Has anyone flown Thai in First or Business? How was it? I have heard that the seats are old and worn. Service is good, but the aricraft are old and not that updated in F and C.

What has been your experience?

Their Business in terms of service, food, etc. is probably the best in the "business" (no pun intended!!!). But unfortunatley, their seats are WAY outdated, and the IFE could be improved on.!!

If you are flying ona 744, they have 2 configurations. The newer ones are used mostly on European routes. They have PTV & reasonably competitve F & C seats & seat pitch: 180degree recline & 85" pitch in F (or P) and 50" pitch w/full legrest in C (or J).

The older ones, definitely flown to LAX, have no PTV (though they have video walkmans for use), comfortable F seats and awful C seats. EVA Deluxe class, which is significantly cheaper, has better seats than the older TG C seats. And EVA has PTV.

Their inflight service is usually very fine. I have no complaints here. I flew TG LAX-BKK-SGN 5 or 6x /yr until this year. They have great discounts; you can fly business class for quite a reasonable fare. But their meager FF program & seating convinced me to stop flying them across the Pacific last August.

I think this a real shame. They have so much potential.

A couple of years ago, a Thai rep told me that they intended to upgrade their older 744s. It never happened. If you review the press releases on their site, seat upgrades are mentioned several times. I believe that their 773s are now being upgraded.

Curiously, a recent press release states their goal to be one of the top 3 airlines in the world. An ambitious goal.
