I flew my mother-in-law a few months ago in from Russia. Her first flight was delayed a few hours, before she boarded it. This made her ONLY connecting flight from Amsterdam to the US, gone before she arrived there.
She was offered no assistance at all and was forced to spend the night, and day in the Amsterdam terminal until the next day, 18 hours. She was offered no food or water , or a day room to rest, which they have available.

I have repeatedly contacted KLM by phone and email for months and had NO response. There is no email listed for complaints that I could find. When you search for KLM on the web, it takes you to a NWA site and they say they can't do anything, contact KLM. I would ask HOW?

I wish now they hadn't responded when I offered them my credit card number to book the trip!!
I took this from your website. What a Joke!!
