I just finnished reading airbus' press release. In one of their article, AI wrote that SIA(singapore airlines) will use its A340's in SIA's singapore-paris route. i remember that SIA cancelled its MD-11 orders becuase SIA wanted an aircarft to carry a 60000 lbs. in this route, but during actual test flight showed that a MD-11 can only carry 40000 lbs. Now, A340-300 has a range of 7300 nm, and paris-sing. is roughly 6600 nm. I think It would not be possible for the A340 to fly non-stop because of the strong headwinds. Can someone tell me if I am wrong?
