Thai Airways is buying eight mid-sized Airbus A330 planes at a discount, in a deal with the European planemaker over delays to the A380 superjumbo...

Hi Lindsay,
Didn't realise TG had ordered the A380, an interesting choice for Thai, considering their load factors.
Glad to see us Brissos are getting new B777-200s with (nearly) layflats in J
Cheers

Well, at one stage they did have very good financials, as quoted in this story:

Thai Airways International Pcl, the country's biggest airline, said it expects profit to rise to a record 20 billion baht ($529 million) for the fiscal year ending Sept. 30 as it filled planes with more passengers...

One of the earlier news stories about Thai and their A380 purchases:

A senior Thai Airways executive has said the airline cannot rule out cancelling its order for six Airbus A380s because of production delays...

Are TG using the same J seats ex bne as they're using everywhere else Dee, or have they upgraded their product again?
