EmiratesA345: what picture? might be helpful to have a look at the photo....
So can't answer the specific question but any lower deck ULD that fits on an A340 should fit a 744.
No the bins don't stay with the same a/c. If you are on an inbound a/c and it has a fairly short turnaround you will probably see the outbound ULDs (especially for cargo) sitting waiting on the ramp when you arrive. The inbounds will generally get taken off, unloaded and then used for a later flight. They may even end up going on another carrier somewhere. managing ULD fleets is a bit of a task for any airline - they end up in all sorts of weird and wonderful places!
A colleague of mine was into BGW not long after the war ended for a recce and there next to the cargo warehouse was an LH
main deck container (an AMA
). Given the last time that LH
flew into BGW must have been several years before I wonder if LH
had just given up on ever getting it back.
Anyway, some enterprising US soldiers had turned it into a shower block!
