Since the A340-500 has the maximum range of 8,680 nm and the distance between cities like FRA, II International (KRK / EPKK), Poland">KRK, WAW and PRG and Sydney is approx. 8, 480 nm, my question is, can there be non-stop flights between the cities mentioned above and Sydney ? Does any one know? Thanks.

Yes it is possible. But one must remember the head winds when flying from Sydney to Europe so that stretches it a bit. Secondly, though possible, such a routing is not feasible because there simply isn't enough traffic between these cities and Sydney. Besides, no European or Australian carrier has purchased the A340-500 for such a route.
