Targowski- I have heard they will use their A345s to launch two new US routes, most likely JFK and SFO. LAX may eventually be an A345 route, but I think for the meantime, it will remain a one stopper.

Thai is ending BKK-NRT-LAX, and will only operate BKK-KIX-LAX 4 times weekly.

Latest I heard is ... that the A345s will be in svc either late this year..or next and LAX is the #1 destination!

Sorry Copa...give it up...and just move down here! Well..at least wait til the beautiful Vietnam Airlines 777s arrive in SFO!

BN- Maybe I will. You guys are getting all the exciting shit down there. I was thinking about transferring to CSU-Long Beach, or CSU-Fullerton. Maybe I will, I don't know though, seeing the VN plane up here at the Intl. Terminal is pretty tempting.

I wonder about the rationale for such an aircraft in the TG fleet. SQ is using the A345 to snare high-yield biz traffic in an aircraft configured in such a way where a non-stop is feasible. But Singapore, along with L.A. and N.Y. are premier business centers. Is Bangkok such a lucrative destination for business passengers that the need to save 3.5 hours is in demand? Will TG be able to sustain a premium over the 1-stop service (on larger aircraft) to make this work? If the O/D traffic from N.Y. and L.A. (presuming these are the markets the A345 is deployed) is mainly leisure, I don't foresee how TG can sustain a premium in fare. And if that happens, then the aircraft becomes an ill fit in the fleet; not generating the revenue premiums that an all F/C layout on a non-stop of that length was designed to achieve.

There's a lot of premium business traffic that flies into BKK, N77014. Not everybody flies there to lie on a beach or to get a Thai 'massage'. Although some may argue that BKK also gets a lot of high yield non-biz traffic too. I do not have the figures, I cannot say.
