BTW do you have more details on the FRA - TLV loads and the reasons wat lead to the downgrade from A346 to A343 on the night flight starting with winter timetable?
it the winter months there is no need for 66 business seats, but for some First Class seats! This will open up A346 availability to other high performing routes.

I personally see an A333 just as too big for such a shuttle route, but there were people who thought this was the best option for replacing the AB6 on domestic shuttle routes and routes to LHR.
I can calm you down! The A333 is already used on domestic routes since few weeks. Last Saturday the KWI inbound made two FRA
turnarounds. The weeks before LH964/965 (FRA
-MUC) was also operated by A333 for some days (most times the KWI or BOS
And a statement to all A300 detractor: what do you need more on 3-4hrs flight???
PTV? lie-flat seat? a personal assistant?
I even don't call such routes long-haul! FRA
-CAI / TLV
are not more than 4hrs. The old BMED routes from LHR
to the ME are much longer (up to 7hrs!!!) and are operated by A32x family and nobody is complaining.
