How Soon Will AC's A340-500/600s Enter Service?

Tue Jun 27, 2000 6:43 am

I know well that Air Canada has ordered several A340-500s and -600s. But what I'd like to know is how many of each variant? How soon will these planes enter service in AC colors? And what about any more A340-300s?

The next 330-300 comes next month, I believe, and they will continue taking deliveries of them.

The 340-300's, I don't know if they have any more orders, but the kept on some leased aircraft there were supposed to be returned when the 330's started coming, so I guess you could say that fleet has grown.

They have 3 + 2 of the 340 -600's and -500's on order, but rumours have been that they would increase that to 10 of each.

Just checked delivery dates, the first 340-600 arrives in March 2002, the first -500 in August of 2002.
