TG's New 744

Sun Oct 05, 2003 7:10 pm

I saw the picture no.434402 HS-TGF at BKK.

I wonder if they put PTVs on demand in all classes into that aircraft or not. Also the new Royal Executive class seats.

If anyone happen to fly HS-TGF or have the information please let me know.

When will HS-TGG arrive? Both are brand new from Boeing, right? (I read in Sawasdee magazine that both are new from Boeing)

Yes, they are brand new from Boeing. I think TGG will be arriving later this month as well.

I doubt that TG have installed PTV's throughout this aircraft, since its likely that TGF, like TGA and B has the "old" recaro seats in economy. As another thread stated, I'll guess that the TG 772 fleet is the first one due for newer seats. Like 3-3-3 in economy compared to today's 3-4-3.

As we are speaking of TG.

Anybody have some info about their Oslo flights and why it seems to be put on ice?
Info about their A340-500/600 will also be appreciated.

These 2 aircrafts have PTV in Royal First and Royal Executive class. Seat pitch 50 inch in Royal Executive and flat bed in First.

TG should have had a brand new upgraded product in all its newly ordered to be delivered B 744s...their J & Y products are hopeless compared to other airlines in the region. It is a shame that they havent taken advantage of this opportunity by making some much needed adjustments to it. Lets just hope that they do so with their A 345s and A 346s. When those planes come and hopefully with the new upgraded cabin features, I would hope that they refurbish their B 744s too especially the newer models!!!

I agree with Behramjee.

I really want those "damn silly" board people of Thai airways know what is going on with Singapore, Cathay, Malaysia etc. TG has absolutely nothing to compete with those airlines.

Any other idea?

TG has good inflight service, good seat pitch, good food, decent fare structures, and a modern fleet.

For a third-world country with an economy dragging itself out of the mess of 1997, that's not a bad effort at all.

Actually, it's all about Corruption inside TG. One of the most talk about topic in Thailand.

A340 will get new seats. For 744, however, since the board has not decided what to do with the seat improvement yet, they went ahead and install the same old seats.

interesting about Oslo.I checked both the website of Thai and Amadeus and they only show connections via Stockholm or Helsinki.
Hopefully it will evetuate, however TG have this habit of adding and quickly ending routes.

Thai was supposed to start their thrice weekly Oslo service from 01.01.04. It has been announced both in media and adverts, however Thai seems to change their mind as quick as "the wind changes direction".

I guess SARS in Asia might have something to do with this delay....
