Thumbs up Thai on the boil

Thai Airways International received government approval to spend $1.4 billion on aircraft. The carrier will purchase three A340-500s and five A340-600s to be delivered between 2004 and 2006, along with seven five-year-old 747s from United Airlines, Reuters reported.

They got government approval to buy the A340s. Airbus "prices" them at 1.4bn. However, government has only approved spending of 1.04bn. Thus we see how much the discount was.

I think this was on the orders yahoogroup.

Are they looking at bringing more pax into Thailand generally, or hoping to take advantage of getting more transfer pax through the new facilities at Suvarnabhumi - if it is actually open by the time these new routes start? (website still says "due to open in 2005)

Either way, I'm sure MAN to BKK will work well.
