do carriers like LH and IB allow A346 and A343 flight crews to be interchangeable, how about A330 and A340 crews with LH and other airlines?

I don't know about interchange on the different A340-types at LH an IB, but they probably do. At LX for example we fly either A340 and A330 (A332 and A333) or A330 and A320-family.

In Cathay, cross qualified crews can operate A340-300/600 and A330-300. (Of course now we no longer have A340-600's).

Conversion does not take long and involves 1 day ground school for A340-300 to A340-600, followed by one quick exam.

Another day of groundschool for A340 to A330 differences followed by another quick exam and one 1 simulator session (A340 to A330 or v.v.)

When we operated the types, one crew roster flew the A340-300, A340-500 and A330-300 at the same time. However, there were Transport Canada restrictions on maintaining competency ... namely if you had not flown one of the three in over 180 days, you had to go back to the training centre for simulator.

Also, when going from the A330/A340 to the A319/320/321 or vv. you did not require a full course, just a so called "short course" as the family similarities were there.

at LH all three types (A333, A343, A346) are flown at the same time, but I think you need at least every 90 days a landing on each type.

I think it is 3 landings. And sometimes that doesn't work out, so they need an extra simulator session to get to these landings.

Within Switzerland it is:
For Crews on A330/340: total 3 landings in 90 days, at least one on each type
For Crews on A320/330: 3 landings on each type within 90 days.

If you loose your recency, it can be regained in Simulator or on an actual flight with a flight instructor.

MX pilots (some, not all yet) fly the A318/319/320 and the A330; actually a very good friend of mine just got his promotion letter to fly the A330; he´s an A320 captain.

Best Regards
