  Airbus Aircraft Families - Introduction to the A330/A340 Family
The twin-engine A330 is optimised for highest revenue generation and the lowest operating costs from regional segments to extended range routes, while the four-engine A340 provides versatility on the most demanding long-range and ultra-long-range flights.
The A330/A340 Family is composed of six jetliner versions that share the same fuselage cross-section and offer significant commonality with the optimum mix of operating characteristics in terms of aircraft size, range and economics.
Airbus, an EADS Company, is a leading aircraft manufacturer with the most modern and comprehensive product line.

 FlightSim.Com Review: PSS Airbus A330/A340
The Airbus is the product of a design collaboration between France, Germany, Britain and Spain, and centres around maximum design and operational commonality across a range that has grown to ten aircraft models: the smallest, ranging from the hundred seat A318, to the vast A380, which seats over five hundred.
Okay, yeah, POSKY have also made a freeware A330 available, but I haven't had a chance to look at it yet and if they can beat PSS at their own game I will be seriously impressed, though no doubt the POSKY models will be up to their usual high standards.
Both the A330 and A340 (from now on, when I say 'planes' I mean all the variants in the two packages) have superb 3D textures, with reflective mapping, night lighting, Airbus spec strobes and beacons and so many moving parts I won't even attempt to describe them all.

 Airbus taunts Boeing over 7E7
In Boeing's commercial jetliner back yard, an Airbus executive yesterday rolled out for the first time his company's detailed facts, figures and charts at an industry conference in Seattle to shoot down point by point arguments Boeing has been making that its planned 7E7 will be a big winner.
Airbus has no plans to replace the A330-200, which entered service in 1998, with a newer model.
Depending on the 7E7 price, he said, Airbus calculations show that the range of savings in direct operating costs would be no more than 1 percent better than the A330-200 and could be as much as 4 percent worse.
