These are great pics. Thanx for posting them here. I like the new A345 A LOT!
It looks very good in the EK livery.
The Longest Range Aircraft in the World is ready to take over the skies.
With 8500Nm it is definetly very advanced over other Airliners.
Is only EK actually flying them after AC doesn't take theirs anymore?

No, 495 has been delivered to Qatar Airways and is @ Bordeaux, France for VVIP outfitting (it's a government aircraft). And the first SIA is painted @ TLS.

Now THIS is more like it! This model looks really great unlike the nearly spaghetti-thin -600 (OK, that's a bit of an exaggeration. Big grin). This is one bird I'm really looking forward to riding on a long-hauler! Amen!  Big thumbs up

SQ plans to operate SIN-LAX nonstop with these machines - 18 hrs of flying. Too long for me...!!!

I thought the longest range now belongs to the B777-200LR eh.... but still,the A345 is a nice aircraft aswell, still prefer the triple though....

I didn't know that some airline operates that airliner!!!

I sincerly think that at the moment, the 772LR doesn't exist, so the longest ragne is 345.

The 772LRET is designed to feature longer range than the A345.... but considering that it wont fly for another two years, the A345 has the title.

Interestingly enough, the 772ER still retains its title as longest ranged aircraft in commercial service, since the yucky A345 is now down to its third potential launch customer  Laugh out loud

Looks good to me. I'd like to see it in other airlines.

Anyway, 4 engines is still better than 2. And 3 is better than 2. Long live MD-11. Big grin

which is precisely why all the 4holers are outselling their twinjet competitors and near-competitors; and why 3holers are still being manufactured new, right?  Insane

Very nice pictures for a very nice plane!

Concorde- Boy "rather uninspiring pics... very odd-looking aircraft"

maybe "odd-Looking" for you? but efficient. Because that's an Airbus you do not like it. If it was the exact same plane with the name Boeing on it, you'll love it.

We all know that....... but who care!  Insane

Perhaps once you've gotten more than the all of 4 posts here that you currently boast, you'd figure I'm a fan of most aircraft regardless of manufacturer; and also subject to expressing my honest opinion despite the whining antics of hypersensitive French insolence/etc  Insane
