A340 Customers?

Wed Feb 17, 1999 8:09 am

What airlines have the Airbus A340 I know that these airlines have the aircraft:

Air Canada
Virgin Atlantic Airways
Lufthansa Airlines
Air France
Iberia Airlines
Turkish Airlines
Singapore Airlines
Philippine Airlines
Cathay Pacific Airways
Austrian Airlines
Sabena Airlines

I know alot of other airlines have the A340 so what are they? I think when the A340-500 and A340-600 are made we are going to see alot more A340's around the world ! But the 747 will always be the "queen of the skies"

Air Lanka- Sri Lanka
Emirates- U.A.E. (A340-500/600---either one)

I believe, also that in the near future Ansett Australia, and Air New Zealand are axpected to order the A340-300 with their link up with Singapore.

Does Asiana have orders for the new A340's? I can't remember.

You'll have to add Swissair to the list soon. They've opted to dispose of their MD-11's to FedEx. This was a decision made prior to the crash off of Nova Scotia

Air New Zealand and Ansett Australia will not be ordering the A340-500/600 ANZ operates and expanding fleet of 747-400s and Ansett is replacing their 747-300s with 747-400s from SIA. The 747 is the KING of the skies with the 777 being the Queen.
