I was watching tonights episode (quite a good one) and at one point one of the main characters comes back from Italy. They show a Alitalia A330 landing at what is supposed to be EWR. No clue which airport it was. Godbless airplanes in things that dont usually contain them.

Interesting. When Tony and crew went to Italy 2 seasons ago, they flew an Alitalia MD-11.

Ever notice the opening credits, an AA MD-80 and a AA 727!

It was an AZ A300, obviously old footage as they were retired some years ago. The footage was from an arrival in Italy, was definitely not EWR, nor a 767. You could tell not only by looking at the body, but the back of the wings (Flap fairings) indicated A300. As AZ does not have an A330, it was obviously not that either.

It was an old A300. Watch the encore presentation look at the wing, engines and landing gear.

Yep. It was an old A300 bringing good ol lovelorn Furio back from the old country. About 8 years ago, Alitalia operated A300s on some long haul routes including Rome-Kuwait-Bombay. I guess they may have been operated on transatlantic runs as well.

Definitely an A300. One spotting feature was the silver engine nacelles.

It was an A300. It said 'A300' on the forward fuselage.

Doesn't an airline affiliated with Alitalia fly the A330 in Alitalia colors? Volare Air or something like that

Eurofly operates a few leased A330-200's in AZ's scheme as they are part of Gruppo Alitalia.

Well, give them some credit. Granted, a present-day scene set at Newark with an Alitalia A300 isn't right on the money. But at least they used Alitalia. Most other shows would have had an approach shot of a 747, a rear landing shot of a DC-10 and a rollout shot of an Alaska Airlines MD-88 or something to depict this scene.
