But since you are so eager to know, here we go again:
In fact not much explenation is required because it was already posted somewhere in this topic, but I find the Airbus cabin way too cramped for such a large airliner. If you look at the window line you see how much they raised it just so they can fit larger LD-3's under there. Now I'm no cargo loader so my main concern is the cabin and that I don't like. Plus the cabin is very narrow compared to the competition which makes it even more cramped. But I guess they did that to increase the range.
Awful cockpit and systems:
I don't like that light blue, I don't like the side sticks and I don't like the flight systems. The side stick removes ANY feeling left that you're actually flying an airplane. The flight control systems have been extensively discussed on this forum and if you still want to know I'm sure you can find it somewhere on this forum. In fact the A320 had more OEB's than any other modern jetliners, although I'm sure they have been woked out by now.
So there it is. I think the A340 is a very sleek and beautiful airplane until you step into the office. That is a turboprop pilot's OPINION, which was asked for so kindly by Fly777ual.
