Cabin flexibility

 Beneath its main deck, the A340-300’s large cargo holds provide voluminous capacity to maximize operators’ revenue potential.  With large cargo doors as basic fit, they take industry-standard LD3 containers in side-by-side loading.  The jetliner’s forward hold accommodates six 96-inch pallets or 18 LD3 containers, while the aft hold accepts 14 LD3s (or a mix of three 96-inch pallets and two 88-inch pallets).
