THAI slightly revamped their long haul product so it has a higher seatback shell and glossier finishes, which were featured on my flight. Keep in mind that these flights are also used for flights as long as from Bangkok to Madrid (though they’re revamping for Solstys style business class seats, which are much better for long flights), so while I don’t think I could stand the seat for that long, it’s definitely more than enough for a short three hour flight.
We settled in our seats, 15A and 15B, while my mom and my sister settled in the row behind. The colours aren’t the most aesthetically appealing, especially with the pinkish-red pillow and headrest, and it seems like the new cabins on their 777-300ERs also have these colour tones, so I’m not too impressed.

To my left were the seat controls, which are fairly intuitive. The massage function works, though it’s not spectacular.

On our seat were a pillow and blanket. While the pillow was fine, the blanket was fleecy, thick and more than enough for a short flight (though I hope they have more substantial blankets for long hauls as well).

I sat down, and acquainted with the seat. THAI’s business class seats on their Airbus A330 are twenty inches wide, and feature a reading light, a pretty huge flatscreen TV, a “handle” at the top of the seat and universal power ports. Unfortunately, the seat didn’t feature a USB plug, so I had to plug my phone in my computer to charge (stupidly I forgot to bring the power plug with my cable).
