Thai Airways is preparing to shift its 2/3’s of its Bangkok to Tokyo services to us Airbus A380’s a good month and a bit earlier, with a new start date of 27th October 2013 (instead of 1st December).
The new time-table looks like this:
Bangkok Suvarnabhumi - Tokyo Narita TG676 DEPART BKK 08:00 ARRIVE NRT 15:50 A380 TG640 DEPART BKK 22:35 ARRIVE NRT 06:15+1 A380 TG642 DEPART BKK 23:55 ARRIVE NRT 07:35+1 A346 Tokyo Narita - Bangkok Suvarnabhumi TG641 DEPART NRT 10:45 ARRIVE BKK 15:45 A380 TG643 DEPART NRT 11:45 ARRIVE BKK 16:45 A346 TG677 DEPART NRT 17:30 ARRIVE BKK 22:30 A380 Commences 27th October 2013. Equipment booked as above Notes: A380 = Airbus A380 A346 = Airbus A340-600
Flight 667/666 is currently operated by an A380.
The two A380s replace an existing Airbus A340-600 and a Boeing 777-300ER that currently serve the route.
For those who want to experience a Thai Airways A380 on a semi frequent route, this could be a good route to try out. In addition, this will be one hell of a capacity boost in all travel classes.
