Thai Airways (THAI) boasts an enviable array of long-range jets, but behind the glamour lies a tale of unexpected surprises for passengers.

Take THAI’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner fleet, where outdated 2-2-2 layouts clash with the modern 1-2-1 setup, leaving travellers feeling short-changed.

But salvation is on the horizon. THAI is gearing up for a monumental shift, with 45 cutting-edge Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners slated for delivery by 2027. This hefty order signals a farewell to ageing aircraft and a leap towards a sleek, fuel-efficient future.

Yet, the burning question remains: what will these new Dreamliners offer discerning passengers? With the clock ticking, the airline must soon finalise its business class design. And whispers suggest a paradigm shift towards opulent suites adorned with sliding privacy doors, 4K entertainment screens, and wireless charging – the epitome of modern luxury, reported Executive Traveller.

This strategic expansion includes a significant increase in direct flights to Europe and a robust recovery of routes to China, marking a milestone in THAI’s post-Covid-19 resurgence.
