Wow. Great TR. Never knew SIN offered such a great service on an intra-Asian sector. I'd miss them too  Sad
Thanks for sharing.

Swiss, you mean. SAS, Finnair and Turkish also used to operate the SIN-BKK sector, but were forced to withdraw with the uprising of asian budget carriers.

Yeah too bad, all low-cost carriers pushed LX, SK, AY, TK etc. away. Leave us with only TG, SQ and CX.

Good old days with so many airlines operating this tag route including QF, IC, AZ?, LH?

I miss taking ID flights on Swiss and Scandinavian Business class for the short hop BKK-SIN-BKK.  Sad



Let's just blame it on yields.
