Even at the best of times, that route for TG was very low yielding so I would think it is pretty unlikely unless TG USA Sales has managed to somehow miraculously work their magic with revenue management.

I flew NYC-BKK a lot of time.. usually did JFK-NRT-BKK or JFK-LHR-BKK.
I think one of the fast way to go to BKK from NYC is to go via ARN:
EWR-ARN-BKK (by SK, TG or SK all the way in some season)
from BKK to NYC... I still think that go through NRT, ICN, HKG are all almost the same and pretty fast.

I have done JFK-BKK (TG) ATL-FRA-KUL-BKK, EWR-ARN-KUL-BKK, IAD-JFK-JED-BKK, IAD-LHR-FRA-BKK, LAS-BOS-LHR-BKK etc but I do not really feel more comfortable than just going Trans-Pacific even from the East Coast. The last time I did eastbound CI JFK-ANC-TPE-BKK was a bit of a nuisance, the wake up call in ANC... is a turn-off for me. cause I like sleeping all the way. And the sleep portion of the east bound Europe connection can be a little hard sleeping only 3-4 hours on plane then layover in Europe a bit then finally get sleep again on the SE Asia leg.
Best route from JFK I took would be JL JFK-NRT-BKK, that was decent for me, if you want an international departure out of JFK.

Quoting LXA333 (Reply 17): I'll probably be looking at a route via Europe most likely ARN, ZRH or LHR. I'll be flying Y by the way since I'm only a student and do not wish to be spoiled to the parents hehe.
Well if you are flying in Y I would recommend BA for you, JFK-LHR-BKK.
If you want try something not so common I would go EWR-ARN-BKK. That is a nice routing, and ARN is a nice airport, so no stress or anything like that compared to LHR.

Quoting Stylo777 (Reply 5): you can add
LH via FRA
BA via LHR
AF via CDG
KL via AMS
TK via IST
to that list as they also offer good connections with only 2-3h layover at their respective hub.
Flying USA-BKK via CDG with AF is not really an option as the layover in CDG will be very long. With the notable exception of AF067 LAX-CDG which arrives at 5:30 pm, almost all other USA flights arrive in CDG between 6:00 am and noon. And the AF flight to BKK departs CDG only at 7:35 pm.

Quoting LXA333 (Reply 17): Do companies charge more if when I come back I want to stop in Europe for a week?
I have done that once with SQ (bought through travel agent) and another time with BA (from their website)
-I did EWR-AMS/CDG-SIN-BKK, at the time SQ flew EWR-AMS but you can still do the same on their JFK-FRA, then fly out from any other place SQ flies to in Europe.
-I did BA and stop at both Paris and London (add another short hop between LHR-CDG) when i did JFK-LHR-BKK
I think the way to get this cheap is to do through travel agent. If you try to do stop over from airlines website it usually is super expensive.
I also like to stop by Tokyo sometimes when i did JFK-NRT-BKK because the flight is pretty long (almost 14 hrs on JFK-NRT) but much shorter the other way around.
Quoting Superfly (Reply 20): what are the layover times for the routes I suggested?
Most TG flights leave Europe around noon time (except Munich and Moscow) so if you fly from the east coast and arrive Europe before 11am should make the connection.

And a speciality for those MD-11 lovers on AY website: JFK-HEL-BKK
MD-11 still available on JFK-HEL this winter season, will be replaced by A333 next spring. The AY connection means a LONG layover in HEL, plenty of time for sight seeing...
