Economy: 777-300 vs 747-400 - which more comfortable?

Jump to last reply

This is in regards to a trip I'm trying to set up for some family. The basic plan is to go from Canada to Bangalore, India. The cheapest flights are with Air Canada Toronto to Frankfurt, and then Lufthansa on to Bangalore.

I took this flight myself a few years ago. I remember the Air Canada going portion being fine, and the second leg to Bangalore being miserable. Then the return trip basically reasonable. All economy. That was in 2007. Fast forward to now, booking for this summer, looks like the first leg of the trip is on a 777-300, and the second on a 747-400. On the return, it's a 747-8i then a 777-300.

Putting this together, I conclude the 777 was the more comfortable plane vs the 747. Looking at seatguru, looks like the economy seats are wider on the 777, is this why I remember it being more comfortable? Can anybody confirm this with their experience? I want to avoid the least comfortable plane for my family if possible. Keep in mind this will be all economy. Any input greatly appreciated.
