Thai Airways are known for many things. Apart from being as smooth as silk, some interesting fleet sizes and products, they also love to chop and change aircraft equipment around.
And it seems they can’t keep their hands off the Heathrow route, with airline to introduce Boeing 777-300ER’s on the route to replace Airbus A350 introduced on the route last year.
The flight pair being affected is TG916/TG917 flight pair between Bangkok and London Heathrow is the one that’s getting the change-around.
The changes are loaded in the Thai Airways timetable, and the route is available to book
It’s worth checking your seat assignments if you’re on TG916/917, as there may be a chance your seat selection is no longer valid. The Airbus A380 service between Bangkok and London (TG911/TG910) retain A380 service is retained as-is.
Business Traveller has a comprehensive look at the changes (including seat counts), but as passengers – be aware. There will be changes to the passenger experience.
As usual when it comes to equipment swaps, some will be happy, others won’t be. With Thai Airways legendary ability to change, swap and move equipment around, expect more swaps in the future.
Well, it’s easier than actually offering a stable product to the customer.
