AirAsia X A340-300


On a recent trip to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia I passed through the Low Cost Carrier Terminal of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport. The LCCT is the hub of the budget carrier AirAsia (which is also the airline I took for Langkawi, my onward destination), and the airline has a kiosk in the terminal that sells die-cast planes. I've purchased this 1:400 Airbus A340-300 in AirAsia X livery. 

AirAsia X is the long haul twin of the airline, and it serves destinations to Asia and Australia. 


The Airbus A340-300, which started service in 1993, is a four-engined long-haul widebody airliner that can typically accomodate 295 passengers. The 3-abreast economy-class and mid-section business class configuration of AirAsia X can carry 327 passengers.
