Airbus A340-600 Airliner

An extra-stretched version of Airbus’ A340 series, the A340-600 is massive, measuring more than 39 ft longer than an A340-300, more than 13 ft longer than a Boeing 747-400, and 7.5 ft longer than an A380.

The A340-600 was offered as a replacement for early-model 747’s that were nearing the end of their service runs, offering room for up to 379 passengers and a range of 7,500 nautical miles (13,900 km). The similar passenger capacity, 25 percent more cargo volume, and lower trip and seat costs made it an attractive option for airlines until Boeing released the 777-300ER. Deliveries began in 2002, with a High Gross Weight (-600HGW) model introduced n 2005 that increased max takeoff weight to 380 tons and flight range up to 7,900 nautical miles.
