Hi-Fly lists the typical DOWs for their fleet and a 285-seat A330-300 has a typical DOW of 124,000kg and a 290-seat A330-900 has a typical DOW of 133,000kg.

Yes and there certainly has been no news I'm aware of that the neo is overweight, IIRC there were reports Airbus were on target if not doing better.
