Well when they first recieved this aircraft it was installed in the stock or usuall maner where they get the big screen in the middle and on top they have those tv's like what we see in the picture. However in the mid 90's SQ installed these in seat tv's but never bothered to take the main ones out, probably because there already there and why bother of getting rid of them, besides that might cost extra. I think for now they use it as a in flight map.

I don't know why they have double, but maybe it is because the main screens shows important info like safty, location, speed...

On your answer about The airlines i can tell you that
Thai is the best airline i ever flown with. The fa's have to bee the nicest in the air, the planes clean, and nice, and food is good. The landings is mainly very smooth.
I can give you more info if you let me konw which routs you will fly. I flew 10 TG flights last summer.

Singapore is also nice, but i only flew on their A310-?
for about 45 min (sin-klia) The service was good, but the legromm wasn't the best. Landing was some hard, and the pilot stoped to long in front of the gate so we had to wait 10 mins until they managed to open the door. But i think it was a nice flight at all.

I didn't know that sin-bkk was served by a330 which airline is that?

On the TG flight i can tell you that it is something to look forward to.

The 744 is nice with blue and new seats, the oich is good to , and the service is exelent. I think you will leave soon after midnight (00:30) ore something. Soon after take of you wil be served dinner with two choices and usualy one of the is chicken and the other meat or fish. The they shows flim (no ptw's) and the plane falls asleep. when you are over moscow, or alittle bitt nearer ARN the great btreakfast wil be served. I think it wil be omelet with sausages, and chicken. bread, yam, yoghurt, and some tasty fruit. Then you can wait for the smooth landing carried out of the skilled thai crew.

I think it wil bee a great flight. The only bad with it is that you don't flies on the 747-300.

I have flown Bkk-Cph, so your flight has to be quite the same i think.

Lauda 777!

I don't have ICQ.

Of cours Thai has a330. (it was so stupid of me to forget that)

I think the 743 is better because it has little better legroom, and the interiour in the little older a/c makes you fell more like home.
This is just my oppinion, and the legroom is almost the same (don't worry)

Can I ask were you are from an dhow old you are.

I'm 15 from norway
