I wonder about the rationale for such an aircraft in the TG
is using the A345 to snare high-yield biz traffic in an aircraft configured in such a way where a non-stop is feasible. But Singapore, along with L.A. and N.Y. are premier business centers. Is Bangkok such a lucrative destination for business passengers that the need to save 3.5 hours is in demand? Will TG
be able to sustain a premium over the 1-stop service (on larger aircraft) to make this work? If the O/D traffic from N.Y. and L.A. (presuming these are the markets the A345 is deployed) is mainly leisure, I don't foresee how TG
can sustain a premium in fare. And if that happens, then the aircraft becomes an ill fit in the fleet; not generating the revenue premiums that an all F/C layout on a non-stop of that length was designed to achieve.
