I used them a couple of years ago ex SYD-AKL and return on the 744. The seats were very basic in economy and the J and F seats were also basic. No PTVs to be seen. They offer a very cheap business class airfare to AKL but that is because their inflight seats do not compete with the likes of NZ or QF on the Tasman.
Their service was more than adequate.
They operate the MD11 out of Sydney now as well and they still have the old seats. I believe that some 744s were getting a new F product but that's all I know.

My sister's mother-in-law flew Thai first class a few months ago SYD-LHR and there wasn't a proper sleeper seat or personal IFE anywhere to be seen, either direction. It sounded like Olympic Airways business class on the 747-200 in the early 90s to me, ie not much cop. If you're paying for the ticket don't risk it (even though some planes are starting to get an update). What about BA business class? That's a proper flat bed, personal IFE, the whole works. Pricier than some airlines' business class (or even some first class services) but better than most first class services. Thai is a waste of time and money unless you want to remember first class in the 80s.
