Hmmm, must have missed something here, 'cos it's always got me in and out of wherever we're flying - and I'm not going down the route yet again of why its performance seems so leisurely - if you need it, it's got it...... but as the song also goes...... It aint what you got, it's the way that you do it D
So I drive a 4x4. So what?! Tax the a$$ off me for it...oh, you already have... :-(

Quoting Laxintl (Reply 2): One of the limiting factors of such a long flight from Istanbul is the airports relatively short 9800ft runways combined with the A340s somewhat poor field length performance.
The A340 has a similar field performance profile to a 777.
