I will take 330 every time. You can have so much more pax on it.

Depends on if you want to go long-haul. You can run the A330 and A340 under one fleet group. The only 767 that is worth your time is the 767-400ER.

slight disagree.  Get 2x 763s and fly it there.  You will win commonality.

The best thing about 763 is that you can replace it later on with 764, keep the same schedule.  IMO, 764 is slightly better than A333 in AWS.  But A333 is a fine plane too...

IMHO: 764>333>332>763>762.

The 764 in this game is amazing, although, slightly unrealistic (way too much capacity).

It's pretty realistic capacity wise:

Ohh.... I was comparing it to Delta's fleet:

Version 1:     36 Business 181 Economy   
Version 2:     41 Business 200 Economy
Version 3:     40 Business 206 Economy

Granted the Business in this case might be Premium Business...but still

In my opinion, the A333 everytime.
Yes its a little more fuel than the 764, but the commonality with the A330/40 series is just unbeatable. Sure the A340s themselves are not the most efficient of machines, but the -600 can be a great money maker if you use it properly (and yes, I have used 773(ER) before). Plus the range of the A333 is also helpful, sure its only a little more but it makes the difference for someone like me  ;)

I think there are no benefits of having fleet types from the same company..

I usually pick Boeing over Airbus, but I'd go for the A330 over 767

I run an airline with 11 767-300ER and need to decide on what fleet to go with for renewal...looking to go to europe next and the range of the A330-300 compared with the 767-300ER isnt too good...what about A330-200 for flights to europe against the 767-300ER, your thoughts please

Cheers

If youre comparing the A330 and 767 families of aircraft, then at least compare the right ones :P

A333= B764ER
A332= B763(ER)

The A332 will eat up the 763 in terms of efficiency, you fit heaps more pax in with a relatively lower fuel burn- plus you get a range boost  ;)

Hi

Thanks for repy, was looking at configuring an A333 with Y315 and C28 and similar on the airbus A332. I know it will reduce the range of both types but i dont really have huge demand for F class and also my routes are in the range of 2000-6000nm.

With that sort of config the 763ER/400 cant really compare can they?

Is that a good config for you A330 fans

Cheers
