Uh oh. KLM (Royal Dutch Airlines), now part of Air France and a tight partner with Northwest Airlines. Has an image problem.
(…) The witness, 17 years old at the time (1949) saw a fierce exchange between KLM CEO Albert Plesman and the famous writer and pilot Adriaan Viruly . The latter protested bitterly according to the witness that he was asked to fly ‘black monks’ to Argentina. It was clear from the exchange those were Nazi war criminals said the witness, who was not publicly identified.
Because Viruly apparently considered to bring the matter in the open Plesman warned the pilot according to the witness with the words: “If you dare to ruin my KLM, I will take steps.”
