I know the 343E is available in either 271 or 275 tonne MTOW. Which are the airlines that have the heavier versions and which are the ones that have the other?

How are they different? Does the 275t version have extra fuel tanks or extra engine thrust?

Off the top of my head SQ and CX are the only carriers with the 275,000kgs version that I know of, however I'm not 100% sure about CX.

LH, OS, VS and China Eastern fly the 271ton version (some also fly the 257ton version - 300).

I don't think there is any difference in terms of fuel capacity or engines - I know on the SQ343s, a 5% thrust bump is available for takeoff (for about 5mins). Basically you can carry more on the 275ton version before you start eating into fuel capacity.

Cheers,

Justin

I don't believe this is correct. The reason Airbus bumped up the MTOW from 271t to 275t was because Airbus wasn't able to meet its guaranteed range for SQ. As a result, they had to add additional fuel capacity and increase the MTOW.
