    I bought one of the really low fares to europe so will be experiencing coach on KLM for my first flight with the carrier. Just wondering if pillows and blankets are provided in the back. Pretty sure I will be late boarding based on seat preference, so if they normally run short I would expect to be without so would go prepared.
    Thanks

    Yes, at least I have always had pillows and blankets. If I remember correct they are placed in your seat.

    Indeed. The pillow is quite small, but better than nothing!

    And the blanket is quite thin... :) (I always bring my own wool-scarf because it's always so freezing cold in the cabin.)

    Good to hear nothing has changed. The last few years I sat in front, but this year I have to go in the back TATL at least one time (return), while I travel with a group which is going to help a few local foundations.

    As noted, they did provide a pillow and blanket for the trip. The blanket was almost see through, it was so light, but did provide bede warmth along with my winter coast and a pair of gloves. As mentioned above, the cabin was freezing once we took off. There was no seating space, and a long as you and your seat mates don't move much during the flight was okay for a coach flight. The babies, and there were quite a few, slept well on the outbound and I wil hope for the same on the return.

    I always bring my own pillow and blanket, unless I'm flying BE on DL (I like their duvets. Any other carrier, I bring my own).
