No sure what you mean by 1 PTV ?, they all have a touch screen PTV each. I flew MEL-BKK in J on the 346 a couple of months ago and had 11K, which was an excellent seat. As 11A would be, although I am a big fan on bulkhead window seats.

Quoting Chrisrad (Reply 6): As much as I had to tear myself away from MH, TG was offering J Class MEL-BKK-LAX, JFK-BKK-MEL, for half of what MH wanted. It was too good to refuse. MH uses the same seats in their new J class
chris, how much was the fare, if you don't mind me asking...
i did USA with CX recently for $8,000.
but TG still remains by fave in all classes... up there with MH!

I tried TG on a BKK-KUL run recently in J and was unfortunately rather disappointed. MH and SQ still both have better products in my opinion and it remains that both these carriers' service remains hard to faulter.
Will post a trip report once I get time to write it...

I don't think you can make a judgement from a flight as short as BKK-KUL in fairness. I mean MH on that route is hardly a life changing experience is it ?.
TG's new long haul J & F product is without doubt very good. It probably feels a little bit better than it actually is due to the antique stuff it replaced. I do think their new AVOD IFE system is better than MH though.
One thing they do seem to slip on at times is crew/service. Here I totally agree they are not up to SQ/MH standard as they are not consistent enough. When they are good, TG are up with the best. But one or two indifferent crews leaves them behind.
One thing I do think they beat MH on is their new AVOD IFE.
