The production of Airbus A330ceo (Current Engine Option) is slowly coming to its end. This aircraft will be succeeded by Airbus A330neo (New Engine Option). We did a market research for Airbus A330ceo and analyzed who has yet to receive the aircrafts, before the end of production.

The A330ceo comes in two variants; a smaller A330-200 and a larger A330-300. Many aviation analysts predicted that, with the arrival of Boeing 787, Airbus would soon be ending their A330 production and sales. However, the A330s are still in operation, with more than 1440 sold in both variations. Airbus A330 is used for short range regional flights, as well as for long haul intercontinental flights. For example, Qatar Airways operates them on route from Doha to Kuwait City, with the flight time just over one hour, and Aerolineas Argentinas uses them on a 14-hour flight from Rome to Buenos Aires. Configuration of the economy class cabin is usually 2-4-2, which is very popular among customers. Some companies, however, have a 3-3-3 seating arrangements in their economy cabins.
