I'm flying to BKK in March and am sad to see that Eva Air have taken their 777-300ER off the route and replaced it with the 747-400. I was wondering whether these 747's have been fitted with the new cabins and IFE system? Does anyone know how many aircraft have been retrofitted? Finally...if the retrofitted aircraft are used on the LHR-BKK route, are all flights operated by them or only some? I appreciate that no aircraft type is guaranteed on a particular flight.
I've done a search for this question but never found the answer so my apologies if it has been covered.

Thanks for all the information, looks like we might be flying with them.
Quoting Pellegrine (Reply 4): Be glad you're on the 744 if you get it. From an enthusiast standpoint... They seem to be getting rid of them
I flew on their 777-300ER when they first used them on the LHR-BKK-TPE route and loved it, my first time on that particular type. I know the 744 is disappearing and it's an amazing aircraft, it's just nice to go on newer aircraft at times.
