Notes:

"KLM 76 Uniform" pushing back for AMS. This summer seasonal second daily flight to SFO was added in 2017 and is usually operated by Boeing 787-9s, but 777s sub in on rare swaps once in a while. This 777 with a white nose cone was still wearing the "KLM Asia" livery at the time. The brand was started to allow for service into both China and TPE when China did not want carriers serving their nation to also fly to Taiwan. So, many spin subsidiaries such as "Australia Asia Airlines"(Qantas), Japan Asia Airlines(JAA), British Asia Airways, Air France Asie, ect were started in the 90s to circumvent these restrictions. Though most of these airlines were gone by the late 90s, KLM has decided to continue the branding.
