It makes little sense to fit these flat bed seats on Thai B777-200s.
These 777s are not ER, right? That means they have limited range and are only used on regional routes.
SQ's regional 777s have 2-3-2 configuration in business class, and are not flat bed.

This is from the Thai website - press release in August:
"The redesign of THAI?s Business and Economy Class seats on its Boeing 777-200 aircraft at a total of 8 aircraft of this type will be based on a new design created for increased passenger comfort. The aircraft seat arrangement for Business Class will be 2-2-2, enabling seat recline at 165 degree. Economy Class aircraft seat arrangement will be 3-3-3 replacing the 3-4-3 seat arrangement, making travel on this aircraft type more comfortable and spacious for passengers.
The airline has begun to refurbish the seats on its Boeing 777-200 aircraft, with completion expected within 12-15 months."
Doesn't say anything about the rest of the fleet, even though the 747-300's and older 400's could use some new seats....
