Laptop power in Business Class

Some colleagues and I are flying out of CDG on Thursday and were wondering a) whether the following aircraft had laptop power and b) whether it was AC or DC power. We will be in business class.

AF332 CDG-BOS (A330-200)
AF018 CDG-EWR (A340-300)
AF072 CDG-LAX (777-200)

in A330 it should work. but only in biz.
for the other aircrafts, I would not count on it. it's rather no.

AC or DC? good question.

On the A330, it is available in biz.
On the A340, I'm pretty sure that the biz seats have it as well. I think I used it on my last BOS-CDG.
On the 777, can't remember.

The outlets are the typical in-flight type (not the cigarette lighter type), and I believe that makes them DC. So you need an in-flight DC power adapter.

Sorry if it is not as precise as I would like it, but it's the best I've got.
