Some weeks ago I was surfing through Thai's homepage, and came across a press release which said that TG would not retire their 4 a/c strong MD 11 fleet yet, because no suitable replacemnet "toy" have been found. I think that is nice because a pax Md11 is becoming more and more rare for every day. But I think its strange that they haven't found any replacement a/c. Wouldn't a 777 be a great choise?
Btw: did you know that all Tg 777-200 are geting 9 instead of 10 abreast seating in coach. Thats also great.

That was quite cool to hear, becaus that shows taht Thai don't want to get rid of the Md11 so soon.
Where did you find that info?
Do you also think taht the new 777 confing is a part of a program that will bring Tg back to what is was some years ago?

I know the son of the chief pilot, and also it appears in the CRS of the airline I work for!
Although I'm sure TG's new entertainment and seats will (when they appear) be on par with most other Asian operators, I don't think they can afford to be leader of the pack, with the current low value of the Thai baht, which is unfortunate, but I think TG is really managing very well given the huge handicap of the local currency! They have a nice modern fleet and still a high reputation.
As for the dirty planes - It's due to their constant ascents and descents through the air of Bangkok - but they are washed just as regularly as other airlines!
