 KLM ORDERS EIGHTEENTH BOEING 747-400
 SEATTLE, Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has


ordered its eighteenth 747-400, the Boeing Commercial Airplane Group confirmed today. The order is valued at about $160 million.
 The 747-400 Combi, which carries passengers in the forward part of the airplane, can serve as a "mini-freighter" by hauling cargo in the aft portion of the main deck. It has a large cargo loading door on the main floor behind the left wing.
 This will be KLM's eleventh Combi. The Amsterdam-based carrier currently operates nine -400 Combis and has one other on order. In addition, it operates four all-passenger versions of the Boeing superjet, with another on order, and has two 747-400F freighters on order. This latest 747 model can fly more than 8,000 miles with a full load.
 The airline has said it will use the airplane announced today to "extend the possibilities which KLM has won concerning routes to the Far
East." It recently secured additional landing rights in Japan. To date, 460 firm orders for Boeing 747-400s have been announced.
