Are the new A340-500/600 series engines going to be a lot more powerfull than the powerplants on the 200/300 series?
The 500/600 will be a great aircraft im sure, but if it can have a faster cruise speed than the 200/300 series that would be a bonus.
It seems to me, going by other peoples opinions on this forum that the A340-200/300 series is a very well liked aircraft, except for its engine power. If the 500/600 series comes with a more beefier powerplant, it should be very well recieved in the market.
I am yet to fly a A340-200/300 but I flew a CX A333 last year in Perth, which was an awesome aircraft.
Also, is it true that the new A340-500/600 will be the longest COMMERCIAL passenger aircraft in the world? Taking over the 773 in length?
