Air-France---CopyAir France KLM has disclosed its method of rewarding its passengers through the initiative called “Random acts of surprises”, which involved randomly giving out surprise gifts to customers, with the aim of celebrating old and new customers.

The gifts given out included free upgrades, free extra bags, free seat plus upgrades, free preferred seats upgrades among others.

It said that from the 16th of November 2015 to the 20th of November 2015, Air France KLM will further celebrate its customers through a customer inclined campaign tagged “Smile Week”. During this super ‘Smile Week’, ‘Random acts of Surprises’ will be extended to several customers daily, the airline noted.

Therefore, customers, who visit the Air France KLM City Ticketing Offices in Lagos and Abuja from the 16th to the 20th of November for their ticket transactions, stand the chance of winning wonderful surprise gifts daily. To qualify, the customer must be one of the passengers travelling, it explained.

Meanwhile, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has taken delivery of its first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner. KLM acquired the airplane through leasing company AerCap. The 787-9 complements and extends the 787 family.

With the fuselage stretched by 6 meters (20 feet) over the B787-8, the B787-9 can fly up to 20 per cent more passengers and 23 per cent more cargo.

In addition to this delivery, the Air France-KLM Group has 19 B787-9s and six B787-10s on order and will lease 12 B787s through AerCap. KLM will operate its first B787-9 on the Amsterdam – Abu Dhabi – Bahrain service.

The President and Chief Executive Officer of KLM, Pieter Elbers said: “We are very proud to welcome our first Boeing 787 Dreamliner. “This aircraft symbolizes a new phase in the future of KLM. Investment in our customers is one of our priorities. This efficient aircraft is part of that investment. It’s testimony to the great work of 33,000 KLM employees, who are committed to giving their best for our customers every day.”

    Sai Baba Buhari. So these people will one day court Nigerians. Dubai is doing same.

    This is so patronizing, cheap and insulting, regardless of whether they’re EU or Arab airlines. You can even add the airline from that starving country called Ethiopia and the Masai one from Kenya. These airlines know how much money they rake from Nigerians, yet, they meet out the worst services to Nigerians, both inside and outside Nigeria. The saddest part of it is that we are left helpless and hopeless by our own governments. This really hurts, and one just hopes that some sane official in government is reading these news and comments.

      Amaechi should put some good heads together and float that national carrier: “New Nigerian”. Full stop!

      WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR NIGERIAN AIRWAYS. BUSYBODY ALWAYS BLAIMING OTHERS. WHAT DID NIGERIAN AIRWAYS OFFER NIGERIANS WHEN IT IS EXISTING

      • Elias James

        PINCO, if you cared to read, I placed the responsibility for this awkward situation on our own governments. That does not preclude chastising the airlines that continue to exploit Nigerians. I’d guess, though, that Nigerian Airways was run aground by the likes of “busybodies” who can hardly write, spell and reason (please look in the mirror, and peace to you).
