The A340's have the oldest cabin in TAP's fleet and the reason is that they are expected to leave the fleet as soon as the A339's start arriving.

Re: Did DL, UA, or AA Ever Come Close To Ordering The A380 or 748?

There was a lot of talk about UA ordering the A380's and I don't think that was all just rumors. At the turn of the century, with its NRT hub and heavy TPAC routes, it was not out of the realm of possibility for it to happen. However, I think the timing was all wrong. When the A380 was officially la...
