I hope this hasn't been posted earlier!
The small regional carrier PBair of Thailand, which opperates a few former Sk F28-4000, are planing to lease a widbody (they are looking at either the MD11, the A340-300 or a B747-300) for their new flight to Skavstad (located ca 1.5 hrs south of Stockholm, Sweeden) that will start later this year.They are doing this because Thai is short of A/c and can't start any new flights. Also Angel Air is starting two new flights to Japan with A300 aircrafts.
I think it's quite starnge that such a small airline are going international longhaul, but i think it's because of the big increase of tourists from Scandinavia to Thailnad/Asia.
Do anybody have more info about what kind of a/c they are choosing, or other kind of info.
Personaly I hope they choose the 743 or MD11.
