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?

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!
