The A310-300 is the last of the pax examples that together with the A300-600R helped Emirates in becoming one of the fastest growing airlines since its formation in 1985.

They have recently upgraded their flight to Italy swapping the A330 for the B777-200ER first and now the 777-300 in three class configuration

Many thanks Zaphod (are you a fan of "Hitch Hiker's Guide?"!!)

I didn't think they'd be waiting that long for the A340-600s.

Are they actively looking for new aircraft, to support their expansion plans?
