Interesting news indeed.

I wonder if TG are aiming to have a unique seat configuration for each and every aircraft type they operate....

Is this the Thompson Vantage? Looks like LX layout.

Hoping I get this on HKG-BKK next month

It does indeed look like the LX Vantage layout. Except they put the alternating rows on the other side of the cabin compared to LX

Looks for HS-TEN. I think it's the only aircraft sporting this configuration while the rest is being gradually retrofitted

I think they will end up with 3 types of flat bed in long haul fleet. For medium haul, 1 flatbed and 2 angled lie flat types

The 777-200ER is more likely to get the Solstys Seat like on the 777-300ER, but maybe with Premium Economy Seating

This looks similar to the MH330-300 business layout. Probably the screen shot gives a poor impression. as spk noted the layout is alternating 2-2-1 and 1-2-2.

Same basic layout (alternating 4 or 5 across), LX version of this seat is reported at 20.5" wide on SeatGuru.
