Yes, bu those prices don't include for an assigned seat (speedy boarding is the closest thing at £8) or luggage at £12 e/w plus food.

If you don't need luggage or a seat then it can be cheaper, but otherwise, not really.

It's a 45 minute flight max. Hardly worthy of pre-booking seats. I'll manage without a poor excuse for a 'deli roll' in that time. Unlimited hand luggage weight means I can stick everything in there, I've had 25kg in my hand luggage before.

I miss full service airlines, but you can't moan too much when the no-frills are 50% cheaper.

These prices are so much more than going on Easyjet or BMI.

In terms of quality of service, KLM and BMI aren't that far removed from one another.

If you do online check in on BMI you can pick your own seat anyway, the planes are decent and don't land at Schiphol (unlike some budget airlines landing at airports miles from the city you're supposed to be flying to).

I can't see that this KLM deal is a good deal, unless they are throwing in free £50 notes with every purchase, in which case it would be about the same as flying BMI.
