"little point in paying extra"

(Australia)

The review is not so much about the seating facility rather the seats allocated my partner and I flew Thai TG 481 Bangkok to Perth on a Q class fare according to all the info I have from Thai a Q class fare brings certain entitlements including seating no further back than row 50 and also air miles accrual if a frequent flyer. On check in we were dumped into row 63 the last row against the toilets these are seats normally set aside for V or W class fare passengers - and in this instance Thai cabin crew. It comes down quite clearly to a case of Thai overselling the flight. There is little point in paying extra or a full fare if it doesn't mean better seating.

"very dated seat but good pitch"

(United Kingdom)

Very dated seat but good pitch. No adjustment for heightening the seat back. The top of the seat back was level with my neck. Very poor head support at each side of the top of the seat back. Very old fashioned in-flight entertainment system - grainy screen on each bulkhead with no choice of entertainment.

"a generous recline"

(Thailand)

BKK-LHR-BKK. 34 inch pitch is more than many other airlines offers and a generous recline. For a 12 hours flight between Thailand and Europe this becomes the best choice - especially with the added bonus of kind efficient cabin crew great food and complimentary wine beers etc

"amongst the best seats in economy"

(United Kingdom)

I fly Thai for the extra legroom of the other carriers to Australia from London (Malaysia excepted). With 34 inches and a good recline it is amongst the best seats in economy. The downside is the pitiful central TV screen apparently they are updating their aircraft soon so the LHR-BKK sector has an avod system. II managed to sleep for nearly 8 hours on the BKK-LHR a record for me. At 6 foot tall leg room is very important.

"only downside being no personal IFE"

(United Kingdom)

Seat 52K BKK-LHR superb seat and would recommend others to book. Its the last row before a gap for the exit so nobody sat behind you. Superb service with the only downside being no personal IFE. Take your I-pod and it would be hard to find a better economy airline. Better than EVA and BA.

"legroom on Thai is excellent"

(United Kingdom)

LHR-BKK-LHR. The legroom on Thai is excellent so much better than other airlines. Service is good and food is good. It makes the long flight so much more pleasant. Only downside is no seat back IFE - take your own if you can.

The seats are very comfortable. Probably the most comfortable I ever flew with. It was a highly pleasant experience even it was only Economy. Can only recommend.
