I find this review suspicious, TG employee maybe?7th October 2015 at 09:07 #585989
I have flown them in J class and did not enjoy it, small seat and feels more like a coffin if you sit in the outside seats. I am 1.85 cm tall and could not confirmedly sleep.7th October 2015 at 21:17 #585990
I also flew this aircraft from BKK=KUL, a short flight for this aircraft. Interestingly I fly Etihad’s 789 tmrw, be interested to compare as the 787-8 did feel small and look it ,as we boarded by steps, as many TG flights at BKK.
I certainly enjoyed the seat which the crew told me was on the A380, and going on the 773’s now also. In Biz, it was only 3 across, where-as others plan 4 across, excellent service. I made a review on Seatplans some weeks ago.
It was a very pleasant spacious aircraft in J, and the seat was just as comfortable on the A380 I took between BKK and HKG more recently.9th October 2015 at 11:59 #585991

when we flew Bangkok-Perth we had 2-2-2 seating in business class and also on there website it is marked as 2-2-2, so sorry to say I do not know where you had 3 across10th October 2015 at 11:28 #585993
Took a flight from AMS to SFB (Orlando Sanford) yesterday on a TUI 787-8 in Comfort class, basically economy with a 33 – 34 inch pitch. Very much comparable to Thompson.
Actually very comfortable experience seat wise. Yes, it’s no full fledged business class, but for a quick vacation trip very acceptable. The price, including the upgrade to Comfort (~ 15 UKP) came in at ~350,- return.
Not bad and out of the airport and in to a rental car within 30 minutes.
Like the OP: maybe not the best airline in the world but still a very acceptable product in a brand new airplane, especially for the price paid.
So why would you hit on this OP in this way?10th October 2015 at 11:50 #585994
You ask “So why would you hit on this OP in this way?”
Like you, I’ve flown the 787 in a premium economy class and found it very comfortable.
I’ve also tried sitting in a Y seat and it was really tight for pitch and shoulder width, certainly not an ‘Exceptional, fantastic comfy seat.’
Therefore, unless the OP is short and thin at the shoulders, I join others in taking a somewhat guarded view of this glowing praise.10th October 2015 at 15:18 #585995
Let’s assume that the OP is an Asian. Typically they are a lot leaner and certainly less tall than us Europeans and Americans.
I can imagine he or she had a very comfy ride, where you and me would have had serious troubles with the available space.
Don’t we lash out at each other a bit too much and too fast nowadays?
A little bit of common courtesy and proper respect for anyone’s opinion would be in order on this forum. I certainly don’t want to revert to the situation of a couple of years ago when bashing seemed to be the norm.
Let’s keep it friendly.
Oh, and I agree with you that the “somewhat larger” (almost anyone over 175 cm and of a normal build) amongst us will have increasing problems travelling in Y. Especially with long haul charter flights I find a 29 inch pitch and 17 inch seat width incredibly tight. But hey, if you don’t want to or can’t spend a little more on your travels…..
