Posky A330's Underpowered?

Well, I must say that I love the new A330's POSKY has come out with, however, they seem just a touch underpowered. The POSKY 777's are a rocket and can climb to FL340 or so on full fuel with ease at about 1800 fpm. The A330 on the other hand will only climb successfully on full fuel at 800 fpm (which is the default rate of climb). Then, to get it above FL300, its pretty much full power the whole way. Any way to make it more powerful? Or is this how it is in reality?

Try asking in the Posky forum at avsim.BTW I can't even reach FL310 in an A330!

According to them and an A330 pilot, that is what it is in real life. Airbus heavies are always less powerful than their Boeing counterparts. But Imagine how hard it will be to climb with POSKY soon to come A340!

Im next to LHR and I regularly hear AF 330s requesting 360 out of CDG!Some 777s stay at 320 so it does vary

I find the new POSKY 767's to be underpowered. With only 10% fuel, I had to have my engines at 95% N1 to maintain a speed of Mach .76. I also stalled the A332 at FL280, climbing at 800fpm.
