On May 20 I depart from the States via KLM to Johannesburg. (Both directions are thru Amsterdam.) I’ve recently heard report of the Dutch government prohibiting all citizens except Dutch from boarding in KLM flights from SA for transit through Amsterdam.

I would appreciate reports from the field of recent travelers from SA through Amsterdam.

I’ve not heard of anything like this.
Is this Delta from Atlanta?

Just returned from SA. We where scheduled to return on KLM but the flight was cancelled the night before, so we had to switch to Qatar.

Yes I am using an agent. Thanks for the post Dudders. I have seen that myself. Prior/other posts articulated the prohibition was for persons from those countries.

The odd thing is that KLM had a flight from J’burg to Amsterdam statuses as “Flight On Time” two days ago. Have tried to get direct info from Delta/KLM on this.

Of course reaching a real person is rare. Yesterday Delta on-line support rep suggested that I call the Embassy.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
