Hi all

I remember a while back a post on a possible A340 UC refresh


I am on one for a trip to NYC late July and just wondered if anything more than the subtle touches noted in the post occurred? Looking at recent data 3 different A340's have operated the VS9 service i am on (G-VWEB, G-VBUG and G-VFIT). There is an odd A333 or 787 thrown in to mix it up...

I think there is some sort of refresh going on. There is a note on the VS website saying that USB power will be added to the 346s in 2017. Looking at VS Source, 2 of them (VFIZ and VFIT) spent a few weeks at Manila maintenance in January and February suggesting more than a regular maintenance check. VYOU is there now.

Someone on here will know better.

The UC suites were being re-upholstered, no changes to the IFE or cabin layout though. For Economy I believe they were updating the seats, putting in USB ports, etc.

In October the Economy seats were the same as the 787, they had a USB port but the same old IFE. No changes in prem eco as far as I could see. G-VRED I think it was.
