It's seems the 330F is getting some improvement quite fast after it's launch;

"Airbus is introducing a variable-weight capability for its A330-200 freighter, to provide the type's customers with the ability to transport a greater payload over certain routes.

The dynamic payload-range mode is to be unveiled formally by the airframer this week after it obtained approval to offer the option.

It will enables the twinjet to increase revenue payload by up to 2.5t over a specific range, around 3,200-4,000nm (5,930-7,400km), by "tuning" the zero-fuel weight over a 5t range."

I guess this is primarily a paper change right? So the frames that are already delivered can also take advantage of this?

I am amazed by the speed Airbus continous to develop their A330 portfolio. They keep on investing in this platform making it even more competitive. I guess the business case for this freighter just got even better.

To my knowledge, the A330-200F always offered a 65t payload with a design range of 7400km or a 70t payload with a design range of 5930km.

Yep, but you had one or the other option, now you can have both and select each on a flight basis

Isn't this an option that, on an non-computerized freighter, would have been "selected" manually by careful loading and piloting?

Whatever it is, it needed certifying.
