Proposed A340-200 development with 4(?) LD3 containers replaced by fuel tanks
in cargo forward and aft of wing. Range in excess of 8,000nm with A340-200
payload.

Max capacity (exit limited): 440
Two class seating: 375
Three class seating: 310
Range with two class seating (A model): ~4500nm
Range with three class seating (B model): ~6500nm

Proposed stretch of 777-200. Length exceeds that of 747-400. Increases three
class seating to 375. I would guess the stretch would have an extra pair of
exits increasing max seating (exit limited to 550).

Not sure about this, perhaps someone else can give some details.

Hope that helps
