In case you missed it, Thai Airways has just taken delivery of their brand new A350.
They seem to be VERY excited about it as well blowing up social media!
Checking Flight Radar, seems the brand new aircraft, HS-THB, made the delivery flight today!
This is the first of the 12 advanced jets, which features 32 of the airline’s latest Royal Silk business class seats. These seats are identical to the ones we flew on Iberia airlines A330, click here for that trip report.
Want to fly on it? They will soon start an initial period of flying regional services between Bangkok and Chiang Mai, then, the aircraft will be deployed on long haul flights soon thereafter, starting with the Bangkok-Melbourne route.
You can see all the fun on their Facebook page here.
Things haven’t been great at Thai over the past few years, pulling service from the U.S., downsizing and re-organizing. Hopefully, this delivery and more to come will help lift the spirits and bring service back to the U.S.! Fingers crossed that the rumors of the return service to SEA/SFO/LAX are true, click here.
I’m looking forward to booking a seat soon!
