Thai Airways has launched its first Boeing 747-400 aircraft after a series of retrofits across its fleet. The newly retrofitted Boeing 747-400 aircraft features a range of improvements. These include revamped passenger cabins and improved in-flight products.
They will operate on flights from Bangkok to London. A tentative date has been pencilled in for late October 2011. Afterwards this will be rolled out to a selected number of other European cities. Every seat in every class of service will be upgraded with the installation of personal screens and better in-flight entertainment systems. Flight connectivity has also been developed to offer passengers the freedom of staying connected whilst travelling onboard by installing a personal telephone system, should they wish to make use of such a service.
The project, which has been personally championed and led led by THAI’s president Mr. Piyasvasti Amranand, is reportedly an important part of ongoing development plans to retrofit a number of aircrafts in the fleet to better meet customer needs, exceeding their expectations when possible and boosting Thai Airways’ competitiveness.
Mr. Piyasvasti Amranand, siad: “With the first retrofitted aircraft now in operation, I believe that gradually, even before the introduction of the A380 to the Thai Airways fleet, customers will benefit from our improvements.”
