Summary:

Airline: KLM
Aircraft: 737-800
Seat maps: KLM | SeatGuru
Seat Info: Seats 1A/C
Class: KLM Business Class (Europe)

Seats: Your typical economy seat turns business-y with an empty seat next to you and more personalized service. What else? Well, if you’re in 1C you’ll get enough legroom for full extention thanks to the shifting aisle. That’s not the case in the window seat where the wall leaves you with leg space that’s better than economy but restricted.

KLM Business Class Seat 1C aboard a 737-800

In 1C? Hop on too early and you’re likely to get walked right into. Likely the best seat on the plane for legroom is the worst during the boarding process.

If you choose the extra-extra legroom of seat 1C, consider boarding last. Getting seated here too early means that you’ll have to deal with passengers shifting into the misaligned aisle and bumping your knees with their bags.

Tech/Connectivity/Entertainment:  Wi-fi isn’t offered here but you can keep your knick-knacks charged using the power ports located underneath the middle seat.

KLM Business Class Meal

The salmon was a little fishy, but well…it’s fish. A decent quick meal on a 40 minute hop to Amsterdam from London.

Food: Typically, you’ll get a small meal in KLM Business Class when travelling within Europe. On this hop a light and fairly tasty breakfast included a salmon plate served with yogurt and fruit. Rolls and croissants were offered but we passed.

Service: Flight attendants were dutiful and got everything served in time on this short hop but weren’t overly friendly. If your focus is getting to your destination with maybe a light meal and don’t expect much in the way of pleasantries, then KLM Business Class within Europe should work fine.
