LH A346 MUC-SFO

Thu Apr 01, 2004 12:44 pm

I have noticed the A346 has been coming into SFO a few times. Sabre shows it as a A343. Anyone know why the sub? Is SFO expected to see the A346 on a regular schedule during the summer, which is high season for San Francisco?

Yes, the A340-600 is schedualed three or four days a week on the Munich-SFO route. I believe it will be a dedicated A340-600 at the end of June. I have also seen it and it is one loooong aircraft.

I just saw it take off at about 840p local, even at night what a site! Not being an Airbus fan....wow what a plane!

As739x, did you see it take off yesterday (31/03)? Then that was the same plane (D-AIHH) that I saw take off yesterday at MUC... that thing really is LONG!!! It is some sight... but I have to say that... I prefer Airbusses... Big grin

Happy contrails,

MUC-SFO will move all-A346 from June 8th, when MUC gets its 3 dedicated A340-600 based.

AS739X: Whats up? Yeah, its sure going to be great to see that looooooooong A346 over at the Intl. Terminal. She sure is a beauty. Cant wait to see EK's A345 here either.
