Thai B777s

Sat Dec 09, 2000 12:55 am

hi! i never been on Y class before except some domestic inter-china flight when i visited china. i am travelling on Thai's b777 in X'mas so can someone tell me the seat pitch of its y-class (is it cool at the back, i wanna try, yet it's cheaper!)

do they have any modem for use (free or wat?) they have the electricity for your laptop?

which do you think is the best?

thanx in advance

p.s. also provide me something about their pitch and thingy..they are damn old!

Thai only received their last A300-600 this year, they no longer operate any B4's to my knowledge. In either case, they are nice up front, I don't know about their back.

I did fly on one of their 772's in economy, it was crowded. I believe seating was 3-4-3 though I am not sure, I had a window seat on the left side and it was definitely the left seat out of three.

I never flew with Thai B777 before. But based on my experience in SIA and MAS B777, they don't have powerplug and modem for laptop users in Y class. I don't think Thai has the premium class equipment for the Y class passagers. You paid for what you get. Wish you have an enjoyable flight.

I was on a Thai 777-300 and the seat pitch was not too good. The seat also doesn't recline very much, although the bottom articulates with the back, which supposedly makes it better. I found it very uncomfortable. But some people seem to like it.

My wife and i flew on Thai last FEB for our honeymoon, it was from Phuket to Bangkok on a beautiful B777-300, we were way in the back, but the pitch was good for a 1 hour flight, but crowded, it was a 3-3-3 but i enjoyed it a lot. im sure you will to! But the B744 going back to LAX was much better in spacewise, but the trendy b777-300 is a great experience!
Go for it!

thanx people. but dear Phileo,

i understand "you get what you paid"

but my flight was PEN-BKK-HKG-BKK-PEN
and it was about Malaysian Riggit 1000 (around US$263) on TG

but do u know wat? the flight PEN-SIN-HKG-SIN-PEN with SQ is only Malaysian Riggit 900 (around US$230)

i chose thai becoz we get to stay overnight at BKK!

guess wat, from what i know, SQ+MH+TG(i think) increase around US$80 on all flights in SE Asia. or maybe all.

I have recently flown on TG's A300-600 (check out the trip report forum). The plane HS-TAY was actually delivered to Thai on 15/12/1998.

Dear Airbus Lover,

My definition of 'you paid for what you get' refers to availability of laptop powerpoint and modem equipment in economy class (as directed in your post).

Yes, SQ has the cheapest fare in general for Malaysian. My 1 year SIA ticket (RM1700) to Perth is RM200 cheaper than MAS and RM70 cheaper than Thai. I would like to try Thai but unfortunately they don't have good connection for my flight which was start from Ipoh (returning sector as well). Even though MAS has the best conection time for my flight but unfortunately a bit over price and they don't have extra 10kg for students (only available for the first flight).

Anyway, wish you have an enjoyable flight.
