Providing they stick to it, the A330-300 withdrawals would appear to be in line with when they were built (a few of them went on sub-lease to other airlines initially).

Pre CV19 the plan was to replace the A330 fleet with the A330 Neo orders on a like for like basis as they came of the production line. Not sure where the deferments have left that schedule but time will tell.

All 339s are due in by the end of 2024. From what I’ve seen, there should be 4 deliveries in 2022, 5 in 2023 and the final 5 in 2024. This may change nearer the time.
