And 35 min taken to F350 with a full load CDG-HEL . . . . it could sure come down though . . . and Eco cruise Mach , certainly at 2000 fuel prices, beginning with a 6. Wing was thick but totally intolerant of icing, 2 hull losses due to take off with contamination proved that beyond doubt.
It was ahead of its time for nuisance warnings though, ping, ping ping, ping ping ping anyone.
The ones I flew had only a Loo in the back too, made for one of my most uncomfortable approaches , following holding, and subsequent taxy-in at CDG, couldn't force myself to park up on the taxiway and make the walk of shame. We had to wait for the parking stand too.

Made an interesting 1yr interlude in a 30 yr Boeing career though, till the bank pulled the plug 9 days after 9 11.
