KLM Fleet Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner Cabin Interior Class Configuration and Seats Layout

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner features a two class configuration with 30 flat bed World Business seats, 48 Economy Comfort seats, and 216 standard Economy Class seats.

The layout of this plane was interesting for a few reasons: Usually on long-haul aircraft, you’ll have two smaller premium cabins, but the entire business-class section on this one was in a single cabin — and it wasn’t very large.

Each seat had 42 inches of pitch, was 20.25 inches wide — with the armrest lowered, it was more like 25 inches — and reclined to a fully flat bed.

KLM’s business class cabin takes up the entire space between the first and second set of doors on the 787-9, and consists of a total of 30 seats.

KLM has reverse herringbone seats on these planes, so there are four seats in each row — one along each side of the fuselage, and then two in the middle.

As is the standard with these reverse herringbone seats, the TV flips out from the seat in front.

The footwell was a decent size.

In general it’s a little less spacious on the 787 than on the 777 with these types of seats, since the cabin isn’t quite as wide, and therefore the seats aren’t as angled.

The tray table also extended from the right side of the seat, and could be folded over in half.

USB and 110v outlets were located underneath the seat and to the right.

On the opposite side of the aisle was an armrest that could be raised or lowered, depending on whether you prefer the support for your arm, or prefer a wider sleeping surface.

Behind the last row of business class was one of the galleys, and beyond that were four rows of economy comfort, a total of 48 seats.

Like the other economy seats, these were arranged in a 3-3-3 pattern, but had 35 inches of pitch and were 17.5 inches wide.

By comparison, the regular economy seats were the same width but had just 31 inches of pitch — not much considering the Dutch are the tallest people in the world!

There are 216 regular economy seats.

All economy seats have 11-inch touch screen IFE systems and in-seat power plugs.

First 8 rows of seats offer 30 flat bed seats of business class that have 180 degrees recline.

All these seats are standard. Only the seats 1A, 1K and 2DG have such a disadvantage as close location of the galleys and lavatory in front the noise from which may be bothersome.

Behind the exit row 48 seats of economy comfort type are located.

Passengers of the seats of the 10th row will take advantage of extra space for their legs.

However, proximity of the galleys and lack of floor storage during takeoff and landing may cause discomfort.

Economy class may 216 passengers.

The seats of the economy class are located in two sections.

First section consists of 10 rows of seats.

Most of these seats have 3-3-3 configuration.

Location of the lavatories behind is the main disadvantage of the seats of the 25th row.

Second section of economy class seats consists of 15 rows.

Thanks to the exit row located in front the seats 30ABC and 30HJK offer extra legroom.

Among disadvantages: location of the lavatories in front, reduced width and lack of floor storage during take-off and landing.

Passengers also tend to congregate in the area of the seats 30DEG while waiting to use lavatories and thus causing discomfort to passengers of these seats.

Lack of floor storage during take-off and landing is another disadvantage of these seats.

The only disadvantage of the seats 41A and 41K are missing windows.

Proximity of the lavatories will cause discomfort to passengers of the seats 43ABC, 43D, 43G, 43HJK and 44DEF.

Limited or no recline makes the seats 43ABC, 43HJK and 44DEF bad seats.

KLM Fleet Boeing 777-300ER Cabin Interior Class Configuration and Seats Layout

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines Boeing 777-300ER features a three class configuration with 34 flat bed World Business seats, 40 Economy Comfort seats, and 334 standard Economy Class seats.

Business class adopts a 2-2-2 layout aboard KLM’s Boeing 777-300ERs, with five rows of seats in the forwardmost section, and an extra row further back.

These are lettered as AC-DG-HK, so couples travelling together may prefer the window-side pairs, while solo flyers will naturally gravitate to the centre for direct aisle access without a neighbour climbing over them, or vice versa.

Seat pairs on the sides angle away from the aisle for just a tad more privacy when travelling with a companion.

For solo flyers in the centre, a fixed privacy divider between each seat will be appreciated, and becomes most useful when the seats are in ‘bed mode’.

Each transforms into a fully-flat bed measuring 51cm (20 inches) wide and aproximately 200cm (79 inches) long in most rows, with a pillow and blanket provided.

