hey .... sorry for being off topic but you might be the right person to ask ..... the Thai A330 that flies Bangkok-karachi-Muscat is a A330-300 or A330-200??? far as i think it is the former
And secondly do you have any knowledge how is the Karachi-Bangkok route doing now that there is increased competition with Cathay also flying on this route.Alot of pax from KHI took Thai to other far-east destinations as well but a travel agent told me few months back that Cathay has taken alot of the traffic from Thai out of KHI. Your comments would be welcome.

Thai have announced on one of their press releases that the MD-11s will be out of service by September 2001.

Thai utilizes the A330-300 version on BKK - KHI - MCT route. Although CX has taken a lot of business from Thai on this particular route. Both airlines are still doing fine on the same route. CX and TG does not fly on the same day , with TG507 on TUE , THU , SAT , SUN and CX701 on MON , WED , FRI. You can also say that the 2 airlines focus on different market segment. Most of TG pax on TG507 are those from other asian countries using BKK as a transit point, while CX on the otherhand offers a very reasonable fare on that routing, for pasengers in Bangkok travelling to Pakistan.
