First TG A345 BKK-JFK Delayed 4+ Hours.

Sun May 01, 2005 6:55 am

Hey all,

As the topic says the first Thai BKK-JFK seems to be over 4 hours late already and its just keeps delaying. Does anyone have any info as to why its late or what is going on with it?

Any help is appreciated!

I could have made a stop in ICN and been on my way already!

Nevermind, this is just a hiccup and will soon be forgotten.

Possible winds not in its favour which means more fuel stops, or mechanical problems

I don't know if this is it but the weather in NYC/JFK is horrible. Been at or below minimums all day long. Getting worse now.

Maybe the winds are in favor of the flightpath. . .such a a long flight. . .it can probably easily catch up to the original ETA. I've noticed that the SIN-LAX flights sometimes arrive a few hours earlier than scheduled due to the winds. . .so maybe this is the same situation.  twocents
