Questions About The Airbus A340-500.

Wed May 22, 2002 4:53 pm


I have some questions about the new Airbus A340-500. It is known as the range-beating airliner.
- When is the first airplane due to be produced ??
- Which airlines have ordered it ??
- Will it be able to fly non stop Europe to Australia ??
- What will be its actual range ?

I've just read that SIA intended to fly non-stop SIN-JFK/EWR with it. Is it true ??

Thank you for your answers.
