It’s no doubt aircraft deliveries are a very exciting time for both airlines and their customers. Thai Airways today received their first A350 and wow, it looks fantastic!
The first destination for their A350 is Melbourne which is set to start September 16th. The aircraft got delivered today and will operate some domestic flights as training and testing for crews. It is expected that the aircraft will operate some Hong Kong, Chiang Mai and Singapore flights during this period.
Thai have fitted their newer version of their 777-300ER ‘Royal Silk’ business class seats on the A350 as well as a very similar economy product.
The airline has kept their economy in a 3-3-3 configuration which has made a lot of people relieved as a lot more airlines are increasing to 3-4-3 which is very tight.
The A350’s economy is also very identical to their 777 economy product.

Thai’s A350 looks brilliant, both inside and out. I’m hoping to be able to try this product out soon as well as their first class.
