Despite being a perfect fit for the long-haul routes the a330-200
may be  a little too large and heavy for some domestic and
regional routes.A market might just exist for the p305.
For example Indian airlines might just be looking for such
an aircarft to replace it's venerable a300's.If airbus can
come up with an aircraft that matches the a300 or the a310
in capacity/performance and beats it in terms of efficiency it could
succeed in winning a large part of this niche market.This begs to ask
the question what will boeing come up with?.An improved 767?
