It's only functional because there is a checklist that something is non functioning. Then, it goes back around into the levels of bureaucracy again, papers get pushed around, 14 government agencies get involved, and ten years later it is decided that it is indeed still non functioning. Then, a committee is put together to figure out is it really non functioning? If so, how can it function?

25 years later, everyone has forgotten the initial problem.

Yes, but have you seen their seniority list? The Dutch KING is an FO stuck yanking gear on a Fokker for 900 year-old captains for years and only transitioned to the 73 when the fleet was retired.

The best part is that KLM paid back the money by putting out more shares.

Which the state bought a lot of to maintain their percentage ownership.
