Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra was on an official state-visit-tour to Germany and France between 17 and 21 July.

Cheers!

A really nice aircraft! I wonder if it will ever go back into TG service.

Doubtful. They took all of their a345s out of service because they couldn't find profitable routes for them. I believe TG is looking for new operators for them, and happened to find one in the gov't (at least for one of them for a while).

HS-TLA, HS-TLB and HS-TLC are stored at DMK. All TG 345 are for sale. There are no plans to bring them back into normal airline operation since BKK-LAX turned into a BKK-ICN-LAX operation.

I wonder if EY would ever look into picking these planes up. They seem to like theirs, amd they are expanding their network, with which these could help.

EY is/was selling their A345s to Conviasa. I don't know if it is still going to happen or if the deal fell through, but either way I would not expect them to be interested in picking up more.

I'm sure the EY A345's were going to operate a new IAD route so they won't be going anywhere!
