SAA A340 At Hartsfield Information?

Wed Mar 03, 2004 9:36 am

Excuse me if the info is available already in the forums or somewhere else, but I can't find it. In a few hours I am off to Hartsfield with short notice for the first time since they (I think) switched to the A340-600. I saw their 744 many times and it arrived about 0830 and left about 1100. I think the flight times and turnaround times must be slightly different now for the A340. Does anybody know what time it arrives to atlanta? I would really love to see it if I can. Thanks.

I'm back and I did get to see it arrive. That thing is massive. It just looks so much bulkier than the 744 especially from the front. Thanks again.
