Anyone figured out what KLM stands for?

I think it's K'Royal L'Dutch M'Airlines
According to Wikipedia, it's Koninklijke Luchtvaart Maatschappij.
=Royal Dutch Airlines  :)

What is ?
I just didn't know that MR transfers straight to Aeroplan. I'm going to look into an Amex cc. (If you have any pointers where to begin with that)
