Where have all the a342s gone? I remember Lufthansa flying them for a short while. Are they just not economical for a plane that can carry a limited max. # of pax? I dont know. I was not able to reply to previous topics so im starting a new one for me and for other A342 fans.
There are a few VIP/Gov operators. Qatar Amiri Flight, Gov of Egypt, Saudi Royal Flight, The French Air Force (This may be a 213X). The Kingodn of Jordan has one that is being replaced by a different 340 any day now.
No, but I remember Brunei Sultan's flight 2nd A342 was a -200X and I seem to remember they sold it.. someone has any news on this airframe?
Quoting UAL747 (Reply 10): Finally, how many A343's does VS still have compared to the max number they had at one time? Seems like I never see any pics of them, only the A346's now.
They still have 6:
3 -300s (2nd and 3rd A340 ever built included)
They had 4 more -300s, 2 are with Air Comet, 1 with Finnair and 1 is goin to Iberia (I think this one is the one that had a tail strike and was then flying with BWIA... wasn't it supposed to be the 1st A340 to be scrapped? I'm sure glad this shouldn't happen)
