From my experience and knowledge, ALL Lufthansa A340 have been refitted with the new Business Class. However, GRU-MUC is marked as 34P in the TT and Amadeus, and also actual LH floorplans still show a 3 class A340 ... so, wht is the current status?

Any help is appreciated.

all longhaul aircraft (apart from the A300-600s) are now fitted with the new business class. the last latter in 34P, to the best of my knowledge, shows whether its a large business class or the smaller one. there's also the code 34Q. but I'm not sure which one is which - larger or smaller business cabin.


If only pure sweetness was offered, why's this bitter taste left in my mouth.

All the LH long haul aircraft have the new business class since last spring.

Hi Mario,

LH504/505 have had the new Business Class the flight was launched on 14-Sep-06. The route was done by the 34Q up to mid October if I remember correctly when LH switched to a daytime departure ex MUC, the flight became daily and the equipment was chaned to a 34P. In two weeks time the flight will be upgraded to a 34D.

Cheers!

Marcelo

346 = Airbus A340-600 = 66/C-class, 279/M-class
34D = Airbus A340-600 = 8/F-class, 60/C-class, 238/M-class
343 = Airbus A340-300 = 8/F-class, 42/C-class, 197/M-class
34V = Airbus A340-300 = 44/C-class, 222/M-class
330 = Airbus A330-300 = 8/F-class, 48/C-class, 165/M-class

These are the Airbus seating configurations we´re currently flying around with. This is the most current information I have. It might be outdated because it seems to me that the 343 version/configuration still features the old Business Class.

I´ve never heard of the codes 34P and 34Q, I´ve only seen the code 74P which is referred to as the Boeing 747-400 configuration with 16/F-class, 80/c-class, 234/M-class which is the largest Business class section offered on the 747-400. The code for 747´s with the smaller Business class would be 744.

However I don´t work in reservations, I´m a flight attendant so my info might not be totally up-to-date. 34P and 34Q might be used as codes in reservations/Amadeus etc. however I really don´t think that we have any more versions than the ones I´ve posted above... so I´m a bit confused myself.

Best regards

Hmmm... I know there's also a version of the A343 with 36 business seats. It currently flies on the DEN-MUC route. I'm guessing this could be the A34P or A34Q. Although, I believe the A34P is a 48-seat version.

Yep, the 34Q is flying MUC-DEN. And yes, the 34Q has 36 C/Cl seats while the 34P has 48 C/Cl seats.
