    Is this a new addition to the fleet, didn't think brunei flew A340's, thought that they mainly used 767's?

    This is one of the Sultan's 'personal' aircraft, Andrew. There have a been a few. A couple of years ago, he had another A340 up for sale at the Dubai airshow that had apparantly been a gift to/from his daughter, or something. This one was painted in a greyish color scheme with similar cheatlines. The particular aircraft in this picture, I believe, is the prototype A340-200.

    [updated:LAST EDITED ON 08-08-02 AT 09:57 AM (GMT)]the BI A340-200 that you saw was the personal A340-200
    of the Sultan of Brunei. His 342 is painted in BI house
    colours and carries the registration V8-BKH.
    Appearantely he owns 2 x 342., but the other 342 is
    currently stored in Berlin SXF.

    The A340 sold at Dubai Airshow had nothing to do with Brunei. BI has also added a A319 lately.

    I personally hate that colour scheme! To me, and i dont know why, it reminds me of a mustard flavour packet of crisps or perhaps corn flavour. Anyway give my easyjet c/s any day

    Regards, Andrew
