I was just replying to his question, sorry not to have read back the first post of this topic, even if I know it's unforgivable.

Anyway, back to the topic.

First a332 cargo for the Americas with Tampa Cargo (Colombian), they ordered 4 meant to replace their 767 fleet.

Nice picture and that's a really nice tail indeed

As for the interior...

The IFE is AVOD.

I gotta say the 787s would've looked really nice with this livery, but the A330s aren't too shabby.
Woow. The C-class for Fiji is just same as in C-class on SQ

That looks much more modern than the B763Fs the airline replaced. And believe me: that aircraft could fly a bit further than its predecessor, and I don't know if it burns less fuel than the 76F to start with.

Question: is the A332 to only variant to have a freighter version, or does A333 have a freighter version too?

Airbus only builds the A330-200F.

But last year Airbus signed a deal with ST Aerospace for an A330 passenger-to-freighter conversion program.
http://www.flightglobal.com/news/art...eement-372087/

This program will start with an A333 conversion that should enter service in 2016, later there should also be A332 conversions.

Some critics say this conversion program might hurt the already slow sales for the A332F (52 orders to date) and that it would hurt the value of the A332F that are already delivered. Others say it's actually a good move to finally regain some ground in the freighter market that is dominated by Boeing. Since there are not many passenger A300s left that can be converted not starting the A330 conversion program would have meant that Airbus would only have the new A332F and nothing else in this market. Where Boeing has the 767-300F, the 767-300 conversion, the 777-200F, the 747-400 Conversion and the 747-8F. And there has been talk for several years about a 777 conversion program, if Boeing would launch it now their freighter program would even be more diverse.

What's the purpose of this "belly" above the nose landing gear? Structural reinforcement of the gear which then needs more place or something like that?

The nose gear on the passenger A330 is shorter than the main gear which means the nose points down slightly when the plane is on the ground.

For the cargo A330 airbus decided to mount the nose gear slightly lower down in order to remove the nose down condition. The consequence of this is that the gear no longer fits into the well so the blister fairing is needed.

Somehow related to the A330.

Airbus started to study options for the beluga operations two years ago, with the purpose to significantly increase the production rate.
The a300 beluga is suposed to leave the fleet in 2025 but in the mean time, they will have to double their flight time.
Also, the beluga won't have to fly to mobile as it has been decided that it will be shiped.

Question for you: which A330 livery is the best... And worst? Same question goes for its interiors and seats.

If the main constraint of the Beluga replacement is the length of the companies runway, you wonder why they couldnt do a A380 scaled 50% down from a max payload weight of 200t to 100t (twice the Beluga capacity), should stop and take off on a dime keeping the same wings and engine, fuselage is already the right dimensions so only requires minor alteration and landing ramp, landing gears would be well within tolerance. You could even shorten the wings to a more manageable size for the airfield without a performance hit. Instead their thinking of scaling an A330-200 down by around 20%.

lol
