Nice! The IFE and the WiFi was a big highlight of the flight, and so was the food. However, when I pressed the service button twice to get a thicker blanket, no one came, so I had to sleep in a thin and apparently cold blanket. Other than that, I can steer clear from negatives.
The seat seems to be old, no much leg space then any other airlines. The movies are not updated to latest ones, either old or average rated films.The food is good, the staff is good
Traveled from Amsterdam to Delhi and this seat is very nice. Economy comfort one is cheaper when you upgrade after checkin opens. You can sit there folding your legs even and still some space will be available for medium built guy/girls. No problems with the electronic equipment. No difference in food. Just the seat is nice ,and cozy place guarded with a curtain.
Armrest does not come up. Stays down.
Just traveled GIG-AMS and was forced to choose 40G & E, 'cause KLM didn't realase all the free seats in Economy cabin; by the way, "congrats" KLM! 40G - awful seat, limited recline, and in addition 39G (in front) has a huge recline, and your monitor is 10 cm from your face. Overall the KLM Dream liner was NOT an impressive aircraft. I wah hoping for something else better than this cheap & regular "bus".
The full flat bed seat is long enough for tall people like me! (I am 6'3") I flew many times bc on several major airlines and this was the first time that I was able to lie down fully stretched out on a flat bed! I think this applies to all business class seats in this aircraft configuration.
Flew Amsterdam to Osaka and back in 14H. I was pleasantly surprised by this seat after reading other comments here about how hard and narrow the economy (comfort) seats are on KLM's 787s. As far as the seat goes, it seemed no different than the economy seats on Delta or other legacy carriers. Yes the 100 euro upgrade for economy comfort is a bit steep for what you get, but being rather tall I didn't regret it. Friendly cabin crew and decent meals both ways. The larger windows and better cabin pressure were nice too. Would fly this aircraft / seat again.
Pitch is nice in this economy comfort row. Rather silent cabin, no noise from the galley. IFE nice. Meal acceptable. The main problem is the seat width : I have been bumped all the flight long by those walking up and down in the alley. My partner had a middle seat and was cramped between me and the 14F passenger.
Very uncomfortable seats in dreamliner 787-9 in economy, extremely hard and narrow. JAL config is much better with 2-4-2. Airco is very poor as well.
Flew business class. Chose 1K bc read the service was slow but the terrible proximity to bathroom was very annoying. I didnt expect so much traffic to the lavatory due to the small cabin but it was like every 5 minutes someone was going to the bathroom! Also i can hear the toilet flushing!! Gross.
The main issue with 14K is if you have wide shoulders like I do, the wall juts out into your shoulder space making it quite difficult to get comfortable. Additionally, the economy class seats are quite hard so you end up having a bit of a sore bum at the end. I don't think economy comfort is worth the price as the seat is just as narrow as regular economy and the extra legroom is fairly negligible.
I travelled IAH to AMS in seat 5k then returned in 4k. The business class seat is hard and is awkward. I would hit my left knee on the round protrusion which is where the seat ahead of me lies down into. The right armrest was very awkward with a curvature which made it hard to rest my right arm. I also kept hitting the seat controls Anyway, a poorly ergonomically designed seat.
Horrible seat. Constantly passengers and crew is bumping into you due to the seat location half way into the aisle. If you are stretcing out, your legs will reach into the entry area of the galley, resulting in the crew inadvertantly kicking your feet. Even the middle seat woul be better.
Was originally seated in 8K, but recline did not function properly. 8G has inward-facing seat and no window, but it was a night flight so not a big issue. Very comfortable seat, easy to use seating controls, power and earphone ports very accessible, and screen easy to use. Even galley nearby was not an issue, and no noise or disturbance. But hope to get outward-facing seat for day flight the next trip.
It is a standard business seat with a decent amount of space on the side, including a compartment where you can place small items. I couldn't get the recline to go a full 180 degrees, and the USB port did not work very well. The temperature and positioning by the window was fine.
Nice seat. Ice in the windows: bad sight. Service from San Jose to Amsterdam was bad: no drinks before dinner, dinner (starter, main course and dessert) together delivered on a plastic tray, served in a hurry. Crew said passengers wanted to go to sleep...
Used this seat both ways Jan/Feb 2018. Terrible choice stuck in the back. Reasonable on the outward flight as the a/c was 1/3 empty resulting in more space. AMS to SFO was dreadful with a full passenger load. Overall the KLM B 787 Dreamliner is a very expensive "Cattle Wagon" I've had over 40 yrs business and economy travel and can only surmise the travel experience is NOT GETTING BETTER! - ROLLS ROYCE style a/c with Ford Model T seats
Traveled from Amsterdam to San Francisco. Chose 42G both ways. Terrible choice - I should have upgraded to Economy Plus. Overall the KLM Dream liner was NOT an impressive aircraft, more akin to a very expensive "Cattle Wagon"
Great aircraft when it comes to the flying experience only. Legroom and seat width in economy is however attrocious. A hen in a battery has more room. IFE ist great and service too.
On this seat you are facing a wall, and have really great legspace. However - some people can't really tell the difference between the public aisle and your space in the front, and there at times there was an intense traffic in my space where people were kicking my legs, especially the Chinese people on board. As has been mentioned by many others the seats are extremely narrow, and I constantly hit the light button and the seat incline button accidentally.
