I thought the A340-500/600 has already been launched by Virgin and Air Canada. Maybe it is not official yet? I recall that both EVA and CAL signed LoI's for the B777, and the former was interested in the combi version. What does it mean in terms of level of commitment when airlines sign Letters of Intent (LoI)? A340's are probably great aircraft (many believe it has superior cabin noise levels), although I have only flown in the A330 among new generation airbuses. However, the cabin width is significantly less than that of the MD-11 and the B777. It will be interesting to see how EVA intends to configure those new airbuses, especially in Evergreen Deluxe since they had 2-3-2 in the MD11s. Well... regarding the B777-200X. The currency crisis affecting South East Asian nations might really hurt the Malaysia Airlines order (for 15 units, AFAIK), don't you think? I don't know if they signed any LoI or MoU or whatever. Best Regards.
