Thai Airways has disclosed that since it is unable to find any suitable buyers for its fleet of 4 Airbus A 340-500s that were put up for sale over 3 months ago, it will be returning these aircraft back to service LAX-Los Angeles nonstop. The route is currently flying BKK-KIX-LAX using a B 772ER, however from March 29th onwards, it will be flown 4 times a week nonstop using an A 345.
The flight timings are as follows:
TG 794 Dep BKK 1920 Arr LAX 2125
TG 795 Dep LAX 2310 Arr BKK 0640+2
TG too confirmed that it will be reducing weekly flights flown to Shanghai (PVG) and Beijing (PEK) for the IATA summer season by flying 11 times a week to PVG instead of double daily (4 weekly A 333 + daily B 744) and 10 times a week to PEK instead of double daily.
