I wondered the same thing. I think the answer is to keep the 333 in the same pax config as the 332 fleet so they can be rotated easily. With only 1 333, it would be difficult to provide backup if it went mechanical while in max seating of 400+.
The 333 incidently was procured 2nd hand (the TS 332's are new builds) and likely has a lower lease rate than the newer/heavier 332's.
I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.
