Thai Airways Receives B777-300ER With New Onboard Product

Thai Airways International boosted its widebody aircraft fleet earlier this week with the delivery of a new Boeing 777-300ER jet. Named ‘Philavan’ and registered HS-TKK, the aircraft is the first of 8 leased from Singapore’s BOC Aviation and features an improved cabin product.


The airline has elected to configure the jet in a 2-class layout, with 42 flatbed seats in Royal Silk business class and 306 seats in Economy class. The former is new to Thai Airways and is positioned in a staggered 1-2-1 layout offering direct aisle access, greater storage and a 180-degree full flatbed, while Economy class features an 18-inch wide seat with 32-inch seat pitch.


Passengers in both classes benefit from a new inflight entertainment system delivering nearly 100 movies, 150 television programmes, 500 music albums and 60 video games on-demand to their personal screen. A connectivity suite enables passengers the convenience of using their mobile phones onboard for voice calls and messaging.


Thai Airways will initially deploy the aircraft on its Bangkok (Suvarnabhumi) – Tokyo (Narita) route, with Brussels, Los Angeles and Seoul (Incheon) listed as future destinations. The jets join a successful subfleet of the same type leased from Indian carrier Jet Airways and are part of a greater fleet renewal plan that will see Thai Airways take delivery of its first Airbus A380 later this year.
