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?

No madness, just method!  Smile

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. Big grin

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