In terms of available legroom, this depends on where you’re sitting. In most rows, the seat narrows at the end, with a fixed shelf forming the tail end of your bed.

Good thing about economy seat of B777-300ER for KLM is there’s no IFE box below the seat (in B777-200ER, entertainment box is located on seat A and H reducing legroom and flight comfort for long hour flight).

Seat pitch was of industry average but it still felt roomy.

With economy cabin of B777-300ER is set at 3-4-3 configuration, there is a considerable less aisle width as compared to the aisle of B777-200ER that the company operates.

Also, B777-300ER economy seat has larger TV screen and better IFE console, one would feel like returning to dinosaur era when flying B777-200ER aircraft.

Passengers tend to congregate in the area of the seats 30ABC and 30HJK while waiting to visit lavatories causing discomfort to passengers of these seats.

Passengers of the seats 30BC and 30HJ will feel comfortable thanks to additional space for their legs.

The legroom of the seats 30A and 30K on the contrary is limited by exit doors.

Among other disadvantages of the seats of the 30th row: reduced width and no floor storage during take-off and landing.

Because of the bulkhead position the seats 30DEFG have limited legroom.

Also as the tray tables are in the armrests the width of these seats is reduced.

Lack of floor storage during take-off and landing is another disadvantage of these seats.

The noise from the galleys and lavatories will cause inconvenience to passengers of the seats of the 43rd row.

The third section of economy class seats is located behind another exit row.

The main disadvantages of the seats of the 50th row are: close location of the galleys and lavatories, reduced width and lack of floor storage during take-off and landing.

Also, the seats 50A and 50K have limited space for passengers legs due to protrusion of the exit doors.

Exit row located in front provides extra legroom for passengers of the seats 50BC and 50HJ.

Due to position of the bulkhead the seats 52DEFG have limited legroom.

Location of the galley in front, tray tables built-in the armrests that reduce the seat width and lack of floor storage during take-off and landing are the main disadvantages of these seats.

As for the seat layout, the 777-200 contains a premium economy cabin of 40 seats arranged across 4 rows in a 3-4-3 configuration.

Although there are no lavatories or galleys located near this section, this also means that are no seats with extra legroom.

The lower deck offers seats of three classes.

First 4 rows contain 15 flat bed seats of world business class.

These seats have 180 degrees recline.

The best seats are considered the seats of the 1st row because these seats offer more privacy as well as the seat 4A.

Among disadvantages of the seats 9ABC are: congregation of passengers in the area of these seats in order to visit lavatories, reduced width of the seats, lack of floor storage during take-off and landing.

Also it can get during the flight cold by the exits.

These disadvantages (except the last one) are also the same for the seats 11DE plus limited legroom makes these seats bad seats.

The seats of the economy class are divided into two sections.

First section contains 13 rows of seats.

The legroom of the seats 21A and 21K is restricted by the exit doors that protrude inside the cabin.

Also, as the tray tables are built-in the armrests making them immovable, these seats are narrower than standard.

Passengers of these seats can get cold during the flight by the exits.

Other passengers tend to gather in the area of these seats while waiting to use lavatories and thus causing discomfort to passengers of these seats.

Lack of floor storage during take-off and landing is another disadvantage of these seats.

As to the other seats of this row, i.e. the seats 21BC and 21HJ they are designated by KLM as Economy Comfort seats to reserve which an extra charge should be paid.

These seats have the same disadvantages: reduced width, no floor storage during take-off and landing and also it can get cold during the flight by the exits.

The only disadvantage of A and K seats of the rows 29-31 are misaligned windows.

Location of the lavatories behind and limited recline are the main disadvantages of the seats of the 33rd row.

The second section of economy class seats consists of 11 rows of seats.

The seats 35A and 35K are considered bad seats due to the following reasons: missing windows, restriction of the legroom by the exit doors protrusion, reduced width, no floor storage during take-off and landing and close location of the lavatories.

The seats 35BC and 35HJ have the same disadvantages but passengers of these seats will be able to take advantage of extra legroom.

These seats are designated as Economy Comfort seats to book which an extra charge should be paid.

This version of Boeing 747-400 may accommodate 408 passengers in three classes: world business, economy comfort and economy.

The lower deck contains 15 flat bed seats that have 180 degrees recline.

The seats of the 1st row provide more privacy to passengers.

