I don't know the major difference but I know that the A340-500 have PTV in Y whereas the A340-300 doesn't.
I don't know the other major difference but enjoy the view when the aircraft is taking off!!! I guess you will get a better view of the surface on the A340's (not an insult) opposed to the B744 which I think is a good thing.
Oh but one thing, when you stop in YVR, enjoy the executive class lounge of Air Canada. I don't know if its only the arrival lounge but I hear they have showers and they even clean your jacket or clothes while you are taking a shower.

Quoting Legallykev (Thread starter): I'm flying to HK from YYZ next month; via YVR on the way there and direct on the way back. Is there a big difference between the Exec. Class on the A343 and the A345?
Yes there is a big difference between the A343 and A345 cabins, most noticeably the lie-flat seats that only the A345's have.

They are 'ok'. They're nowhere near the comfort levels of some of the asian carriers eg SQ, CX. But they will suffice for sleeping. AC won't be replacing them as they will be disposing of the A345s when the new 777-300ERs and 777-200LRs come online. These aircrafts will have the fold out bed ala Air New Zealand and Virgin Atlantic.

Thanks for the info. I am to fly to Tokyo from yyz in 10 days. I was thinking of AC with the non stop. I am used to the BA Club world and business class having a bed. Am I getting the reclining seat on that route or is it a bed?
there is economy class, business class, first class...then Concorde..pure class
