On top of that you have the significantly better IFE, larger PTV, better lighting, better cabin pressure, higher humidity, more overhead bin space, a very slim IFE box under the seats compared to the bulky one on the A330 and in flight connectivity. You will not be disappointed.

If you are a larger person you will notice a difference as compared to the 777 seat, but if you were comfortable on QR's A330 in Y you will be comfortable on their 787.
I find the seats narrower than the 777, much narrower actually but with better leg room. The IFE box under the seat is extremely annoying, I don't know about the QR7 77 but you don't get that on EK aircraft. There are seats you can choose to avoid the box but not many isle or window options.
