AF vs NW CDG-USA

I'm booking a OnePass award in business class from CDG into the US. My two choices are NW into MSP on an A330, or AF into ORD on an A340. Having never done either, can someone tell me whether there are any benefits to either one?

A search should yield some threads.

I try to choose NW over AF whenever possible for one reason - NW will let you book exit row seats in advance (assuming you are ST Elite or Elite +), AF will not.

Edit: Saw that you're talking business class. In that case, I have no strong opinions either way...

I've never flown in an A340. My real question is about the differences between A330 and A340 in business class, plus any amenities AF would have over NW on each of these planes.

As far as I know both planes are nearly identical except
for the number of engines and nothing to get excited
about. Skytrax.com has excellent seat reviews and
comparisons. No idea about amenities, would guess
both are similar. And anyway, it's such a short trip,
what can you ask for? No caviar, for sure.

I'm pretty sure we had foie gras in J on our AF flight from CDG-JFK, so no caviar, but way better food than most US carriers.

I don't think the seat will be much different, but I think the food & wine are better on AF.
