I've got my manuals spread over my desk as I study for recurrent, and it occurred to me that the there is a political difference between the A330-300 and A330-200 models concerning fueling the plane.
We fuel our planes with either Jet A and Jet A-1. Why one or the other? One reason is we can't get Jet A outside the US. But then why would we want it?
The difference between the two types is Jet A-1 has a lower freezing point. Jet A's freezing point is −40 °C (−40 °F) and Jet A-1's is −47 °C (−53 °F). Another interesting fact is that Jet A-1 has a mandatory anti-static additive. Is one more expensive than the other? I'm not sure. If you have any more data on the fuels, I would love to know. All I know is it smells really good.
But back to the trivia question...
The A330-300 belongs to the right wing party, and the A330-200 is a bipartisan plane. Do you know why? Answer to come tomorrow, but have fun guessing.
