Dunno where You found a 330-100 mentioned at all...

Airbus homepage does not mention it ...

Besides, all development should be at the 3xx ?

Well, sure, to replace lots of aging 300´s, a 330-100 would hit the spot, since the 300-600 has an "uncommon" flight deck and "old-tech" wings. The 330-200 is simply too big for several customers (including e.g. Lufthansa, who flies 340´s only in addition to 300-600R´s)

Hope someone of Airbus´ executives has the brain to propse it.

I doubt the 331 will ever see the day. When you "shrink" an a/c, it loses some of its effeciency, i.e. its empty weight becomes too important. Airbus admits that this is a problem with the 318 (it makes sense for an airline to buy 318 if it already operates some 319,320,321; otherwise, most airlines will be better off buying 717).

I think they should come up with a 310 Next Generation instead (new avionics, fbw, new engines, new wing design, etc). There is a gap in the market now for a modern, twin aisle, 180-220 pax a/c. All of that being said, of course, IMHO.



Never let the facts get in the way of a good theory.

It is a design that Airbus has been studying for a while now. They have this aircraft and another version, both are derivatives and both are aimed at replacing the A300/A310. Flight International and Aviation week ran articles about this(these) aircraft within the past few months. I suggest you inquire about receiving copies of those back issues.

It is an aircraft that Airbus are throwing up to domestic carriers as a short-medium range widebody. It has been found that since the production of the A300/310 stopped, Boeing took over the market with their B767-200/300's. The A330-200 and A340 are too big and engineered for far too-longer distance to be economically viable on shorter domestic sectors.

At this stage it is just a "what if we did this" suggestion to carriers rather than anything that is set in stone for production.

B727-200.
