KLM Charging for Meals on Transatlantic flights??

Jump to last reply

Can this be true? I just received an e-mail from KLM:


<We're now offering à la carte meals in economy class on KLM operated flights departing Amsterdam to our US gateways (except to San Francisco).

Customers will have the choice of four à la carte options, from $16 per meal:

• Bella Italia
• Vegetarian
• Indonesian rice dish
• Healthy Japanese

You can place your order either during the online booking process or between 90 days and 48 hours prior to departure via 'Manage my Booking'.

Smakelijk eten - Enjoy your meal!>


Does this mean that if you don't pony up the "from $16," you do not eat on a flight from JFK to AMS, for example? Are they kidding? Or is this old news?
