I agree. Brown is a color you almost never see in a livery these days, so it's refreshing to see them incorporate it in a way that exhibits their island as well.

Qantas engines are not the same with China Southern and Cathay. What are the differences?

There are 3 engine options for the A330.

- General Electric CF6-80E1
- Pratt & Whitney PW4000
- Rolls-Royce Trent 700

3 different engine manufactures, 3 different designs. The RR engines are easily recognizable since they have a completely covered nacelle, with the GE and the P&W engines you can see part of the engine nozzle. The Qantas A330s have the GE engines. Noticable P&W operators are Korean Air and Malaysian.

So, to confirm Fiji Airways' new A330 services...

Fiji Airways will start operating its new A330-200 on the Nadi-Sydney route on 8 June 2013, with 6 weekly flights. It will then be progressively introduced on other long-haul and regional routes as well. Details:

Nadi – Sydney eff 08JUN13 Up to 6 weekly
FJ911 NAN0900 – 1145SYD 332 x5
FJ910 SYD1300 – 1850NAN 332 x5

Note: above schedule will see A332 service decrease to 3-4 weekly starting 1 July 2013.

Nadi – Auckland 21APR13 – 31AUG13 FJ411/410 Daily (Gradual reduction to 4-5 weekly from 05JUL13. “74E” coded flights reappears from 19JAN14, replacing 744)

Nadi – Brisbane 21APR13 – 31JUL13 FJ923/922 5-6 weekly

Nadi – Hong Kong 04JUL13 – 31AUG13 2 weekly (“74E” coded flights re-appear from 20JAN14, where overall operation increases to 3 weekly)

Nadi – Los Angeles eff 01JUL13 2-3 weekly (From 17JAN14, all LAX flights displaying aircraft code “74E”)

Nadi – Melbourne 03AUG13 – 27AUG13 2 weekly

Notes:
- Since December 2012/January 2013, Fiji Airways has loaded flights operated by aircraft code 74E (747-400COMBI), with configuration of C24Y249 that is identical to A330-200. Following flights are currently displaying “74E”, which is believed to change to “332″ at a later date, although further revision on operational days and dates remain likely.
- Last Fiji Airways “744″ coded flight (Boeing 747-400) is around mid-January 2014

I don't know. If TunisAir gets its A330, I suspect that it will first be operated to Paris-Orly, if not CDG. Plus, it might end up operating to Dubai and Mumbai.

How many orders would that be, and how many options? If that's the case, that'll be another Maghreb operator of one of Airbus' more successful aircraft.

Simple reason: Airbus wants to give airlines choices in terms of engine make, which in turn can affect an aircraft's range, weight, and capabilities. The same reasoning goes with nearly every modern aircraft produced: there will be at least two engine options that will affect an aircraft's speed, operational performance, and range.

^

What you have said is generally true, but there are exceptions.

The A350 XWB only has one engine type. But this is because Airbus could not come to an agreement with any engine makers other than Rolls Royce.
The second exception is the Boeing 777-300ER, GE has an exclusivity agreement with Boeing.

This is apparently the reason why Airbus could not persuade GE to build a new engine for all variants of the A350.
