How much more range have 340-313E compared to 340-311, or is it just better engines?? Great looking 3 class config on MK 343...woow!

Thx

I think the A340-300E version has slightly more powerful engines and slightly more advanced cockpit but I'm not sure about this. What I do know is the engines are more powerful.

Would have been a nice opportunity to also introduce a new colorscheme.

I would like to see more orders for the 340-300E's before the A350XWB launch.

I hope AY and MK will be not the last ones.

Agree. This one is very boring, old. An update is nearly mandatory.
Time flies! Enjoy life!

I agree about MK´s livery, very dull (Interflug in the 60´s)

I heard that MK are to sell/lease their 767´s. Anyone know more about this?

Cheers
