Swiss Airbus A340-300
The Airbus A340-300 is the new flagship of the SWISS fleet. The first of 12 new A340s joined the airline in July 2003. These aircraft will be used on the long haul network accommodating 8 First Class, 48 Business Class and 172 Economy Class passengers. This program features one of the routes operated by the A340 from its hub at Zurich to Bangkok and Singapore. You will follow the crew for 5 days on this trip to Asia. On several occasions they will make presentations about the route, the aircraft, its cockpit, systems, computers etc... Follow approaches in Bangkok, Singapore as well as an early morning nonstandard "noise abatement" arrival into Zurich's Kloten Airport which avoids overflying Germany.
