Economy seating on a TG 777-200 ER rows 51 to 59 versus 31 to 46?

According to Seatguru rows 51 to 59 have less pitch then other economy seats on TGs 777-200 ER. According to the TG website all seats have a pitch of 34 inch.

As my girlfriend and I are booked on a heavily discounted W-class ticket (BRU-BKK-RGN-BKK-BRU), TG only allows advanced seat selection from rows 51 to 61.

Is it worth asking seats in rows 31 to 46 at check inn or do the rows in the back section (for the moment we are on seats 53A and 53C) have the same pitch as the front section and is Seatguru outdated on this one?

Booking class W

Thai are using the 777-200ER between BRU and BKK.

I found a seatplan that states the same pitch (34") for both 51-59 and 31-46.

This one says the same:

The 777-200 however has a different layout:

In this report you notice that at least at the launching date they used HS-TJW which is a 777-200 ER.

I think and I hope seatguru is wrong. You wille have 34" pitch IMO.

Btw we are also flying with Thai to the region in November 2012.
Will be visiting Laos-VTE and returning from Cambodia-PNH.
We got the same remark from our travelagent about limited seating possibilities in W class.
The low price of the ticket (+/- 800 euro) makes up for relatively unfavourable seating.
Hopefully we get the same food as the other pax.

In 2011 we went to Myanmar with Malaysia Airlines from Paris CDG.
Their 777 has 2-5-2 layout (and 34" pitch) which is much better and more comfortable for couples than Thai's 3-3-3.
Malaysia Airlines in Brussels did our seating by phone and email without hassle or questions. We could change it during online check-in.
However no limitations to certain rows with MAS.

Thumbs down

The 777-200(ER) will eventually get new seats at 32" pitch.
The new 777-300ER has a mere 32".
Only the old 747 will keep a generous 34".

Comparing airlines just got easier for tall people...
