At one point they had 3 L-1011 aircraft, 2 in an all-Y config and the other in a cargo config. As of currently, only o...

Re: What will change at Thai Airways after restructuring in 2020?

Their prehistoric 772 and 744 will probably still stay and still not have a planned replacement.

On a more serious note, more 787-9 and A350-900 orders complimented by an order of A320/A321NEO, and maybe their 77W fleet will be reconfigured with 3-4-3 Y.
