decipering aircraft numbers

I'm looking at the flight details for several flights and it says "Aircraft: 332" and "Aircraft: 319." Would someone be kind enough to tell me which planes these numbers refer to? I can't find information about the aircraft anywhere on the Air France website, and seatguru.com only shows the Airbus 330 and 340, so I'm confused as to what 332 and 319 mean. Thanks.

332 = Airbus A330-200
319 = Airbus A319
343 = Airbus A340-300
77W = Boeing 777-300ER
772 = Boeing 777-200
744 = Boeing 747-400

In the Airbus product range, there are two variations of the A330, the A330-200, operated by AF, also designated as 332, and the A330-300. So 330 and 332 currently mean the same thing at AF. The two versions of the twin engine 330 and the four versions of the four engine A340 (200, 300, 500, 600) are part of one family Airbus aircrafts.

The A319 is a specific aircraft type within the A320 family which includes the A318, the A319, the A320 and the A321.
