Comparison Of All A330-200 Configurations

Sun Jan 02, 2011 5:11 am

After reading the recent thread about the new KE A380 configuration and the discussion that was going on with that, I decided to put together a list of all of the configurations that airlines have with their wide-body, long-haul fleets. I will list the airline, how many of the airplane they have, and the configuration using Y (Economy), Y+ (Economy Plus), C (Business), and F (First). I got most of this information off of Wikipedia, so it’s not the most reliable. This thread will just be about the Airbus A330-200, as there are a lot more airlines that operate large planes than I thought, and this took a while. I will eventually do this for all wide-body airliners, but they will probably take some time to complete.

...Too much time on your hands?   

I wonder how Y class must feel on the Monarch config. I guess they use 10 abreast on there?
I'll do my own airline. With Blackjack. And hookers. In fact, forget the airline.

No it's 3x3x3 so 9 abreast

It's, erm, a little compact!

Oh, right, I meant 9...

10 abreast would definitely be a squeeze.

I am amazed that Corsairlfly is actually decreasing their seating density with the new configuration. Are they moving up market?

Quoting will777 (Thread starter):
Fewest amount of seats: Swiss International Airlines – 196

And some of the most uncomfortable seats (in both J and Y). Fortunately the LX A330-200s will soon be retired. They are best avoided with their outdated old-style reclining J seats. Their Y seats, although with the usual scheduled carrier 2-4-2 layout, have also always seemed very cramped and uncomfortable to me. All the seats on the 332s date from the days of Swissair.

I think LX only has 3 or 4 332s left (maybe fewer by now) as additional new A330-330s are delivered with much improved seating, especially their new J product.
