I have read this many times. Most recently about a week ago in some article I think in the Daily News of Sri Lanka. And also more than a year ago whenthe A330 order was first put through. I remember the discussion about how the A330 would not be suitable for some airports in South India(Trichy, Trivandrum etc). I do agree with you that the A320 is ideal for its regional routes, esp to South India and some Gulf routes. This equipment would be the right sort to start the long-awaited Dhaka service. The A330 is far too large for frequent services to neighbouring destinations and for opening up new regional routes.
