There's a topic saying it, although the type of aircraft it is not mentioned.
Good news for the A330 program, not shadowed by the A350. In 2005 the A330 has been ordered by Air Caraibes, Kingfisher, Jet Airways, Qatar, GECAS, Air China and Northwest, not bad. Don't you think so?
On the other hand, would have been great that the order was for the A380.

It was a matter of when, CZ would place a follow-on order to the intial A330 order. With continued expansion of the Chinese market domestically and int'lly they could use the plane in the near future.
Anybody know which type will be involved: -200 or -300 and will be they be powered by RR (same powerplant that are on the delivered A332s). I would figure to be RR since Mr. Blair is visiting.

The A330 is wonderful and a very capable and very photogenic airplane. By far the best widebody in Airbus' lineup... at least this is my opinion but certainly shared by many.
It's nice to see that Airbus can continue do well considering the new products such as 787 and A350. I still think and even though no matter what Airbus says... the A330 days are numbered for bigger and better things... The A350.
