Has anyone recently flown on the KLM service from Amsterdam to Bonaire recently. We are due to fly out at the end of October and would appreciate any reports.

Flew in August and the planes in and out were early! However, there are no 'spare' planes around here so always pack enough for an 'overnighter' BOTH coming and going. If a plane develops a fault it takes a while to fix. However it hardly ever happens.

The films are usually child friendly, the cartoon Robots was on last time. If you join the frequent Fliers programme, you can do this on line, you can ring KLM and reserve seats. Look at the seat plans on their website, you will be flying an MD11. Choose the bulkhead seats if you can. However Bob is 6'3" and does not find it too bad if we put the armrests up between us. If you are diving you can also ask for an extra allowance for dove gear. However make sure that you do it well in advance and tell them you are packing any gear with your normal luggage or they will charge you. If they try, tell them they are wrong. It is really worth joining the flyer programme just for the extra luggage. They are VERY hot on charging for excess baggage!

I have found the KLM food excellent. Also the service on board. Many of the cabin attendants who fly that route are divers, and I dive with them on Bonaire now and then. Great folks!
