Today Thai operate 747-400 twice daily fight from London Heathrow to Bangkok with London-New-Delhi-Bangkok three times a week using 747-300/200. Thai also flies into Los Angeles twice daily from Bangok via Tokyo or Osaka using 747-400. Until the mid 90's Thai also operate Bangkok-Amsterdam-London, but since the delivery of 747-400, Thai inaugurated a Bangkok-London non-stop service along with Bangkok-New Delhi-London. Thai continues to fly into Amsterdam Sciphol but Amsterdam-London was suspended.
In the 80's Thai also flew into Seattle and Dallas/Fort Worth. Bangkok-Tokyo-Seattle-Dallas. The route was very seuccesful for a few years due to promotions but was later suspended. The route was operated by 747-200. Thai also flew to Canada in the 80's. Thai flew into Vancouver using 747-200 and on to Toronto using Airbus A300. In 1993, Thai flew A310 to Guam non-stop from bangkok, within a year, the flight was proven unsuccesful and was suspended. The flight to Canada was also stop due to the same problem.
