Reading his post I found it very obvious that he was giving his own opinion, not any "facts". And it was also very obvious, why in his opinion "The A340 trumps the 787". He had said it earlier in the same post. About the A340: "It is down to how quiet this aircraft is." About the B787: "It is worse than the A340 and probably the A330". I don't see any reason for your comments. And again, all that has nothing to do with the topic here, it is about TAP's A330-900, not about A340 vs. B787.

Apologies, but sometimes forum topics take a wrong turning here and there. It needn't be a bad thing.
I believe the original question was answered a couple of times, although it wasn't clear if said posters had experience of them.

Now this is an example of particularly valuable substance. How does it relate to passenger experience on an A330-900?

Well it makes some people angry at airbus for providing better comfort for economy class passengers. It also help many people for lying to themself and say that B787 is comfortable.

Very mature observation, especially with that reputation of yours.

So far I had just one return flight in the early days of B787-8. That was ANA between FRA and HND, outbound in business, return in economy. I did enjoy those flights, but that ANA aircraft had a very low seat density. Was it even 8-abreat in economy? I don't remember. Still it was noisier than A340-300 or -600. So in a way I agree with you, I would also prefer A340 (8-abreast) over B787 (9-abreast). But on the other hand I don't really care. I don't fly for flying, I fly to get to places. And every aircraft type I used so far got me there without larger problems for me or my health and well-being.

My interest in passengers' experience on A330-900 is more or less "professional". I worked on it, but so far I had no flight and no real life experience with it.

Yeah, ANA is pretty different with their 8-abreast. But they are a premium airlines.

I remember being stuck on a middle seat in SQ's B787-10. First time I feel claustrophobic on an aircraft. On 10-abreast B777 I always got the 2 seat at the very back of the rear fuselage, so it's not that bad. And B737 only had 3-3 configs which makes it feels less crowded. But man, never again, middle seat on B787.

Most comfy flights we could probably got these days is on A330.

Well, that will probably be A380, despite not being 8-abreast. But the question here still is, if the A330-900 is noticably different from A330-300. I would expect it to be a bit quieter in the rear cabin (in fact I know it is), but I never heard it. Otherwise I don't expect much difference.

Probably better insulation and quieter engines. Most of the neo would be probably with newer generation economy class seat which have improvements on the leg areas. The seat pitch would stays the same but the knee room would improved.
