Orient Thai Will Receive 3rd 747 This/next Month

Sat May 18, 2002 12:35 am

OX will get its 3rd 747 and this will be 747-300. I heard someone said it's from Chian Airlines but I think CI doesn't have any 747-300. Can anyone confirm this? I can only think JAL, PIA, TG ,Saudi, QF, AI, SA and KE have 747-300. Also OX is planning to fly to Tokyo and Paris.

Also Angel Air may resume operation later this year.

hkgspotter, I know it sounds a bit strange but the crew told me that Bangkok station had already prepared / changed (catering equipment,etc) for the 3rd aircraft.

Look for the a -400 in the future after they get the -300!!!
They are going for the whole Boeing fleet of 747's, maybe even a -SP  Nuts

I look forward to seeing the -300!

I think they should get a Boeing 747SP-38 from Qantas, and Boeing 747-436 from British Airways
