Thai Airways Confirms Cancellation of New York-Bangkok Service

A month ago I reported that Thai Airways would discontinue its New York-JFK – Bangkok non-stop flight. That Airways has only just made the announcement.

They’ll work to get affected passengers out to Los Angeles for their LA-Bangkok service (5 days a week) or issue refunds.

Update: Joe Brancatelli writes in:

Just a quick correx on your blog post concerning Thai’s dumping of the JFK-BKK route. In fairness to Thai (no easy task, I admit), the airline DID officially announce it on 13 June. The news was buried in a handout about higher fuel surcharges, but it was there…. As for when they actually decided to dump the route (this time, I mean), they started zeroing out the flights in early May.The real trick will be to see what Thai is gonna do with those A345s. They are pulling the planes off the LAX route in the fall, too. These plans are basically disasters financially.
