I was wondering if anyone knew the width of the EI business seats; we're flying to DUB for our honeymoon next month, and I was wondering how it compared to the business seats in AA's 762's, for example (which, like MD-80 seats, I find narrower than the domestic F seats on AA's newer aircraft like the 737-800).
FWIW, we'll be on the EI A330 from ORD-DUB (and in domestic F between SJC and ORD).

In addition to the seat width, there's some extra width to the armrests, which can make a difference on a long haul, since your're not rubbing shoulders with the guy next to you.
Personally I've found that the 767 6-across in the 767 can be great or awful depending on the choice of seat design. Oddly, in the case of Delta I prefer the -200 and -300 to the newer -400, there just seems to be more room overall.
One of the best seats I ever had the fortune to get my derriere into were the F-class units on TW's 767-300s. Even though they were 6-across, the cushions were designed just right (not too hard, and fit your body well). Of course, all that legroom didn't hurt.
