I had to fly back at short notice due to an unexpected serious family illness. I was worried about connecting flights as time was short in Schipol. When I explained my concern to the staff in Rome, they, and the flight crew could not have been more helpful. They radioed ahead to check my gate, made sure I got off the plane first, that I knew where to go and then that the crew on the second aircraft were aware. The second crew moved me forward and made sure I was (again) first off the aircraft to meet my taxi. I made it home just in time and cannot thank KLM enough for their wonderful staff and outstanding performance! They went above and beyond and I have kept the beautiful card the crew gave me as I left the aircraft. Thank you KLM.
