THIS IS A JOKE!!!!
Stern reports, that Airbus is planning to stretch the existing A340 by 11 metres. The new aircraft, named A340-600 would then be capable of transporting about 500 pax.
I won't quote more. Just add 11 metres to the A340-300 and you get.... EXACTLY! The A340-600!!!
Congratulations dear "Stern" magazine. You discovered a truly secret: Airbus is planning the A340-600. I wonder, if there could also be a market for a shortened version, called A340-500.
Oh, and BTW, I would see a market for a single aisle twin. Let's call it A320.
What a joke, these "Stern" reporters!!!
