  Airbus A340 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The first published studies for the A340 were as the TA11 in 1981, in the November issue of Air International (coinciding with the display of the A300 at that year's Farnborough Air Show).
Airbus' engineers designed the A340 in parallel with the twin-engined A330: both aircraft share the same wing and similar fuselage structure, and borrow heavily from the advanced avionics developed for the A320.
One of two initial versions of the A340, the A340-200, with 261 passengers in a three-class cabin layout has a range of 7,450 nautical miles (13,000 km).

 Widebody Aircraft Parade Pictures: Airbus A340
The Airbus A340 is a large widebody aircraft for long-range flights.
Airbus launched the A340 in June 1987 in parallel with the A330, as a single aircraft program: the A340 with four engines and the A330 with two.
The A340 is a competitor of the McDonnell Douglas MD-11 and the Boeing 777.

 Aircraft-Info.net - Airbus A340-200 Information
The A340 and closely related A330 were launched in June 1987, with the A340's first flight occurring on October 25 1991 (an A340-300).
The A340 shares the same flightdeck including side stick controllers and EFIS, plus flybywire, basic airframe, systems, fuselage and wing with the A330 (the flightdeck is also common to the A320 series).
The twin-engine A330 and the four-engine A340 were developed as a medium-capacity widebody family of aircraft for regional, long range, and ultra- long range routes.

 Digital Cameras - Fujifilm FinePix A340 Digital Camera Test Images
The A340 Zoom's lens is equivalent to a 38-114mm zoom on a 35mm camera.
The A340 Zoom's flash throttled down a bit too much for the macro area (probably fooled by the reflection from the brooch), and creates an uneven exposure.
The Fuji A340 Zoom produced clear, bright, usable images only down to the one foot-candle (11 lux) light level, a light level that corresponds to that of typical city street lighting at night.

 A340: US Carriers [Archive] - Airwise Discussion Forum
On a personal level, I tend to like the A340 since they are the closest thing to the old 707 jets I grew up seeing flying all over the US (A340 also have 4 engines on the wings....very rare to see 4 winged engines nowadays except on 747 and DC-8 cargo jets).
I flew A340 on AF and SQ and B777 on UA, SQ, CX and AA.
I flew AF first class on the A340 and I must say that the cabin is too small for my liking, indeed there are only six seats in a 2x2x2 configuration, and the galley is in the front, so I found it noisy.

 Digital Cameras - Fujifilm FinePix A340 Digital Camera Review, Information, Specifications
The Fuji A340 carries on the value-leading tradition of Fuji digital cameras by offering a 4.0-megapixel CCD and 3x optical zoom lens at a low price, and including a longer maximum exposure time of two seconds and four preset scene modes.
The Fuji FinePix A340 is equipped with a 3x, Fujinon lens equivalent to a 38-114mm lens on a 35mm camera.
The A340 Zoom had no trouble with the subtle pastel tones on the Q60 target of the Davebox, and shadow detail was typically moderate.

The Airbus A340 family of wide-bodied four engine airliners is optimised for long range to ultra long range performance and is in service with dozens of airlines worldwide for non-stop long-haul services.
The A340 has a four unit landing gear arrangement, with two sets of landing gear under the wings and two centreline landing gears, with the nose wheel unit and one on the centre line half way along the fuselage.
The fuselage of A340 is mainly constructed of high strength aluminium alloy with some structures of advanced composite materials.

The A340 (here shown with its floppy drive door open) doesn't have to stand on the swing-out feet on one of its sides; you can also lay it down, like a normal desktop case.
The A340 comes with these bundled-together, semi-rounded cables, which are essential if you want to be able to get a full complement of components into this tiny case without sitting on it to get it closed.

Designed as a four-engined long-range complement to the A330, the A340 competes primarily with Boeing's 777 and 747.
The A340 shares many features with the A330, including the same fuselage, landing gear, tail assembly, flight deck, and basic wing.
The first two major versions of the A340 are the basic A340-300 and the extended-range A340-200.

 A340 Maintenance Evolution
The first flight of the A340-300 in October 1991 was a seminal moment for Airbus, for that aircraft made it a contender in the long-haul market which, hitherto, had been pretty much Boeing's domain.
According to Fremont, the A340 systems designers quickly saw the potential in extending MTP connections to all flight systems and collating their data centrally.
When the A340 entered service in 1993, A-check intervals were baselined at 400 flight hours and C check intervals at 15 months.

 Airdisaster.Com Forums - 747-400 faster than A340 ?
When I went to Mauritius 2 weeks ago, our AF 747-400 took off 25 minutes after the A340 of Air Mauritius and we land 11h10 after, 25 minutes before it, probably the cruise speed of the boeing is faster than the Airbus.
Not entirely clear of the reasons for this, as the intrinsic performance of the A340 should be at least as good, say, as a 767.
I made an A340 flight in a full-flight simulator with MTOW and found that 2400+ fpm are no problem once cruising configuration is set.

 Aviation Video: Airbus A340-300 - Air France
The Airbus A340 is a long-range widebody commercial passenger airplane manufactured by Airbus.
At the time the newest long-range widebody, the twinjet Boeing 767, was at a disadvantage against aircraft such as the 747 because of the ETOPS problem: two-engined aircraft have to stay within close range of emergency airfields in case one of their engines malfunctions.
The A340-313X is a heavyweight version of the A340 and was first delivered to Singapore Airlines in April, 1996.

The 15,740km (8500nm) ultra long range A340-500 and stretched 372 seat A340-600 are new variants of the Airbus A340 family, and are currently the world's longest range airliners.
The A340-500 meanwhile is stretched by only 3.19m (10ft 6in) compared with the A340-300, and so seats 313 in three classes, but it has a massive range of 15,740km (8500nm), which makes it the longest ranging airliner in the world, capable for example of operating Los Angeles-Singapore nonstop.
The other change to the A340 airframe is the use of the A330-200 twin's larger fin and enlarged horizontal area stabilisers.

 Aerospace Technology - Airbus A340-600 Airliner
The Airbus A340-600 is the largest of the Airbus jetliners and is a super-stretched version of the A340 family of aircraft.
The flight deck on the A340-600 is almost identical to that of the basic A340 and there is very little difference between the operating procedures of the two aircraft.
As a consequence any pilot qualified to fly the A340 will need only one or two days briefing to be flight rated for the A340-600.

NEW YORK (AP) — The Air France jetliner that burst into flames while landing in Toronto is the first A340 plane to crash since the craft was introduced by manufacturer Airbus more than a decade ago.
The A340 has never crashed since it was introduced for commercial service in 1992, the spokeswoman, Barbara Kracht, said, speaking by telephone from Toulouse, France.
The plane is a very popular "workhorse" among carriers serving Asian and trans-Atlantic routes, with a very good safety record, said Chris Yates, an aviation specialist with Jane's Transport magazine.
