KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has switched an order for six Boeing 787-9s to the larger 787-10 to better fit with its network plans.

The Dutch carrier has 10 787s on order, which were originally destined to be 787-9s, with the first aircraft slated to arrive in October.

However, in a brief statement issued Aug. 19, the carrier said: “KLM has changed its order for six Boeing 787-9’s to the larger 787-10 because of the network. It is not an additional order, and the aircraft are expected as of 2020.”

KLM is planning to roll out Wi-Fi and revamped interiors with the delivery of its first Boeing 787-9.
