Big fans of Maho Beach (Airport Beach in St. Maarten) are going to be disappointed that KLM is splitting the service to St. Maarten and Curacao and more shocking (but not surprising) is that they are replacing the 747-400 with an A330-200. This is still a large jet but not as special as the 747 in my opinion.
This was reported by www.routesonline.com which is a great source for this sort of news. HT to Jim Liu for finding this.
Maho Beach patrons waiting for the 747. The highlight of trips to this beach for sure.
