 A330-?

 Ok so I think I understand Boeing's logic in model numbers, being customer specific and all. Can anyone explain the variations in model numbers on A330s and A340s? A lot of Cathay Pacific's are A330-343s, but some are 343Xs. US Airways are A330-323X, but Northwest's upcoming ones are just A330-323s. Qantas is getting one A330-203, the rest are 202s. Is there a method to the madness? N

 No madness, just method!   The first digit (e.g. (-2xx) denotes the series The second digit (e.g. -x4x) denotes the engine manufacturer (GE=0, CFM=1, PW=2, IAE=3, RR=4 - please correct me, if I am wrong with the allocation) The third digit (e.g. -xx1) is - bluntly speaking - the version of the respective series. X denotes upgrades MTOW etc. Some examples: LH operates some A320-211. These are early-model -200 series with CFM56 engines. Condor operates A320-214. These are later model -200 also with CFM engines. An A330-343X is a RR-powered -300 series A330 with an increased MTOW and some refinements over earlier -341 or -342 series aircraft. Hope this helps and I didn't get too much wrong.

 ROP, The last two letters on Boeings are their customer numbers. D7 is Thai, 36 is BA, 22 UAL etc. This has been discussed a number of times before. Try searching under "Boeing codes"

 @TriStar500 Just a minor correction here TriStar, the third digit identifies the sub-version of the engine not the airframe´s. I.e: A310-304 has a CF6-80C2A2 engine A310-308 has a CF6-80C2A8 engine Same happens with all the other engine brands.. Rgds, Renato
