None of those numbers match the AC configuration I stated, none of those numbers are for the (0 FC + 31 JC + 265 YC) version at AC, it has a manufacturers empty weight of 156.1t, and manufacturers OEW of 160.9t.
I did not intend for them to be representative of AC but of what Airbus is offering in general. As I stated I can not disclose that kind of specific operator information and will not do so. In point of fact I do however have to question your figures as the current AC A340-500 configuration as I know it is 225 Y and 42 F for a total of 267...The configuration you spoke of, "31JC 265 YC" seems more like the current config for their A340-300's...Additionally no one I'm aware of flying A340-500's now has a "300" seat configuration.
If you are able to and do not mind, would you disclose some more specific info from the source material you are using?
