Anyone know what the CASM (or CASK) advantage is for the A330-300 over the -200? The -300 typically carries about 15-20% more pax (which lowers seat costs), but is longer and therefore heavier aircraft than the -200 (which increases trip costs; what CASM advantage would one expect for the -300 net-net?

According to, the OEW isn't that much different. I assume by the time the bigger vertical stabiliser and centre fuel tank are added to the A332, it's weight advantage diminishes. If the -300 carries 15% more pax, I'd expect a CASM around 10% lower for that one. It would be more expensive to buy.
