flights this summer, KL needs to up their game.

    It's taken too long, but then again I could say the same about LH...

    Good news for the regular KL flyers, I've myself eliminated all ST l/h travel and only use AF and KL for s/h in Europe when they're cheaper and as convenient as other alternatives.

    With all the changes, it sounds like DL and KL are moving back towards the days of NW/KL, whereas AF is moving into its own little corner .... could this be a play to reduce the influence of French trade unions? [​IMG]

    The JV airlines harmonizing to product offerings that are more in line with their other JV partners seems to now be more of a given than it was even in the days of NW/KL leading the way in that regard. It'll be interesting to see which pair/groups get there first.

    I agree, but the interesting part is that, from the looks of it, KL/DL seems to be the driving pair within the joint venture, whereas AF seems to be off on their own ....
