Airbus A330 Rework

A Rework for A330 will be cool adding new features to the aircraft, also adding some new livery’s like the New Air Canada livery, Air Transat, Eurowings, and so on. I would be happy to see the A330 rework.

So would this rework include the A330-200F?

It should. A330-200F falls under the umbrella.

So wing flex will definitely be added once this is reworked, but I was wondering whether it’s possible to have the wings shudder on taxi, takeoff, and landing. I know in the sim, runways are flat compared to small bumps etc irl, but just wondering…

Here’s another livery request: Beluga XL :) ok it’s a bit more than a livery but it’s an A330 deep down😉 to be exact: Airbus A330-743L. Would be huge fun flying this whale at crosswinds.

Here isn’t really the place to request variants but I do agree that this would be nice to come with a rework, now that the Beluga XL is an A330 variant. If you want to see it in IF, then vote here.

The Beluga XL although based upon the Airbus A330-700 is still a different airplane, a different variant of the A330 and is also a cargo plane supposed to the A330 commercial passenger jet aircraft.

I ask all of you to keep this thread only A330 Commercial Passenger Airline discussion only and please don’t venture off to other planes similar to the A330 or beginning to request A330 liveries which can be done on respective livery request threads, and not here! Or you could make your own livery request, just make sure you’re TL2 or above ;)

All of your requests re wonderful and would be amazing to have in IF one day, so therefore do please cast a vote for them on their own request thread :)

Thank You for reading and i hope that we can keep this thread clean, productive and mainly on-topic.

The feature with flexing wings during taxi is a different request, but it got mentioned in the Instagram stream on Tuesday and they said they’ve tried it so it will be added probably, we just have to wait.

How is an A330 variant off topic when discussing an A330 rework? I agree though that the Beluga isn’t an A330 - its a Beluga, similar to how the A330 and 340 are pretty much the same plane yet you wouldn’t class them as such.

I wouldn’t count A330 and A340 as the same plane. The Beluga is a alternate cargo version of the A330, the passenger variant. Theae two are different from each other. They have many things uncommon with one another. And there is a Feature Request individually made for the Beluga, one for A340 and this one for A330. They are in the same family yet different planes with features that differ.


And why should we not discuss A340 and Beluga here you ask?

It’s because this thread is mainly and only focusing on the A330 Rework that many of us want. If you want to talk about the other planes then go to those request threads. And not to clog up this topic with what is not relevant is also another reason to not talk about A340 and Beluga here.


Thank You for your understanding, have a great day!

Yes - and that A330 rework should include the A330neo and A332F.

The A330neo won’t be included I’m 100% sure because they won’t add aircraft with little data and the A330neo is completely new.

Not to speculate, but they could add the a330NEO. It isn’t entirely new. It is based off of the a330 with not that much difference. The only difference is that the a330NEO has different

  • Engines

  • Winglets

  • Cockpit

Its the same principal as the B787-10. Not that much of a difference between the variants.

They focus on that a lot. That’s why new a/c take so long to get released

Yes Airbus wanted the a330NEO and a350 to have the same or near same familiarization training.

We will see what happens to the A330, definitely looking forward to it.

Does it mean anything when they showed on the live stream that the A330 or A340 series were not on the list? Sorry I don’t mean to speculate or anything but was just curious. image

It could be because FDS doesn’t want to advertise their lower quality aircraft. The Boeing 757 and 767 are also missing. Absolutely nothing to see here folks.
