I'm pretty sure that Thai has better seat pitch than Qantas so you will have more leg room in economy. But have a look at seatguru.com to check out the individual stats for economy seats on both airlines.

Ohhhh I feel your pain ! A bad hip ,knee and ankle ! Can't do Europe in Y so I'm afraid I have to turn left at the air bridge ! I know ,I know it's hard but someone has to do it ! All the best and I believe Thai has better pitch but all depends on aircraft type !

Qantas A380 economy is fantastic. For me, the little seemingly pointless foot net made a world of difference to comfort.
