As likely as you and me guzzling Dom on a 747-300 to HKG.
|Quoting Superfly (Reply 3):|
The current 777-200 one stop and previous A340-500 non-stop only offers business class as the most premium on this route. The new business class lay-flat seats are not that comfortable.
|Quoting lawair (Reply 8):|
If this route switches to the 77W as was planned, then at least you'll have an even newer lie-flat business class seat, the same as you would have gotten had the A380 flown the route. Still no first class though.
|Quoting LAXintl (Reply 9):|
Neither one can even maintain daily service on their current flights to LAX.
|Quoting lawair (Reply 11):|
I'm not commenting on the profitability of the LAX-BKK route for TG, because it probably isn't profitable. But they do want to go daily on BKK-ICN-LAX; TG is just restricted by Thailand's bilateral with Korea from doing so.
|Quoting kaitak744 (Reply 13):|
Thai airways currently does 4x weekly 777-300ER. This would go to daily first before any A380, or even a 747.
|Quoting g500 (Reply 2):|
I heard about Thai and Malaysia decreasing LAX recently but I think it's logical to think their A380s will land at LAX at some point

|Quoting aaway (Reply 16):|
Having a money-losing route to Asia ex-LAX doesn't preclude the initiation of A-380 service - reference China Southern. But, I digress...
|Quoting caliatenza (Reply 19):|
What separates MH and TG from say.. SQ..? which has been able to operate North American routes profitably
|Quoting Superfly (Reply 14):|
If it's now a 777-300ER, that means that there is now First Class available on the LAX route.
|Quoting Lufthansa747 (Reply 21):|
TG's new 77W has no Royal First. Only the ex-Jet/Turkish ones do. LAX is planned with factory fresh 777-3D7 ER.

I am glad that at least the economy class product will be up to date.
