MAD-BKK Aircraft Type

Hi all,

Can anyone comment on recent experience on the Madrid-Bangkok sector?

Particularly how reliable it is for new 744 seats in J.

I know TG are renown for last minute changes but would like to know how this route compares to others in Europe currently.

I normally come out of FRA, FCO or ZUR and have no experience out of Madrid at all.

Thanks in advance!

Over the past month there was one day when TG949 was operated using an old config aircraft (HS-TGZ on 15th Sep).

If you check the link peridocially look for HS-TGA, TGB, TGF, TGG, TGY & TGZ...these are the ones you fear!

It has been reliable for the past few weeks. In September it was very bad with substitution almost every week.

I've read that LHR 744's economy class have now all IFE/AVOD.
I'm planning to visit Madrid christmas period.
SO, hopefully will have IFE/AVOD in economy class by then.

I don't think that's correct...yet.
