For your outbound option, it depends on which 777 of AF you can get on. The older AF 777-200ER have wider seats than the KL 777, but less seat pitch and the old ones have recline seats whereas KL have lie-flat at 180 degrees. There is also a version of the 77W which has wider seats,but significantly less seat pitch. The other 77W and 772 have better seats than KL. For food I have found KL better and their service better.
For your inbound option, the AF A330 has less than 1 inch wider and pitch compared to the NW A330. However, for this flight if you want better service and food you should go for AF. I would go on NW A330 because they wont be around long anymore.
Hope I helped.

AF without a doubt. The seats in KL are like slides (they use Teflon for coating, I guess) and the NW cabin crew is simply awful. Also on AF you have the (very small) chance of an ops-up to F. It really is a no-brainer.
When flying in coach: take KL. Their cabin crew makes up for everything.
