And finally, the trip back to the USA!

Deliberately stayed on for a few more days, just for the A340-600 experience, and I enjoyed it!

Really nice TR! The video version was excellent as well.
This report rekindled some memories from my flight on Lufthansa from BLR to FRA (on the longest passenger plane in the world) on the very same day Smile

On the documents, surprising indeed!
I've been asked to submit a host of documents: right from my I20 to my college ID card and even my admission letter!

Thank you for the shout-out, Sir!
Another lovely trip report.
The time of your flight at my home airport: I have seen the scene around that time for a long time now, and can absolutely relate to all the goings-on.
I have never been on the A340 in any of its avatars, and reading this trip report increased my longing to snatch a flight on one of these long and graceful birds before they are retired.
You call a Calzone+cake+sparkling wine a decent meal? Hmm...
It is also nice that you mention the AI A332s...I have many a memorable trip on those well-maintained birds, and found the lower deck washroom complex quite nice. It is nice that you remember the seating area!
The breakfast certainly looked better, but then, I will still crib about the overall quantity!
Lovely sunrise pictures!
Thank you for a lovely TR, again.
Cheers, Sumantra.

- My favourite aircraft. Never been in one I might add Razz
- I love the wing root view when you board an Airbus wide body, I guess Iíll have to pay more attention on my next 777 flight.
- A great IFE on LH Shocked hehehehe thatís good to hear
- The dinner snack looks quite bad, but at that time of night I guess canít complain to much. As long as they didnít call that Ďdinnerí or maybe the purser did Confused
Great TR have lots more to read

Huh, that's interesting! You should fly on the neighbor's A346 before they're retired too! Razz

Biased, are we? LOL!

RAVE IFE on the A333, A346 and B744 is pretty solid. The same can't be said about the flagship A380 and B748 aircraft.
