TG are picking up these two Emirates in the Gulf, both have had bad luck with East Asian carriers in the past, Bahrain is now served by only Cathay Pacific, while Abu Dhabi by China Airlines, Garuda Indonesia and Royal Brunei, previous operators have been Korean Air, Singapore Airlines, Philippine Airlines and Cathay Pacific for both states, additionally Royal Brunei and China Eastern in the case of Bahrain. Lets see how Thai fare on the routes.

The Middle East is a fast-growing travel market, EK's expansion proves that. Many airlines are expanding their operations to the Middle East, increasing flight frequencies or opening new routes. TG should do well I think.
