Next, the a330neo
Quote:
First 242 tonne take-off weight A330 successfully completes first flight



The first 242 tonne Maximum Take-Off Weight (MTOW) variant of the A330 has successfully completed its maiden flight, landing back in Toulouse-Blagnac Airport following a 3 hours and 30 minutes flight.

Didier Evrard, Airbus Executive Vice President Head of Programmes said: “I congratulate the whole team in charge of the A330 242 tonnes weight variant for making this day happen ahead of schedule. We are on track to deliver this new higher weight variant in 2015 to launch customer Delta Air Lines, who will also be the launch customer for the A330neo.”

The A330 242 tonne MTOW is the platform for the future A330neo and is concrete example of Airbus’ incremental innovation strategy. The newest enhancement offers more capability at lower operating cost with a range extended by up to 500 nautical miles and up to two percent reduced fuel consumption while also benefiting from operational reliability of above 99 percent. The 242 tonne MTOW is capable of flying missions up to 15 hours.

Hi All,

I don't normally come to this side of the forums much... so excuse my ignorance

I am flying from London Heathrow to NY JFK with Virgin Atlantic (economy) in April time. It's a direct flight on an Airbus A330. I've never flown with Virgin nor have I have I ever been on an A330! Does anybody have any tips or experiences?

I've flown with Air France on their A380 from Paris to LAX in economy and that was just amazing. Everything about it was enjoyable.

I'd appreciate it if I got some feedback! Thanks guys!

I can give you a first glimpse of Virgin's A330...


Virgin Atlantic A330-300 (reg. G-VGEM)



Seat map

As for passenger experience on the A330, I would say that it is a comfortable aircraft to be in, especially if you do long-haul. It is not that bulky as an A380 or B747, nor as cramped as a B757... if you ride on one in Asia, though, you'll see how popular of an aircraft it is.

Two A332s from SYD...

Qantas A330-200, revised livery (reg. VH-EBH)


China Eastern A330-200, revised livery (reg. B-5961)


You will notice that Asian and Oceania carriers use this type (and the A333) a lot.
