Since When Did The A340-300 Get LCD Displays?

I thought the 'older' models of the A340 had CRT screens. I didn't know there were any with LCD ones.

Is it an upgrade or just a newer aircraft?

I presume LCD has become the standard now?

Thanks.

Part of the A343E (Enhanced) program. When Airbus put LCD in the A345/A346, they carried the change over to the A343 and other Airbuses, in addition to some tweaks to the CFM56 powerplant and cabin improvements.
