KLM is the Dutch airline, not KML.


It also has the most beautiful soundtrack – gorgeous music – on their commercial currently on RT
First time I heard it I was elsewhere in the house. I came running to the tv to find out what this gorgeous music represented and it was Aeroflot. Very well done!!! A class act.!!


I know!!!! The music gives me goosebumps and makes me want to board a flight RIGHT THIS MINUTE.


Yep, and I enthusiastically sing along making my little Chihuahua think “what’s wrong with mummy” LOL

It’s a certainty American air transportation companies are not on the “great flights” list. Greyhound and Trailways bus services provided better travel experiences, in their day, than the likes of DELTA, UNITED, AMERICAN, etc. Listen: dirty smelly lavoritories, unclean isles, soiled cramped seats, overpriced sandwiches, unintelligible intercom, snooty in-flight attendants, filthy windows, late and overbooked flights.
Most Americans will probably never fly AEROFLOT, but surely they are better than United, et al..
