KLM MD-11 retirement flights announced
KLM has announced a group of farewell flights for enthusiasts on its McDonnell Douglas MD-11 aircraft.
The airline is the last to operate the tri-holer on passenger flights and will retire it by the end of the year. The fleet has been slowly reduced over the past year, with aircraft being sent to desert storage locations for part-out.
Many enthusiasts have been calling on the airline to offer a farewell flight as a way of saying goodbye to the MD-11; for many it will be the last chance to get a flight on board it.
KLM will fly three one-hour enthusiast flights from Amsterdam Schiphol on 11 November 2014, with all passengers receiving a commemorative book as part of their ticket cost.
Tickets go on sale from 16 September, at 11:11am, priced at 111 Euros. EDIT: You can buy tickets now from this link: https://md11farewellflight.klm.com/en_us/
