A 346 is 75 metres, longer than a B 744.

No offense there, but that's the kind of question you could find the answer to in less than 90 seconds, just by visiting the websites of the respective manufacturers.

No offense LY744, but he chose to ask it here. Get over it.

The 777-300 is longer than the 747... The A340-600 is longer than both.

If I am not mistaken, the A340-642 is the longest passenger airliner in the world. I saw it last Wednesday - it is awesome.

Funny you should tell me that, KROC. I mean, considering your little hobbie.

The A430-600 has to be one of the best looking planes around.

I agree. Can't wait to see those huge Trent engines painted bright red.

Craigy: Thanx for the pics!! Absolutely mega-cool, wow, saw it in FRA one or two weeks ago, though only from a distance. What an aircraft! No more jokes about the only 5-APU-aircraft in the world, I guess.
Airbus rulez!!
I know it's only VfB but I like it!
