HS-TGE, one of Thai's 2 747-300s, has been delayed overnight by a mechanical defect for the second time in 2 weeks.
Originally scheduled for departure March 28th at 1320, 'Chutamat' is now departing on March 29th at 1000. About a week and a half ago she was delayed for a similar time, again with aircraft defects (windshield fault).
I wonder if this will be the final nail in the coffin for the dear old girl?

I flew in on -TGP today - nothing seemed wrong with it to me - except the IFE was not what was in the Magazine. I hope these delays dont become to frequent - I am due to be returning to SYD next friday on TG992, and I don't particularly want to be stranded here in NZ!
Anyway, its been a while since I have posted here, so hi again, and a happy easter to those celebrating it!

A little bit embarrasing in fact.
I flew HS-TGP on the 27 of december as TG961 ARN-BKK and then the inflight music were not the same as written in the Magazine. The channels were in a total disorder. For example, I searched for the "thai-channel" but could not find it. The movies were correct what I could remember (but I'm not a "flying-movie-fan").
THAI is excellent, but the inflight music you hear in your headset is not always easy to track in the inflight Magazine. I'm sorry to say.
But they have very good music. How about Dadawa "Crossing the Ridge", or Stina Nordenstam/Vangelis "Ask the mountains". Could life be better than enjoying this music on a THAI B747-300 with a gin&tonic in your hand?
