There is limited legroom due to the IFE box under the front seat. Impossible to stretch legs.
48D has a leg room problem. There is a small black box under 47D which inhibits full leg extension. After 5 hours it started to get on my nerves.
The seat was horrible, it couldn't recline fully into a flat bed unlike the 777-300ER which can the screens were unavailable for the hole flight but the crew were friendly and helpful.
Was a little disappointed by the lack of width of the seat especially when fully reclined. It was too tight to get into and out of the seat space also. The tv screen control did not seem to work and I had to resort to touching the screen which was mot easy having to lean forward from a recline position. The small seat side light seemed unnecessary with an over the top light. Fully reclined seat space was ok for me but tight for someone over 6 feet tall. Service was very good and good food choice from the menu. Seat 11f has to use the overhead bin over 11g. Not much room around you for too many bits and peices.
The access to the seat is not as easy as the A380 used on the outward journey. The screen controls are difficult to follow and I ended up using a combination of handheld and touchscreen which meant leaning forward all the time, most frustrating. The seat re line controls are are the edge of the side table and were not very responsive,again nowhere near as good as the A380. It has a small side light, this is an extra to save turning on the better overhead light. Not really worth the effort but guess saves bothering other people around you. The seat width does not seem as good the A380 and when in flat bed mode there is not enough room to move around. I would try to avoid this model of plane in the future.
Excellent in all ways. Seat roomy and comfortable. The staff were amazing, very helpful and efficient. The meals were very good for economy and fresh fruit and juice was served with all meals. The on site entertainment was very varied and the time passed very quickly. We would definitely fly with Thai Airlines again.
I sat 31 row along with my girlfriend and son. This seats are no problem for us with infant.
First time flying with Thai Airlines. Our Seats where in good location , not to noisy and handy having isle seat to get up and down, love that the overhead lockers that push back into roof space which means no more bending or ducking to get in or out of seats. Plane was full to capacity. Drinks a plenty and very friendly attentive staff. I had gluten free meals which where very nice while my partner had the standard. All meals where a very good standard and enjoyable for plane menus. Rest rm facilities kept clean and stocked, even supply cologne. We are both tall (5'11 & 6'2) so we both found leg room cramped and after 9 hours . Overall would rate this a great plane and fantastic Thai service.
The seats in this exit row have a lot of leg space to the front. But at my hip width (jeans size 34) or above I would consider the seat width unbearable. It's not the usual fixed arm rest, but has another 3-4cm reduced width to the side due to the entertainment system controls placed there. Luckily only a 2h flight, can't imagine it long distance.
The seats are close to each other. I am 179cm tall and my knees are touching the magazine holder. Another point for all seats on the isle, they have the entertainment box under the seat in front of you limiting drastically how much space you have to put your feet. W
A nice seat for two in 777 in exchange of being next to the galley.
This plane layout takes cattle class to a whole new level. When the seat in front of me put their seat back it was literally 3" in front of my nose. So cramped.
Have flown on Thai Airway TG 473 and TG 474 from Brisbane to Bangkok and return many times over the past few years. I have to say that each time we are sat in different rows and OMG the seats are the most uncomfortable ever, so cramped and as for leg room, well, another story, there is none. There is no room if you wanted to stretch your arms . Oh sorry, there is but you will have your elbows/arms in the passengers face sitting next to you. As for the meals, terrible. I am gluten free and the only tasty food on the tray is the gluten free bread and the biscuit that are packaged by Rowes. The actual meal itself has not changed in all the years we have flown. Same old, same old, every single trip. Gluten Free is more widely known about now and foods are a whole lot better then what they use to be, so i don't understand why we keep getting dished up the same awful food. I also have to say that the attitude of flight attendants over the years is somewhat disappointing. Just an observation from the years flying Thai. Thank you
Normally I fly Star Alliance since they pretty much cover a lot of destinations. I flew from ICN to BKK and was assigned 32C. Yes, the seat has tons of space for your legs, but since you have no seat in front of you, there is virtually nowhere to put your belongings during the flight (magazines, phone/tablet, headphones, etc). I always use TG since I like their service and food. However I felt that the cabin crew were a bit on a rush and not friendly at all. They weren't exactly rude but I expected the usual smile and kind service I'm used to. The girl never smiled. She did her job ok though. For an almost 6 hour flight, I think the seat was ok.
The design is very poor. The business class offers too little space. Forget the 163 degrees recline. This is for small people only. Food was very inacceptable. What a downgrade !
The back row seats (row 72)are first to get food/drink service.Also there is 2 less seats in the 2 back rows,more room to stand up for a stretch, close to toilets.And no one behind to keep pushing their knees into the back of the seat.Last time i flew TG474 Brisbane - Bangkok the whole back row (72) was empty except for me
I would prefer the old 747 all times. I was seated on 71B (there are 72 in all) so it was in the back. The chairs feels smaller. I can not say in what way. I looking in seatmap guide they actually are wider. But feels smaller than old 747 anyway. The seat pitch is less too than 747. I think the difference is 2 inch less. All this together makes me feel that the all together seat comfort was better in 747. And not to forget, the seat recline is really bad!It was much more loud in the back of the plane than in the middle when I was walking around. Otherwiase the food was same thai airways style as always. The cognac is still some unknown brand that tastes shit. Same for the other liqour brands. They are all some unknown brands except the gin. But hard to complain if it is for free, But I would gladly pay for a cognac brand that is drinkable. The service is as always very good on the thai flights. There was a lot of heavy turbulens on the flight as well. I have never had that before when flying with 747. Can this be related to the aircraft??OK, every seat has its own screen. I can not say anything about the movies i only listen to music and that was OK I guess. Not so many known artist there though so after I while I took out my ipod anyway. In my opinion, the buying of 777 is a step down. The screen opinion is maybe nice for families with kids but nothing for me. Who want to see James Bond on a badly 10 inch screen? Not me anyway. Better try to sleep.
I sat here on a long international flight. I found that people where asked to return to their seats when getting up to stretch. They didnt stay up and bther me. This seat got food first and the staff was always there to help.
We were looking very much forwards to fly back home after 6 month in Thailand with the brand new Boeing 777-300er, but we were extremly disapointed because of very large noice from the engines and less legroom compared with the Boeing 747-400 they have always used for this flight. In over 10 years we have each year been flying with Thai Airways to Thailand with the 747. But now we consider to change Airline because we are not at all happy with the 777-300
Boeing 777-300ER. Plane seemed new. IFE Was great. Food was normal airline food, Both Dinner and Breakfast was served on this 11Hour flight. 40Minutes delayed out of BKK but arrived 1Hour early at CDG. Overall a good flight.
