Although no scheduled airline fly certain aircraft on a route, sometimes private and royals who use that type can visit a city. It doesn't happen often, so it can slip up on you. For example in Pittsburgh we never had an A340 until 4 May 2002 when my brother got his B.A. and Queen Rania of Jordan came to speak at his graduation.
Don't know about non-airline operators of the A330, or SEA for that matter, but those are your variables to take into consideration.
By the way, you sure are on top of those hot pictures, always there to capture the moment. Keep up the good work!

It may be the first A330 in a while, it's not the first into SEA. I recall seeing a couple Airtours 330s going in 2 or 3 years ago (used to live downtown and spent a great deal of time on the balcony with binoculars).

Damm NW for bringing the A333 into Seattle! It sure looks sweet but honestly I thought I would never seen an Airbus A330 in Seattle! I hated it when SAS started A340-300 flights into SEA now we have NW flying the A330.
