In one of the other topics I read that Emirates has or plans to cancel the A340-500 order. Is this true?

Might be hard to do with all the penalty payments, but more A332 with RR Trents, a small A32X order, and possibly an A3XX order would definitely do the trick.

Just one word: Bulls***. The rumoured 772LR order is to replace the current 772s. The A340-500 order is more likely to be expanded by converting some options, even possible this year.

Flown: A319/320/321,A332/3,A343/346, A380,AT4,AT7,B732/3/4/5/7/8/9,B742/4,B762/763,B772/77W,CR2/7/9/K,ER3/4,E70/75/90/95, F50/70/100,M11,L15,SF3,S20, AR8/1, 142/143,...
