Looks beautiful.

Hopefully more -800 orders are coming soon. It’s sold pretty terribly compared to the -900.


Exactly the same



It for sure does look shorter than it’s older sister ( A339 )

I flew the A330-900neo in June, and it truly is a really nice aircraft. I wonder what they’re configuration onboard is though? It seems to look quite short compared to the -900.

What airline?!?

Cabin width on both the A330-200 (currently flown by Kuwait) and the A330-800 is 17 feet, three inches. I’m betting the same configuration. 2-4-2, I believe

Yeah, I’d expect the economy to stay the same or similar. Was just wondering how many seats and stuff, and also the business class configuration. Currently, Kuwait Airways’ A330s have first class in a 1-2-1 configuration, and business class in 2-2-2 with angle flat seats which is outdated now. I wonder if they’ll take this opportunity to introduce a new seat.


I read somewhere what United was/is looking into the A330-800 to replace the 767 on some flights, hopefully they follow through with this.

I personally like the A330-800 better than the -900.

A330-800 Neo… My favourite variant. It’s so small and so amazing at the same time! Really hoping for a success on the -800 with more orders. Good luck!


Looks Beautiful! Just looking at the engines, is their engine colour orange inside?

Indeed! It’s my favorite livery! It looks so beautiful on their B777-300ER & A320NEO. Can’t wait to see the A350-900 In KU’s colors soon!

The engines are covered for now. :) they are not orange.

I agree with you, I have always preferred the
A330-200 over the -300, and the A330-800 over the -900.

Shorter variants of the Airbus A330 looks better IMO.
