As I answered many many times to this kind of question, it is almost not possible to rate the comfort of a modern aircraft without knowing the airline.
All modern wide-bodies are safe and good (747, 777, 767, 340, 330, MD 11).
Comfort only depends on the airline which chooses the width of the seats and the legroom.
Personally I love the 340/330 very much because it is probaly the quietest airliner and has on all airlines a 2-4-2 seating.

I wanted any info in general about the aircraft.. Im flying Air Canada and I basically know what their inflight service is like as I fly them often.. This is my first time on teh A343. I've flown on 772's, 744's, 742's and M11's internationally, but not any airbuses.. Im looking forward to it.

Hey Jaysit,
I am flying that EXACT route in Decmeber.. Air Canada flight number 1. and returing to YYZ on Air Canada flight number 2. The service is determined by which class you'll be seated in.. economy or business.. In busines you'll be treated much better.. I am flying business on this particular trip. Seat pitch info can be found at AC's site.. from what i've been told, the A340 has a roomy cabin.. and the seating is 2-5-2. I wouldnt' worr yabout that too much.. The food is generally more edible than some other airlines... I think you'll have a great trip aboard the A340.
