A342 was still in their fleet before November 1998.A342 also operated to Asian cities, like Seoul, and they did operate to Singapore.But i'm not sure...whether your flight was a 324 or 343...but you could actually define whether it is a 2 or 3 by its appearance.Any pics of the appearance?
oh no, so it looks like I'll never find out if I was on a 342 or 343... unfortunately I don't have any other photos of the aircraft, but it seems that the chance of having flown on a 342 is greater than a 342.
Easiest way I reckon is count the number of windows in the group immediately behind the second door. If it's 8 it's a -300 whereas if it's 4 it's a -200 (don't forget to look for any blanks in this group and count them as well). Obviously the -300 is also longer aft of the wing (4 more windows than the -200) although these are harder to count.
Thanks for the help, so it really seems to be impossible to find out. Too bad. At this time I wasn't that much into aviation photographing, so I didn't take a photo when I left the aircraft in SIN. But about 20 flights ago i started to write down the Reg.° of the aircraft I flew, so this won't happen again
