"Missing Window" In Swiss A340 Configuration?

Wed Nov 30, 2011 11:09 am

Hey all,

in the old C-class configuration of the LX A-340, a window was missing in row 8.
Does anyone know at which row this would be in the new configuration?

Looking at a photo of the aircraft, it appears as though the deleted window is directly above the point where the wing starts.



If that is the case, then if the dimensions on the SeatGuru map is correct, then it would be at either row 6 or 7.

I thought it would be rows 8 or 9, as there are 6 windows after door 2L/2R...and only then is there a "gap"...on the old configuration seatguru stated it was row 8...

any Swiss guys can help us?

this is not a coincidence. this is the point where the forward wing spar is connected to the fuselage. have a look at other A343, it´s not just swiss

I know all A340s have it  

I also know that row 12 is the one on lufthansa that has only one instead of 2 windows.

My question is which row would that be on Swiss with the new business configuration?

The whole a330/a340 series is missing a window at that place, it's not just the a343.
It's better to be in the air wishing you were on the ground than being on the ground wishing you were in the air

Ok, so Swiss have this :missing: or misaligned window on all 330s and 340s.

Does anyone know where it is in the new c-class? Seems to be between rows 7-10 but can someone be a little more specific?
