Can anyone explain why the 300 is about 5 metres longer than the 200, yet has less seats?

From QF web site. Don't know where you got your info from but it appears to be incorrect.

There are only less seats in Business on the 333 compared to the 2 remaining non-refitted 332s (the refitted 332s have the same seat count in Business as the 333) because the old layout was 2-2-2 whereas the new one is 1-2-1.


In any case, the 333 has more seats in Economy than any of the 332s.

VH-EBO, VH-EBS & VH-EBV have been reconfigured to C27Y224, now a total of 251 seats on each of these 332s.


The number of seats for 333s still remains at 297.

The information was in the Qantas inflight magazine.

If it is showing that the maximum number of seats in the A330-200 is around the 310 mark, someone hasn't updated the fleet stats. Prior to the Suites coming online, the 330-200 had recliners in business which took up less space than the skybeds in the 330-300 hence why you were able to fit in more seats. From memory the densest configuration was 42J/268Y, however the 330-300 had 30J-267Y. Currently the 330-200 has less seats than the 330-300 due to the suites coming on board on both.
