Question about A332 & A333 fueltanks

Recommended Posts

Guest MatsH

Hello!Perhaps I am mistaken, but according to the Airbus.com aircraft-specifications the A330-200 and A330-300 have different sized fueltanks. A332 can carry 139100 litres and A333 have a fuelcapacity of 97170 litres. However, in FS both the PSS A332 and the A333 can carry approx. 139000 litres. In other words, the fueltank on the A333 is to large in the PSS model. Is there any way I can change this or have I missed something here? And another question about fuel-loads on the A330. Is it true that the aircraft is at MTOW with full tanks and with no passengers or cargo?Regards .... Mats

I too have noticed this. On the note of being overweight for takeoff, I have this exact same problem. I plan to do a flight from Dublin to Los-Angelas which is done by Aer Lingus in real life and even with no baggae or cargo and only 80% PAX's I'm still overweight by 60,000kg for the takeoff! All of the information I have put into the fuel planners is correct and nothing is too much so why is this happening?I bought this product for

Demonstrative posts don't get answered any quicker ;)I can do those flights day and daily with significant loads. How about you supply me with some of the figures and we can work on it from there.
