Their range is 12,600 km. They require 4,1 liter of fuel to carry one passenger 100 km with 4 Rolls Royce Trent 500 engines. The maximum take-off weight is 368,000 kg.

They seat 8 in first class, 60 in Business class and a maximum of 238 in economy class. Thay's a total of 306 seats in a Lufthansa Airbus A340-600.

Some Lufthansa A340-600 airlines can seat a total of 345 passengers, but these have no first class. They seat 66 in Business class and 279 in economy class.

These airliners should not be confused with the 27 smaller Lufthansa Airbus A340-300 airliners. And on top of that Lufthansa also flies 15 Airbus A330-300 airliners in 2009.

The Lufthansa long haul widebody fleet

This makes a total of 66 Airbus widebody long haul airliners used by lufthansa in 2009.

In 2009 Lufthansa still flies it's 30 Boeing 747-400 airlines from Frankfurt (FRA) with 16 first class seats, 80 business class seats and 234 economy class seats. Which makes a total of just 330 seats for these Jumbo Jets.

It seems that in 2009 Lufthansa flies almost 100 widebody airlines, which makes their widebody fleet around the size of that of Cathey Pacific. But Lufthansa operates them from 2 hubs (Frankfurt (FRA) and Munich (MUC)) while Cathey Pacific flies from it's Hong Kong (HKG) hub.

In 2009 none of the 15 Airbus A380-800 and 20 Boeing 747-800 intercontinental have been delivered to Lufthansa.
