Your best source of this information is your airline's website, even if you didn't book with them. For example, the KLM page on intercontinental meals says: Economy Class intercontinental On all KLM intercontinental flights, we welcome you on board with a beverage of choice. You are then served your choice of one of our two Delicious hot meals. ...

No, you will not need to pay any additional fees. Any applicable airport tax will be included in your ticket and is irrelevant to whether you spend the entire 6 hours inside Schiphol's security zone or if you use some of it to venture outside the airport. It is entirely at your discretion how you spend that time. Just make sure you are back in time to ...

Emirates, hands down. Emirates ICE has a huge TV in every seat with 600+ channels including a big kids section, and they only have new planes. On KLM, if you end up on their ancient MD-11s, you'll be squinting at a screen the size of a postage stamp in the front of the cabin (and that's in business class!). In general, Emirates is the better airline in ...

As the commonts say, check seatguru to see if you're likely to have at-seat power. I don't recall every being on a Delta or KLM flight that had at seat power in economy, they most likely will in business. If it's got a newer version of the in-seat entertainment it might have a USB socket and that might be powered, although it depends (again, check seatguru) ...

Some airlines do allow short-checking of bags, although most will only allow it under specific circumstances, such as longer or overnight connections. Even airlines that used to allow it are starting to disallow it - for ...

No you don't need to take it and recheck it in. Only if you are continuing on a low cost flight, you would need to collect your bag, check out, got the checkin desk of the low cost carrier and check in again. It is not advisable to take this route, because if you have a delay on your incoming flight, because of which you miss your connection, you would need ...

AirBaltic has a "Seat Buddy" program where they let people choose to sit with other passengers with similar moods / interests. Arguably, Airtroductions has tried to get dating in flight happening, but it's dubious as to whether they ever properly got "off the ground". Planely lets you reach out to other passengers on your flight too (although they also ...

Edit: The Fedex Baggage Free Service is unavailable (at least in Canada). This is a moot point, however, as your baggage can be couriered with plain-old courier service and the right customs forms. (See this answer) There is the Fedex Baggage Free Service. Rates and Transit Times The Baggage Free page points you to the normal Fedex rate and transit ...
