I think it is noticeably narrower and thus substandard. One review I read (can't remember where) put the seat width the same but the "distance between walls" 3 inches narrower. For me that makes it feel quite "tight", and I am rather small. It's still great for sleeping. I've taken several flights in 787 J and whilst I love the aircraft, I avoid it as much as possible and go for the 777 where possible. Whilst I can see their "consistency of product" argument I think it was a serious mistake by Air NZ (and it isn't a consistent product anyway).
