Actually, not exactly, your example would not qualify as being "thin". A 747 on a route nearly from one coast to another is not thin. If it was a 737, or A32X model, or even an 757, then it would be a long think route. Not to say that only a narrowbody can serve long thin routes, just aircraft with lower capacity.
