Dtwclipper and Alitalia744 are completley correct. I'm sure another airline requested this aswell, can't think who at the moment though. As for B4real, that A330 in the background (possibly AIH / MYT on its way to the Maldives / Far East Asia?) is definetley a completely separate aircraft to the A320.
