Nice, lets hope they get one or two low loads to Hong Kong and put these on the route for a while !!

Hello,

What routes will the A340-200 operate with SA?

I still like the way the whitewash c/s cleans up with quite a colorful tail. Looks nice on the chunky A342.

I don't think it would be anything special to see at CLK, N754pr. The A340-200 looks nice but there are no major visual differences between the A342 & A343 other than the fact that the A342 is shorter in length than the A343, and HKG already gets plenty of A343s!

Did SA keep the LH intrior? As far as I know these birds are only leased for a short time, so it may be to costly to redo the cabin. LH doesn't put its own seats into the leased A332 either.

SAA are actually leasing the aircraft directly from Airbus Asset Management, not Lufthansa. I understand that they were traded in to Airbus by Lufthansa as part of the A330 deal.

Lufhansa used to operate the A342's in a 3 clas config: 8F+42C+162M. SAA will be operating these aircraft in a two class config: 42J+194Y.

I am interested to see if Airbus has elected to install PTV/Audio-Video-on-demand systems on these aircraft now. (Possibly making the aircraft more desirable to other airlines after the SAA lease)

SAA will only be using the A340-200s for about 18 months. Apparently this can be extended if SAA wishes to expand their route network and/or frequencies. If not extended, Airbus will have to find alternate homes for the aircraft.
