KLM Business Class – A Taste of the Netherlands
KLM business class offers a few unique touches that set it apart from other airlines. These include an IFE screen and KLM noise-canceling headphones.
Guests also get beautiful blue and white amenity kits designed in collaboration with Rituals Cosmetics and Rijksmuseum. The kits contain a toothbrush made of bamboo and Happy Tabs toothpaste, among other items.
KLM business class seats offer a comfortable, relaxing ride to your destination. They feature a full-flat bed that reclines to a near 180 degrees, as well as a foot rest and other amenities.
The seat is available on both the airline’s long-haul (KLM World Business Class) and short-haul (Europe Select Business Class) flights. The seats in both cabins come with a 10.4-inch TV, audio video on demand, email/text messaging to customers on the ground, privacy canopy, massaging seats and ports for charging your laptop.
KLM has a wide range of aircraft in its fleet and all have different seating configurations. The 777 and A330-200 have a 2-2-2 layout, the 737-700 has a 3-3 layout, and the Boeing 787-10 has a 1-2-1 layout with reverse herringbone seats.
A Taste of the Netherlands
When you fly KLM in business class, you can experience a taste of the Netherlands. Throughout your flight, you’ll be served meals that are curated by Dutch chef Jonnie Boer from De Librije.
Several of these dishes feature traditional Dutch products like Drenthe Heath Sheep, Brabant Bellefleur Apple and Limburg Syrup, all of which are at risk of becoming extinct. Slow Food the Netherlands is celebrating this gastronomic heritage by introducing a book called ‘The Ark of Taste in the Netherlands’ which features recipes, interviews and essays about these precious foods.
Another delicious Dutch tradition is serving a single cookie with every cup of coffee. This is a result of the Dutch thrift culture, which encouraged people to save money.
KLM business class offers a plethora of amenities that elevate the traveling experience. Dedicated crew attention, premium beverage options, and excellent meals are all part of the experience.
In addition to these perks, KLM also provides passengers with amenity kits that feature the Rituals Amsterdam Collection lip balm and moisturizer. These products come with scents of Dutch tulip and Japanese yuzu for a soothing and fresh experience.
The amenity kit comes in a small bag and is available on transcontinental flights. It includes socks, an eye mask with the airline branding, a toothbrush and toothpaste, earplugs, personal care items and more.
On international flights, passengers get a larger amenity kit with socks, an eye mask, mouthwash, headset covers, a toothbrush and toothpaste, earplugs, pen, tissues, and personal care items. In first class, passengers also get upgraded pajamas and cotton terry slippers.
Delft Blue Houses
Delft Blue, a style of Dutch pottery, is often associated with tulip-lined vases and tiling, but KLM has used this style of porcelain to create an unexpected novelty: miniature houses based on historic buildings in the Netherlands. These houses are presented to business class passengers on all international flights, and have become collector’s items worldwide.
Since 1952, passengers have been gifted these three-inch-tall ceramic houses, which portray a real-life Dutch building or house. The gift has become so popular that KLM even created a cult following amongst collectors and offers a free app for passengers to keep track of their houses.
Currently, there are 98 houses in circulation, though some are unnumbered and rare. Every year on October 7th, KLM presents a new house, which is based on real houses in the Netherlands.
