Hi all,

I was wondering if someone could answer a question. I have flown on an
A340 several times now, and there has always been a problem with
something. Once, the reading lights didn't work properly; they would
turn on, but not turn off. A second time, none of the toilets worked,
and the flight was badly delayed. A third time, I got on the airplane,
and all the cabin lights kept going off and on. Some lights that looked
like emergency lights came on a few times.

What's the deal? Does the A340 have problems with its auxiliary power
units? Someone told me they did.
