Still many reroutings to/from ARN pending for BKK/HKT and also HEL-BKK/KBV/HKT.clearly they are holding the new exHEL 145/6 for that purpose now.

Any thoughts about seat selection in premium economy? Is bulkhead worth it or even much better considering legroom? Apparently IFE screen is further away, but bigger on bulkhead seats. Is it positive or negative thing? If screen is too far away and you have plenty of space anywhere in that cabin, it doesnt really matter where you sit. For some reasons Im not able to select any seats, app or web page, so just thinking if this is a thing I should contact cs or not.

I've sat on PE once, LHR-HEL. The seat itself is comfortable but there is not that much legroom. I would definitely select the bulkhead.

I can confirm my own speculation, they were holding AY145/146 for the retouting/date changes due to cancellations. Im just waiting one ticket to be moved from AY141 to 145 now.

Also, as a side note, they have now also released normal revenue availability on the 145/146s but its mainly J/C buckets..nothing reasonably priced and most certainly no upgrade space..no idea how whY space is priced, though.

Looks like it is earlier than the 25th. I am flying on the 17th and both BKK-HEL flights are selling seats in premium economy on that day. My flight to LAX the following week will be the older seat so I will get a chance to sample both products.

25NOV is probably something AY can "guarantee" for both BKK flights.

Like at the moment 17NOV22 HEL-BKK AY141 C/W/Y and AY145 C/Y only..

Isn't it so that if Y starts from row 31->new J, if from 21->old J. I have few LHR legs on 350 and those seem to be frontmost seats a plat can choose.

Yes! On the London route, they don't sell PE so you could ask for a PE seat at check-in at no extra cost.

They used to advertise upgrades to comfort on the IFE screens in J so looks like you can finally experience it! 😂😂
