Great news!

How many orders does the A330-300 currently have, is NW & QR still on order?

From the article: "The new A330-300s will be fitted with 372 seats in a comfortable two-class lay-out providing an additional capacity of 48 seats and featuring the latest standards in In-flight entertainment in all cabins. "

372 seats  Wow! Is there anyone putting even close to that number of seats in their 333s now?

Good to see the A330 still picking up orders - rumours of it's death have been greatly exaggerated!  wink

Yeah. I think MyTravel has like 443. I might be incorrect, but it is definitely a European IT operator.

It's going to be inevitable... the A350 is a far superior machine that why should anyone order the A330 for deliveries after 2010???
Airbus or Boeing - it's all good to me!

Well, yes - everything comes to an end (even the 737  smile  ), but some of the more bigoted Boeing supporters on this site predicted the A330 would never sell again.  sarcastic
