Thai Airways introduced a new aircraft interior design dubbed the Thai Contemporary Concept in its latest Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in February 2014.
The new interiors are being introduced on aircraft operating on routes linking Bangkok with Los Angeles, Singapore, Shanghai, Seoul, Copenhagen, Stockholm, and Oslo.
In the Business Class (Royal Silk Class) cabin, the Thai Contemporary Concept creates a warm and relaxing environment with areas decorated with wood slats, silk, traditional Thai designs and purple seat upholstery.
Economy class seats are more colorful with a design combining purple and orange for the upholstery. Other features include more foot space and a seat function control unit designed to be seen from all angles (Royal Silk Class), a larger wash basin and automatic sensor faucet (Royal Silk Class) and eX2 modern in-flight entertainment.
Thai Airways’ new Boeing 777-300ER aircraft will seat 348 passengers with 42 seats in Royal Silk Class and 306 in economy class.
Royal Silk Class seats features include enhanced privacy, 180 degree recline, 20 inch seat-width, staggered seat positioning for easy aisle access, 16-inch personal entertainment screens, new touch screen remote control, Audio Visual OnDemand (AVOD) eX2 system with over 100 movies, 150 documentaries, 500 CD albums and 60 games.
