Thai have announced on one of their press releases that the MD-11s will be out of service by September 2001.
Thai utilizes the A330-300 version on BKK - KHI - MCT route. Although CX has taken a lot of business from Thai on this particular route. Both airlines are still doing fine on the same route. CX and TG does not fly on the same day , with TG507 on TUE , THU , SAT , SUN and CX701 on MON , WED , FRI. You can also say that the 2 airlines focus on different market segment. Most of TG pax on TG507 are those from other asian countries using BKK as a transit point, while CX on the otherhand offers a very reasonable fare on that routing, for pasengers in Bangkok travelling to Pakistan.
