Thai Airways will be reducing capacity to Dubai from Dec 1st 2009 onwards from a daily A 333 to a daily A 346. This means a reduction of 32 seats per day on the DXB BKK DXB route. FYI, TG's 2 class A 333s seat 299 pax in a 2 class configuration (J and Y) where as TG 's 3 class A 346s seat 267 pax. However, their in flight product on this route will get a big face lift as their A 346 fleet has a first class cabin (which their A 333s dont) in addition to TG's new Y and J class cabin product.
TG too confirmed that it will be increasing its flights to Singapore from Dec 15th 2009 with the addition of a 4th daily nonstop flight. TG will be using an A 333 for this additional daily flight where as its other 3 daily flights are operated by a mixture of A 333s and B 772As.
Thai Airways has officially confirmed that it will be reducing frequencies to BOM-Mumbai from December 2009. Currently, operations were listed as being 13 weekly using B 744s for all flights, however these will be reduced to 11 weekly services using an A 333 four times per week + a B 772A on a daily basis.
