HI everyone?

I will be flying SYD-BKK on TG 996

Then BKK to FRA on LH 773

And FRA to SFO on LH 454

Does anyone know which version of the 744 ill be on? I notice LH seems to have 4 versions and TG has 3.

Many thanks in advance

TG 996 - 747= F14 C50, 744 F10 C40
I would not expect an old 744 to SYD anymore since there are very few left.

LH to BKK is usually F16 C64 with old C. Sometimes C78. Haven't ever been on the C99 on this route.

SFO probably one of the old C versions, no idea. I think only SIN/LAX/maybe NRT get the F16 C80 which is new C.

Just flu BKK-SYD in end of December and back in January and TG had old version of 744.

On BKK/FRA TG is using new configuration.

On BKK/FRA/SFO LH will have old version. If you can try to switch FRA/SFO to UA 744 and get E+ seat. The flight will be much better with more pitch then on LH.

There are only TGN and TGK left I think, and considering one should be on ARN-BKK, you need to be very unlucky to get one to SYD.

Thanks guys for your reponses.

Unfortunately I cannot swap to UA on that leg.

I am flying J class anyway, as I got a super RTW deal using these airlines and have to fly LH in and out of Germany and through BKK!

Any other suggestions would be good.

So it looks like Old J class seats on both Thai and LH which is why the fare is so good. Ah well, what can ya do?

Still will be good though.

So what is the 747 I'll be on TG like? I know it won't be new seats but what is the seat pitch like? Comfort? The very old TG planes look terribly crowded in J class!!

Ansett767, on one hand TG and LH old C class seats are not as good as new ones, but still comfortable to get a nice flight out of it, on the other hand you'll experience them, as very soon they will be completely out. Service level is excellent on both carriers in C class.

TGs C class is very interesting; galley is situated parallel to C class on main deck. Get a seat on upper deck if you can, it will feel less crowded.

On LH get a seat in the forward section of the C class. That will also be less crowded.
Enjoy your flight and don't forget to get us a trip report with pictures

Quoting SU (Reply 5):

This is a must if you want your meal choice. May I suggest 5D/G, great seats with lots of legroom. Window seats are impossible to get out if the front seats are reclined, so avoid them like the plague at least on the night flight BKK-FRA.

There are only HS-TGN and HS-TGK with the ancient crap in J nowadays, but of course with TG's Equipment Surprise Roulette you never know. But chances in case of a swap are better for a newly fitted than ancient if the "747" config is expected.

But TG just flew HS-TGP to ARN and sold the new lie flats as Premium Economy. Meanwhile TGK/TGN probably operated to MUC or similar, pissing off 50 premium pax. The incompetency level at TG is so high it's not funny.
