TUIfly / Arke Boeing 787 Seat Question

I have one question. It seems to be difficult to pull a reliable seatmap on the TUIfly/Arke Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner from the internet.

That plane apparently has four classes of service: Economy, Comfort, Premium, Star. Moreover, there seems to be two aircraft configurations out there.

Does anyone have an idea about the Premium layout? Is it 2-3-2 or 3-3-3?
I saw a good deal on Premium. However, when checking the internet search results, websites show "Premium" seats. But I am afraid the photographers mistaken them for Star Class seats, thus, I do not consider these sites to be reliable.

This is the seatmap (cut and edited by me), which can be seen on the official tui.nl website. Which section is Premium?

According to this http://airline-update.com/seat-pitch...-8-dreamliner/

Star class is being phased out leaving 2-3-2 Premium at the front, 3-3-3 Comfort class with 33" pitch in the middle and 3-3-3 Economy with 30" pitch at the back.

The "The 47 Premium Economy seats" also matches your seatmap so it would seem you have one of the aircraft with Star class removed.

ok thanks for the answer and the link.

After some research I assume that some TUI flights from Amsterdam are operated by Thomson UK, who also operate the Dreamliner. The seatmap is almost the same. Is this correct?
I am wondering because TUIfly Netherlands only has 3 Dreamliner. Thats not enough to cover all their routes.

My biggest fear is that TUIfly is downgauging the flight to a Boeing 767-300ER.
