just for a correction 4R-ALM is 330-300(not 330-340)

I think this is written not by chinwi as I saw he had advanced knowledge about this field.


for some one interested
With Airbus you don't have customer codes, the model numbers are simply related to Aircraft version and Engine type.

The first number of the code (eg A320-211) indicates the series of aircraft ie.
A320-100 series
A320-200 series

The second number of the code (eg A320-211) indicates engine types ie.
0=GE Engines eg A330-303
1=CFM Engines eg A320-214
2=PW Engines eg A330-222
3=IAE Engines eg A321-231
4=RR Engines eg A330-243

The final number (eg A320-211)indicates improvements within an aircradft series, a higher number often indicates higher MTOW or something like that ie
A320-211 has lower MTOW than
A320-214

This is also why if an aircraft is re-engined, it's model number changes. Also, if it undergoes some sort of modification it's model number changes, eg modification from A310-324 to A310-325.

Sorry I got that image and info from that forum and posted without checking the number.


They build aircraft elsewhere and bring them to Châteauroux for painting after doing main test flights.
As far as I know, these images were taken by a SriLankan living there.

He has make it a 330-340 by mistake.

Flying halfway painted means they do test flights while painting ?

In fact, we introduced flying to the World.
Unfortunately, the airline and or the Ad agency were not capitalize on that very fact.

Normally Airbus paints aircraft tail fin (vertical stabilizer) before they do test flights.

If you understood where I was aiming, I think it was still qualified to be flying. Very Happy

As far as I know these new A330s can’t be flown to London (or any other long distance) from Colombo with the max passenger capacity. 
-300 has higher passenger cap hence lower the range (if it’s full). Also -300 range is lower than -200.
 
They will have to find ways to do this until get the A350-900

@Hybrid, answer for the "Why SRI Lanka was not better than Singapore" is Sri Lanka was ruled by wrong hands. All the governments try to control educated peoples. You can clearly understand if you look at our parliment members education.

Need to do a big correction. Stop electing useless peoples for parliment and other placess. Still I dont think half of the peoples in Sri Lanka thinking about the country. They only going back of party or person.

True! Good point. Checked and found that in fact new aircraft are weight-restricted on CMB/LHR sector. Laughing
