Thai Airways reportedly plans to deploy its three B777-300ERs dry leased from Jet Airways on services to Bangkok, Paris and Tokyo Narita from 01-Jun-2010, upgrading its Premium product on these routes (Business Traveller, 06-Apr-2010). The aircraft are configured with eight First class suites and 30 lie flat seats in Business class, both in 1-2-1 configuration, and 274 Economy seats. The carrier is reportedly planning to lease three more B777-300ER aircraft from Air India to operate on key routes while its B747-400s, currently operated on the routes, undergo upgrades with new seating. The three aircraft are scheduled for delivery to Air India in Oct-2010.
