KLM 787 business class bottom line:
I’m a bit conflicted on KLM’s 787 business class.
On the plus side, the seats and entertainment were great, and the crew was exceptionally warm and friendly. They really wanted to build a connection with each passenger. On top of that, I love KLM’s uniqueness, ranging from their Dutch houses you can take home, to their Dutch house chocolates, to their Dutch house wallpaper in the lavatories.
I’m pretty neutral about their bedding and amenities, and also about their wifi based on the pricing. As they switch to no longer having a data cap, I’m much more a fan of it.
But at the same time, I was disappointed by the food — which was alright at best — and the pace of service. I’m in no rush but, having just over two hours between meals to rest really isn’t ideal, especially after coming off a redeye and then having a long layover.
