    I just booked an award ticket and am having second thoughts about my BKK-ICN leg in business. I have until midnight to make changes. The flights below all leave in the same half hour.

    Options:
    OZ 742 Airbus A330-300
    TG 658 777-300
    TG 658 777-200

    I booked the OZ, but it has angled flat seats and I am not happy about that. I can't figure out the difference in the TG flights--would either have a fully flat seat?

    Thanks for any help!

    I believe that TG C is angle-flat on all their 777s.

    On the plus side, if you take TG in C out of BKK you get a 30 minute massage in the lounge prior to departure.

    Departing from BKK in Business or First in *A, you pretty much always want to be on TG due to better ground services, or so I hear.

    Thanks a lot Seth.
    Anyone know any distinguishing feature at all in seat comfort between TG and OZ?

    Thanks Rob. I am arriving TG F from SYD that same day, so the FC lounge and spa are considerations. I might have a shot at the F spa if I continue on TG.

    So, any way to distinguish between seats on the 2 TG flights?

    The 773 is 2-3-2; the 772 is 2-2-2.

    I also plugged the route in to RouteHappy and got the following results:

    They say that the 773 cold get you flat-beds but maybe not.

    Wow, thanks Seth for that. I hadn't heard of RouteHappy before. The 773 looks worth a gamble.
