The damage looks minor according to the picture. I think she will be back flying in a few weeks.

Reportedly, there were 190 pax on board? How's that even possible?

KLM's -900s are configured for 183 pax, and -900s are certified for 189 pax anyway.

Perhaps a mixup about the 7 crew on board? There was one report claiming 190 passengers and 7 crew.

At first I thought it was one of the classics, because this plane is in the old livery, I thought all the NGs had the new livery.
