Can BLR take a A346? BOM was having problems handling VS A346s.
|Quoting Pe@rson (Reply 11):|
The 346 can actually carry more cargo than the 744...
|Quoting Gigneil (Reply 6):|
I am stunned by LH's ability to profitably manage, what, 4 different fleets of A340-600s?
|Quoting Eyeonthesky17 (Reply 14):|
The FRABLR flight has needed additional C class capacity for some time now. Good to see LH answering the call. I wish we had an 346 out at JFK. That woudl be quite a sight.
|Quoting OldAeroGuy (Reply 12):|
Is this still true for LH's A346 with lower lobe lavs? They displace a lot of LD3's.
|Quoting Trex8 (Reply 16):|
A346 can carry 42 LD3s, 744 32, It looks to me like the lavs should displace at least 6-8 LD3s as each is 60in , take or leave a little, wide and the lavs look like they need about the equivalent of 6 rows of seats.But anyone know the actual numbers???
|Quoting OldAeroGuy (Reply 17):|
You also need to account for the stairway and the galley stowage.
|Quoting Qantas744ER (Reply 15):|
but the A346 is not a welcome aircraft in JFK because of taxiway problems...

|Quoting Cricket (Reply 9):|
I would think not, it might be a tight squeeze, but then again, it can take a 744, so a 346 won't be too bad,
|Quoting Karan69 (Reply 8):|
That is awesome news for the Banglorians, but as i have read the loads on the BLR-FRA sector can easily handle a daily 744.
|Quoting AirbusfanYYZ (Reply 22):|
Lots of empty seats in recent months on the BLR-FRA sector. Late last year several flights even had empty J class cabins. This from people who flew several trips with LH, YYZ-FRA-BLR-FRA-YYZ in Nov. and Dec.
|Quoting AlitaliaMD11 (Reply 19):|
Not true. Iberia, Cathay Pacific, and Iberia operate the A340-600 regulary into JFK.
|Quoting Nimish (Reply 24):|
However, BLR is quite capable of 747s (at least 1-2 cargo 747's every day), so hopefully the 346 should not be a problem.
