Two points where the design fails, in my opinion, the black plastic insert in the middle, looks quite cheap. And the quite broad black band for the zipper.,though admittedly some of the lighter colured Rimowa did have a tendency for this as well.

No Thai logo? I always find it a bit odd, when airlines don't brand the stuff...

How was the new PJ?

the new PJ was great, the recent non brand one (got several from the same type this year) was also very good, better then some in the past...

I did also like the prior iteration of the PJ, let's see when I get a chance for this one.

How are the new products in the kit?

Hopefully this is a short term Rimowa supply glitch, and the Porsche kits are just a stop gap measure.
I have a TG F flight in early February and will report back.

Hopefully not a "cost cutting measure" or a Thai VVIP manufacturer who pulled in the contract for these Kits.
"Why pay Rimowa if you can pay me instead? They all look the same, and I can make it cheaper", might have said a connected Thai VVIP.

I do not think so!
if you google the item, you will see that it has popped up at other airlines...
TG is certainly not keen to get involved with any copycat products and Thailand is trying hard to get rid of such Reputation
Even the Deputy Prime Minister wears genuine and not fake Rolex; I heard he has quite a collection...
