Re: Goodbye Tahiti- 343's leave 24 Sept

Saw one a few days ago in Auckland. By far the best looking aircraft around. Surprising they operated those gas guzzlers for so long. Also surprising that they are flying 787-9 and not A350-900. The A340-300 is not a gas guzzler. No? What was it that caused death by 777 for the 340-200/300/500/600,...
