Tiny. When you have one sitting between two 747s, you hardly see it.
In capacity, it is about the size of a 763.

An 330 can carry about 300 passengers, and 747 about 400, so the 747 is larger.

It looks spacious and big inside the A330, but comparing it to the B747, nah.

typical A330 3 class config holds about 250-275 passengers
typical 767-300 3 class config holds about 185-210
typical 747-400 3 class config holds about 350-400

A330 is closer to the 777-200 in capacity.. in fact the A330 has a little more room for cargo than the 777.

The A330-300 is almost identical in cargo capacity as the 777-200. Both aircraft hold up to 32 LD3's in the cargo hold.
