How could I tell the different between A330-200 and A330-330 ? Might be stupid asking this, but I really don't know. Thanks

The A330-200 is several frames shorter than the A330-300. This translate to longer range for the aircraft. I suggest you view photos of the A330-200 (like Canada3000, Air Transat) and compare them to the A330-300 (like that of LTU,MAS,TG). You will notice the differences.

10 (6+4) frames shorter and a broader fin.

Pay attention to the distance between the tip of the tail and the root if the rudder. It is shorter on the -200 because of the enlarged tail.

The A 330-200 is not only shorter is a real long distance airliner which can make Europe-LAX without problems.

The A330-200 is just shorter and has a larger tailfin, as already mentioned. The A330-200 also has a smaller exit no. 3.

....just to clarify, the small No. 3 exit is standard on all A330/A340 aircraft, the large exit is an option, which most airlines prefer to take........