These seats are considered good seats as well as the seat 4A that has additional personal space and is more private than other business class seats.

Location of the seat 4E in the middle of the cabin is a disadvantage because of the flow of passengers’ traffic.

Lavatory and galleys located behind may cause discomfort as well.

Economy comfort seats may accommodate 36 passengers.

As the seats 9ABC are located behind the exit row passengers of these seats may get cold by the exits during the flight.

Other passengers tend to gather in the area of these seats while waiting to use lavatories thus causing discomfort to passengers.

Tray tables of these seats are in the armrests making them immovable and reducing the width of these seats a little.

Lack of floor storage during take-off and landing is another disadvantage of these seats.

Passengers of the seats 9BC will feel comfortable thanks to extra legroom.

The extra legroom of the seat 9Ais restricted by exit door that protrudes inside.

Close location of the lavatory, reduced with of the seats and lack of floor storage during take-off and landing are the main disadvantages of the seats 11D and 11E.

The seat 11E is considered bad set due to limited legroom caused by the cabinet placed in front of this seat.

The main disadvantages of the seats of the 17th row are: limited recline and close location of the lavatory and galleys.

Extra space between the wall and the seat 17E offers additional space for storage.

337 standard seats of the economy class are located in three sections.

The noise from the galleys and lavatories located nearby, reduced width and lack of floor storage during take-off and landing are the main disadvantages of the seats of the 21st row.

Protrusion of the exit row limits the legroom of the seats 21A and 21K.

The other seats of the 21st row, i.e. the seats 21BC and 21HJ are designated as preferred seats to reserve which an extra charge should be paid.

Passengers of these seats will take advantage of extra space for their legs.

The only disadvantage of C and H seats of the rows 24-28 is proximity of the galleys.

Due to position of the bulkhead the seats 28DEFG have limited legroom.

Among other disadvantages: these seats are narrower than standard and have no floor storage during take-off and landing.

A and K seats of the rows 29-31 have misaligned windows.

Lavatories located behind and limited recline may cause discomfort to passengers of the seats of the 33rd row.

The second section of economy class seats consists of 11 rows.

Passengers of the seats of the 35th row can get cold during the flight by the exits.

These seats are a little narrower than standard because the tray tables are in the armrests making them immovable.

Also these seats have no floor storage during take-off and landing.

Restricted legroom and missing windows make the seats 35A and 35K bad seats.

KLM designates the seats 35BC and 35HJ as preferred seats to book which an extra fee should be paid.

Due to the exit row located in front passengers of these seats will take advantage of extra legroom.

Location of the lavatories may be bothersome for passengers of these seats as well as for passengers of the seats 36BC and 36HK.

Passengers travelling with infants are often seated on the seats 37DEFG.

Due to position of the bulkhead the legroom of these seats is restricted.

Location of the lavatory in front may represent problem as well.

The seats 44DEFG, 44HJK and 45ABC are less reclining than standard.

The noise from the galley located behind is another disadvantage of these seats.

The third section of economy class seats is also located behind the exit row.

That is why the seats of the 51st row offer extra legroom.

However, these legroom in case of the seats 51A and 51K is restricted by protrusion of the exit doors inside.

Among other disadvantages of these seats: proximity of the galleys, reduced width and lack of floor storage during take-off and landing.

The seats 51BC and 51HJ are designated by KLM as preferred seats.

Because of the position of the bulkhead the seats 56DEFG have limited space for passengers’ legs.

Also, these seats are narrower than standard, are located close to the galley and have no floor storage during take-off and landing.

Due to curvature of the tail the seats 62A and 62K may feel cramped a little.

For passengers travelling with a partner will be ideal BC and HJseats of the rows 63-66.

B and J seats of these rows have additional storage space at windows side but at the same time it may be bothersome when passenger wants to lean the head against the wall.

Passengers tend to congregate in the area of the seats 66BC, 66HJ, 67D, 67G and 68DEFG while waiting to use lavatories and causing discomfort to passengers of these seats.

Limited recline makes the seats 66BC, 66HJ and 68DEFG bad seats.

The upper deck may accommodate 20 passengers of business class.

These seats are divided into 2 section per 10 in each.

The only disadvantage of the seat 77J is location of the lavatory in front.
