Finally TG starts upgrading their seats

THAIís Board of Directors agreed to select Business and Economy Class seats for Boeing 777-200 aircraft in accordance to the proposal put forth by the Subcommittee on Purchasing Aircraft Seats, which negotiated the price as follows: Economy Class seat selection was approved for Recaro Company and Business Class seat selection was approved for B/E Aerospace, based on two main points being technical qualities
and consideration of price.

The redesign of THAIís Business and Economy Class seats on its Boeing 777-200 aircraft at a total of 8 aircraft of this type will be based on a new design created for increased passenger comfort. The aircraft seat arrangement for Business Class will be 2-2-2, enabling seat recline at 165 degree. Economy Class aircraft seat arrangement will be 3-3-3 replacing the 3-4-3 seat arrangement, making travel on this aircraft type
more comfortable and spacious for passengers.

The airline has begun to refurbish the seats on its Boeing 777-200 aircraft, with completion expected within 12-15 months.
