Well, as an A330 lover I thing the RR engines style kills the design and makes the A330 looks "weaker", see the difference:

Sure abou that? The Trent700 certainly looks beefier on the aircraft, even though the diameter is slightly smaller than the GE CF6. In my opinion, the Trend700 is the only engine that doesn't make the 330 look underpowered.

I'm sure it has something to do with just looking like a larger version of the A340-300's hairdryers, since it retains that shape

Due to HNA's financial woes, Airbus has ferried 2 undelivered A330s to LDE for (short term?) storage.

These are MSN 1840 (Tianjin Airlines), and MSN 1847 (Capital Airlines).

More aircraft may follow.

Correct! I should have written "The next delivery from TLS>TSN for Hainan". The thread says that it's going for cabin outfitting and paint of course!

Agree completely.

While fully aware that the engine appearances mean nothing: the Trents definitely "look more powerful" (whatever that's supposed to mean) on the A330 IMO.

Is it true there are nine A332 in the MRTT conversion pipeline; MSN: 1667, 1735, 1762, 1787, 1799, 1808, 1822, 1830 and 1848?
There are 28 A330MRTT left to be delivered. In the Airbus O&D file of march there were 17 A330-200 orders left for Government, Executive and Private jet conversion.
I've counted five MSNs for MRTTs in the 1850-1900 range. And AFAIK there are still 15 MRTTs without production serial number.

LoL. Yea, the Chinese government order for the A330CEO is really all that is keeping the A330 line going with NEO delays. But even that order cannot sustain the line at full rate. :(

So including SAS there are only six A330CEOs orders left for European airlines.

The first 33N for DL has been tentatively identified as MSN 1915. For that MSN, how far until parts start arriving for final assembly?

It'll be registered as N401DX.

MSN1864 delivered, perhaps 30 frames in assembly, outfitting, working up. The current youngest frame in the FAL should be around MSN1900. I would assume MSN1915 to enter the FAL very likely in 3 month and not later than 4 month.

Out of these remaining orders, Jet Airways order seems to be weakest. They aren't taking any new delivery for A330 no? They have few A332 flying with some else now, can always recall them back to their fleet. And the eight for Iran Air seems to be a "weak order" too??
