Has anybody out there converted from the A340/A330/A320 to the B777? What was it like? Thanks!
P.S- This is NOT intended to start an Airbus vs Boeing argument!

Trent_772B - SIA and Cathay are likely to be your nearest source of people who have done the change.
From a friend of mine in SIA who went from the 340 to 777 it would seem that Jetboy is quite wrong! The 777 sounds as though it is a great a/c to fly and is highly sophisticated and conventional, rather than a jazzed up computer game!:D

MAS (MH) operates the 772 & A330-300.
No big deal on the conversions from A330 to the B777's (here a conversion from the A330 to the B777 is considered a promotion :D ).
The only big difference is to unlearn the Airbus concepts & philosophy to Boeing's.Most notably will be the different FBW concept on both type.
Safe flying all.
