I am expecting a bad news on that. Having my fingercrossed that the rumor I have heard is not true.
Anyway, Thai seemed to have slightly better relationship with Airbus. We used to be the largest A300 operator in Asia, with maintenance facility at DMK (still using code BKK back then) A330 has seen a long life and the new fleet with RR engine+new AVOD are ordered to replace those early build ones while 772 is just retrofitted with new seat and outdated entertainment system.
From that observation, couple with the news that Airbus will build a new MRO facility at U-Tapao I would expect Boeing fleet to be marginally outnumbered by A350 and/or A330neo
News about MRO facility agreement, just in case someone get curious
