LAN Seat Pitch in J: 763 vs A340

Seat Guru is showing J class pitch on the 763 at 74" vs 56" on the A340. Is there really that much difference? I was planning on taking the A340 SCL-AKL but 56" seems like it might be a little tight for such a long flight (not that I have many other options).

They are the same seats and are lie-flat, and the seat in front of you is fixed (with your video screen). It sounds like they didn't update the pitch from the old A340J seats on the 3 cabin planes. Everything is now 2 cabin. Nothing encroaches into your personal space, from your seatback, to the end of your "bed."

Thanks Eastbay. I was hoping it was the same seat, as it seems to get excellent reviews. BTW I have spent quite some time reviewing this as well as the Chile forum in anticipation of a long delayed first trip to Chile. Your comments and advice have been enormously helpful and extremely interesting.
