I will be flying a 74E for the first time on Thursday on an Air Canada flight from YYZ to Frankfurt. Then again on a flight from LHR-YYZ on April 6th. I was just curious as to how the 74E is configured. I know it has cargo pallet space in the rear, so I assume that from inside the fusalage appears to be about half as long.
Where are Economy, Business, First class located on these aircraft?
I'm traveling with a group of 60, as it is a school trip, and I assume we'll sit together.
Has anyone else flown this aircraft? What was it like? Any comparisons to a 744 flight?

I remember I flew on th eupper deck of the 74E in 96 from YVR-HKG, I was with a groupd of 40 people then, and we had the entire upper deck to ourselves...it was AMAZING!!! The Kai Tak approach at the end was a nice way to top it off too

I had that moving map thing on my flight from FRA-YYZ. I sat in 22A and my audio system didnt work.. i had to use my brothers cause he was sleeping but even then I had to put the armrest vertical so I could get a sound to come out. The legroom is much better on the A330 I flew over on.

I sat like three rows from the cargo.... i noticed no difference.. nothing.. the seats are not as good as the newer seats on the 330s...
i went on fleet number 343 (C-GAGN) a few months ago and it was Business on top deck...
