Quoting trex8 (Reply 4):
there were plans before the economic slowdown of 10/month
I remember that. Then they shelved the increase, mistakenly in my opinion. When customers are buying your product - at least some of them - because the alternative product is delayed, I think it make more sense to be able to offer delivery of your product ASAP. In that scenario, the faster you produce and deliver, the more orders you should attract.
BTW won't A330 production rise automatically as the A340 becomes rarer and rarer on the production line?

IIRC the production rates of 10/month etc referred to combined A330 and A340. In any case given there have probably been only what maybe a dozen or less A340s delivered annually in the last few years there will be a rise in A330 production but obviously not a huge one.
