Definitely the B777. If you like PTV's the B777's have them.
Their A330's do not have PTV's.

If the PTV's do not phase you than either aircraft are quiet good.

Actually, it's their A330-300s that don't have PTV; their A330-200s do, although I gather they're leasing some more 332s - can't guarantee that the new ones will come with PTVs.

Personally I prefer the 777, but bear in mind that its seat configuration in Y is the much-maligned 2-5-2.

For the A330-200 (& not A333) there's in-seat lumbar support (not found in their 333; don't think there is any on the 777)

If it''s the A330-200, it's worth considering as they have the PTVS but the -300 doesnt. The -300's interior are quite worned out.


Airliners is the wings of my life.

Just got back from a 10 day trip through the Pacific, flying MH 777's and 747's and I'd have to say without a doubt that I reccomend the 777's. Having flown on several other 777's (UA, CO, SQ, NH) the MH ones are very well configured, excellent movie selections on PTV, 34 inch pitch throughout economy (which really makes a difference!) and pneumatic lumbar support in all seats. If you have a chance, request row 29 or 12, as these are the "bulkhead" seats in both Y sections of the plane. I had 29 on the way back, and with the flip-up PTV screens and generous recline (for Y), you could almost imagine you were up in Business. Didn't fly on their a330's, but the 777 definately stood out over the 747 (which seemed more cramped). Never having had the chance to fly MH before, I must say I was very impressed, and would not hesitate to fly them again. For anyone interested, routing was PVG-KUL-MEL-SYD (Qantas)-AKL (Air NZ)-KUL-PVG.

Not flown on an A330 but the MH B777s are an excellent aircraft, the layout is good with lots of leg room, even in economy. I flew PER-KUL and it was comfort all the way.

If you like middle seats in business class you´ll prefer the 777. Well some people like that food & crew compensates for the limmited leg room/recline ..

If you have an aisle seat in B777 economy on the 5 seater (as I had once) the risc is that you are woken up constantly by people wanting to go to the lav. Half way the flight I offered to take the middle seat in order to have a decent sleep...

Legroom, lumbar support and recline is economy is great, you can even have a real sleep.

Those RR Trents are quiet loud on the 777 when you are in business I think..
