KLM is adding three-weekly service from Amsterdam Schipol (AMS) to Boston Logan (BOS) beginning March 31, 2019. The new service will operate in addition to twice daily service from joint venture partner Delta Air Lines. KLM plans to operate Airbus A330-300 aircraft with 30 seats in World Business Class, 40 seats in Economy Comfort, and 222 seats in economy.
The route will operate on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.
Fourth weekly flight begins July 2019
Starting July 1, 2019, KLM will add a fourth weekly flight to Boston (BOS) on Mondays. The carrier did not announce if that’s a seasonal or permanent schedule addition.
KLM A330-300 World Business Class
KLM’s A330 fleet is the last to receive retrofits with the carrier’s new World Business Class. Some of KLM’s A330s still have angled seats – reclining to 175 degrees – but retrofits are scheduled for completion by November 2018.
Assuming all goes according to plan, KLM’s A330 fleet will have flatbed seats for the Boston route launch, albeit in a 2 x 2 x 2 configuration. KLM is installing a decade-old seat, very similar to the seats on United’s ex-Continental planes (757-200s, 767-400s, and 777-200s), Dreamliners, and select two-class 767-300s.
At least KLM opted for some visual enhancements for an otherwise very generic seat.
Welcome to Boston, KLM!
