Does anyone know when Thai will start service to ORD and what a/c they might use on this route. Also will this mean now that more Asian carriers might go to ORD such as Asiana, Air China, China Air, Malaysia Air might have service to ORD in the near future.

I have not heard that Thai plans to start service into ORD, there is speculation that Thai will open service to SFO in the near future, giving them a second gateway into the US (they now fly to LAX). As for the others that you mentioned, I do not know; with the world in an economic slowdown, new routes may not be opened out of ORD, or anywhere else, as quickly as we may have thought a couple of years ago.
