There's actually a couple of things I'd like to know. What's the difference between the A340-500 and the A340-600, the two newest A340 variants coming out?
And what happened to the A340-8000(yes,there are three zeroes!)?? Something tells me it's a dud!

The main difference is the range and pax. The 500 has a longer range(300-325 pax) about 15000km and the 600 (375-400pax) about 13500-14000 km. The 500 will be the longest range aircraft flying when it enters service in 2001.
