KLM Royal Dutch Airlines

KLM - Amsterdam to Vancouver


We did our first long-duration flight since 2019 in style, flying business class with KLM from Amsterdam to our new country to explore Canada.


The KLM lounge in Amsterdam was a great design, modern, very spacious and ample seating with a beautiful sky lounge including outdoor seating.

We had such excellent service; the cabin team are impressive, with plenty of smiles, laughter and great conversations about our five-year journey around the world.


Welcomed with champagne, and then the meals were served course by course, and we both savoured the flavours. The presentation was perfect, and we were very impressed with the quality. The selection of wines perfectly matched the food.

Sitting back and enjoying a glass of champagne or bloody mary served in beautiful crystal glasses was so lovely. The entertainment selection was excellent too.

We had the middle row, which gave both of us easy aisle access, and this was perfect as it allowed us easy access for restroom stops while having those cheeky naps.


Our first time flying Business Class with KLM, and we definitely recommend this airline. Thank you, KLM, for the surprise 'Dutch homes' gifts as a souvenir for flying with you; they have been a great addition to our suite in our three-month cruise from Pole to Pole.
