Hi guys,
i have a question about the belly of the A340-500.
Yesterday EY operated AUH-FRA-AUH with on of their A340-500s. Usually they used to fly with the A340-300 this route, but anyway...
I am working for the handling agency at FRA and I am always in contact with the ramp-agent during the handling. Yesterday the ramp-agent was very busy. I asked him why and he answered that the -500 have a completely different belly as the -300 and because of this the loading have to be done different. He said something like "everything have to be loaded in containers and there is no belly and the cargo compartment is non-existent". I've to confess that I don't know nothing about loading and the belly of these aircrafts, but it really interest me. Do someone of you know the difference between the 500 and the 300? I am very thankful to everybody who enlights me Big grin
