Reading up on the forum a little, liking posts, and getting likes are the best ways to upgrade your trust level.
please do not get me wrong😉, but it is a Airbus A340-600
The -300 has CFM 56 engines which are really quite smaller and the climb performance is rather poor compared to the -600. By the way, there is a joke about the performance of the -300:
do you know, why the 300 is able to climb? - because the earth beneath it is a ball and moves away from the plane as it starts to fly
The -600 used to be the longest passenger aircraft in the world until the Boeing 747-800 appeared.
Gotta love sunset/sunrise…
Long live the DC-9!
