The A330's could be either one of three different types; PW. RR or GE. The RR powered 332's are the best as they feature the EY cabin as they are brought new from Airbus recently. The GE and PW powered are leased so will not feature the standard EY cabin, but they will have PTV's.
I've never flown on the RR powered A330's, but the GE's and PW's offer an Ok service!

My friend recently flew the Toronto - Abu Dhabi route via Brussels with Etihad and he very much enjoyed the service. He said he felt pampered the whole way there. The meal was excellent and even a menu was provided.
Actually, the GE powered ones came from SN Brussels, if I'm not mistaken.
The ones that came from TAM are the PW ones (PT-MVD and PT-MVE), and have a decent interior with PTV in all classes. But they don't have AVOD as the newest ones (PT-MVF/G/H/K/L).
