Does anyone have a decent set of notes for differences between the various Airbus models, the ones I could do with are A320/321/330

I think Airbus publishes online books, among which are differences manuals. I have seen one for all the A340 versions (quite useful too). Have a good look at their website - may require a good look to find it.

Sorry I can not help you further.

Nice find, Mr Bernouilli, from someone who knows that site backwards - or so I thought -.
If more details are needed, THIS (http://www.smartcockpit.com/) is probably the most complete (I did not say up-to-date ) source.
Click on *MY AIRCRAFT* and the manuals are ready for download.

Cheers.

Both good sites, but not really a differences set of notes and Mr B's does not seem to include the 330.:hmm:

Well, let's see..................

The 320 is small ish,

The 321 is larger,

The 330 is really, really big.

That's a starter for 10 :ok:

The 340 is long .... -600 really really long

The 350 is so ... stealth

The 360 and 370 are so invisible

and finally the 380 She is so ...Beluga that I prefer Jumbos

Foxy,

Well, while ever the 380 stays off the fairway and on the concrete, it's 'reet huge' - as we say oop north !

Yes, I am on holiday, but I've found free t'interweb in the lobby (Iberostar Rose Hall). This place is much better than the Wyndham, we should be here for layovers !

Probably costs 5p a night more, in which case no chance.:}

You can check out smartcockpit.com as well, there was some info on there about differences between the single aisle busses.
