Thai/Malaysia/HK People: Thai Sky Tristar Schedule

Fri Jun 17, 2005 8:17 am

Hi all

I will be in Hong Kong from 23 to 25 July and was hoping to be able to get a flight on Thai Sky's L1011 Tristar. Their website isn't up to date and there seems to be no email address i can contact.

Can anyone confirm for me what the airline's schedule will be for that period? If they aren't flying to HKG, I would be happy to still make my own way to bangkok and fly them to KUL if necessary. In fact, I am tempted to also fly Orient Thai's old 747 HKG-BKK as well - what chance is there of getting the venerable 747-100?

Also, what's the best way to buy a ticket on these 2 airlines? At the airport on the day?

Any help would be appreciated.

I noticed that Thai Sky's has flights scheduled in the CRS between BKK and KUL around 3 times a week using L10 planes.

I don't think they have any interlining agreements with other major carriers so the best option would be to book in a Thai Travel Agency or try to get a ticket on departure at the airport. Does anyone know, do they have a ticket counter at BKK?

From what I understand, the HKG flights are no longer operating. If they are, they are very sporadic...

They are no longer operating to HKG, although they are supposed to be back in July....but with them, who knows!

Thai Sky is not operating. Apparently they should start ops again 15JUL. I doubt that will happen...

OX is not flying 741s at the moment I believe. HS-UTH is in CGK for maintenance (or storage??), haven't seen HS-UTD for ages.
