Hi,

I'm wondering for quite a while what does the (X) in 330, 340 names means?

ie: Birdy Airlines has 3 A330-301 (330 serie 300 with GE engines): OO-SFM, -SFN, -SFO.

But what does the X means in A330-300 (X)??

HL7553 A330-323 from Korean Air is a 330 serie 300 with PW engines and the X??

By the way does anyone know where to find a list where you can find detailed explanation of the last digit of Airbus names? (ie: the "1" in A330-301)?

thanks you by advance!

Regards.

Julien

Same meaning on the A330 I think. The last 3 digits of the Airbus codes refer to the engine type fitted to the aircraft I think.

For example:

A320-211 is an A320-200 with GE CFM56-5A1 Engines

A320-212 is an A320-200 with GE CFM56-5A3 Engines

A320-232 is an A320-200 with IAE V2527-A5 Engines

etc....

The A340-313 has CFM56-5C4 Engines

For example:

A320-211 is an A320-200 with GE CFM56-5A1 Engines

A320-212 is an A320-200 with GE CFM56-5A3 Engines

A320-232 is an A320-200 with IAE V2527-A5 Engines

etc....

The A340-313 has CFM56-5C4 Engines

I used to love the smell of Jet-A in the morning...

I might be wrong on this one, but I always thought the last three digits for Airbus were:

First Digit: series number ("100", "200")

Second Digit: Engine Manufacturer (1=CFM, 3=IAE)

Third Digit: Flight Control Software Revision Number

I'd appreciate it if someone could correct me on this.

Minuteman, you are mistaken, and Rick767 has the correct explanation. the second digit is the engine manufacturer (0=GE, 1=CFM, 2=P&W, 3=IAE, 4=RR, and I do not recall what is the one for the joint Pratt/GE engine for the A380). The third digit is the specific engine variant for that aircraft, so the A330-321 has the PW4164, the A330-322 has the PW4168, and the A330-323 has the PW4168A.

Hi, can anyone tell me if Boeing's codes work the same way?

Sure enough... its another engine code, thanks.

As for a list of detailed meanings, I was provided this page.

The first digit is the model number, the second digit the engine version(1 for CFM, 2 for PW, 3 for IAE and 4 for RR), and the last digit stands for the engine variant(eg PW4168,PW4172,RR Trent 772B etc...)

For example, an A340 can have the following codes:

A340-211

A340-311

A340-312

A340-313

A340-313E

A340-541

A340-642

9V-SVA

For example, an A340 can have the following codes:

A340-211

A340-311

A340-312

A340-313

A340-313E

A340-541

A340-642

9V-SVA

9V-SVA | B772ER
