I think that you will also see these B772's sent to Australia.
It's been indicated by TG that as soon as they have enough of these aircraft, the current TG994/993 BKK-SYD-MEL-[HKT]-BKK service will be delinked.
There will be a dedicated non-stop MEL service and SYD service overnight back to BKK, as well as daily day service SYD-BKK and 5pw MEL-BKK.
The 5pw MEL-BKK is operated with an A346, but i wouldn't be surprised if they SYD-BKK day service becomes a B772, as AKL is now being delinked from that service, and a B744 may be too big for the sector.

According to the seat plan, the seat pitch on Y will reduce from 33" to 31".. is that true?
It will be a great dissapointment if they really reduce the seat pitch.. as thats what make TG different from other airline..!! Also.. 31" seems to be pretty tight compare to most Asian airline standard of 32".

I would be very surprised to see the day SYD/BKK go to a 772. The current flight while it does carry some AKL originating passengers is primarily SYD originating and has extremely good loads. As for the SYD/AKL vv, that may well go in favour of a code share with NZ, but that is a victim of the over capacity on the route and the butchered yields.
As for the night flight, I can see that going to the 772, hopefully still routing through Phuket on a few of the flights, going to be a crap arrival time in BKK though.
Also I believe Melbourne is still getting the MD 11 for the day flights, only heard of the 346 going to AKL, on the direct flight.
