Lufthansa postcard - Airbus A340-600

Name: Airbus A340-600
Manufacturer: Airbus Industries Europe (France/Germany)
Main Role: High capacity, long - very long range mainline jetliner
Basic design: Four engined, double aisle wide body jet. Airframe based on the A300.
Capacity: A340-600: 375 passengers
Range: 13700km
First delivery date: 2002
Still in production in 2008: Yes
Easily confused for: Airbus A330-300, IL-86, IL-96, DC-8, 707, 747
Main identifying points: Look for the "Airbus" cockpit windows, four large engines (larger than on the A340-200/300 version), large upward swept winglets & a classic Airbus tail & tail cone. Other than the 747 and IL86/96 it's one of the few 4-engined wide body jets around. If it has 4 engines and no hump on the front it's more than likely an A340. The IL86/96 is less common and is quite similar in shape but they have a very high pointy tail and a short less pronounced tail cone and are flown almost exclusively by Russian airlines. The A340-500/600 both have a 4 wheeled middle undercarriage along with the ones under each wing. The A340-600 has the longest fuselage of any standard airliner so hard to not identify. It's a stretched version of the -300/500
Examples of Main Operators: Lufthansa, Cathay Pacific, China Eastern, Thai, Virgin Atlantic, Iberia, South African so these planes are especially numerous in Frankfurt, Singapore, Hong Kong, Madrid, Johannesburg, Bangkok and London.
