What he said... each one had to deal the engine and company buying it.  Look up the a300.  There are tons of subtypes

airbus differentiates on engine type, not customer, so this does not apply to the a300.

however, for boeing planes, it applies. For example, a 757-232 is a 757-200 built to Delta's specifications (per the link to the prior poster put up).

I didn't say that they did.  I just said that Airbus has many subtypes themselves....

There are more types (at least numbers) than there are in this sim.  There is an A310-324, 325, 304, 308...   And yes, it is all due to engine types.

I was just pointing out that the subtypes differ between A/B. Also, for Airbii planes, it is much LESS likely that you will only have a single frame of a particular "type" manufactured since it is based on engine (which would need to be certified for the frame, an expense Airbus wouldn't take on without enough orders to be profitable). In Boeing's scheme, it only denotes a configuration difference (lavs, galleys, door options, etc)

Can you humor me and explain how Delta has 767-332ERs with both GE CF6 and PW4060s if your above "correction" is accurate?

Airbus codes denotes in the first number (in a -232 I mean the 3) the engine manufacturer, and the second is the thrust configuration.
Boeing codes note tho whom the plane was delivered. If a 747-100 was delivered to Pan Am it would be 747-121, being the 21 the customer number for Boeing for Pan Am. An Aerolineas Argentinas 727-200Adv is labelled 727-287Adv (AR's customer number being 87).
They're completely different methods.

The airbus differences were covered earlier, but Swiftus added a 'and preferred engine type' to the Boeing description. I'm awaiting his sheepish reply to my contradiction :-)

I researched. I was wrong.  Sorry.

No intention to be harsh. The use of the word "sheepish" and the smiley face was meant to imply that the statement was in jest, however, when typing it out on a mobile phone like I was, some of that may not come across to the readers of the post. My apologies if I have offended anyone, especially Swiftus.
