I just stepped off my first ever KLM flight and found it to be a great overall experience.
The full SFO-AMS flight review will be published next week, but for now some initial impressions:
- KLM’s 787-9 Dreamliner features comfortable reverse herringbone seats
- Food exceeded expectations, particularly the “beef stew” main course
- Onboard Internet is ghastly expensive and functioned poorly
- Crew was efficient and kind
- I love the little blue Delft Blue houses that are presented to each passenger, filled with Dutch gin
- Sleeping on a 2pm departure is nearly impossible for me, even with a great business class seat and 10hr flight

Compared to business class seats on the 747, 777, and A330, some of which are not even lie-flat, the 787-9 reverse herringbone has the best business class seat in the KLM fleet. Furthermore, onboard internet service on KLM is only available on the Dreamliner.
Stay tuned for the full KLM 787 Business Class report next week!
That beef stew looks absolutely incredible.
Wow… looks very nice, both food and seats. I had no idea KLM could be this nice since I had previously read reviews that were not that great.
We’ll be doing the KLM dreamliner business class from Calgary to Nice in September on the 787. Our return from Barcelona to Calgary is on the A330-300, also in business class. Looking forward to it.
