I think neither UX or IB have the 242t A330-200. And IIRC, IB's in the middle of phasing out the A340. Or is it only the A340-300? Just the 300s, which are already gone. The 600s have been refitted with Y+ and will fly 3-7 years minimum depending on who you ask to. IB’s new A330s are indeed 242t, n...Jump to post

That could just as well be for an A339. Like I said in the other thread, it's a marketing press release. They are assembling parts that can be used on either model.

It only makes sense to compare one variant of A380, namely A388, to one variant of 747. 748 is definitely the right variant to compare to since it has to go throw the same market conditions that A388 has. 748 is more superior than 744 when it comes to technical specification, but 744 was far more s...Jump to post

Just out of curiosity, how much rework, cost, and recertification would be required to move the cockpit up?
