News about KLM and Transavia.

KLM: a special livery will be painted this week on PH-BXC (738). It will promote the new KLM/AF frequent flyer program. The plane will have this livery till the end of the year. Apparantly "most of the forward fuselage" will be painted. No word about AF, but it seems likely that they will get similar/same special livery.

Transavia: winglets will be added to the entire fleet. The first ons is to be installed this winter.Transavia is 100% owned by KLM, but they seem to have no intention to get winglets.
Meanwhile, the new livery is still on the backburner. It is now scheduled to be introduced "in a few months".
