Reply To: Alex on… Can Thai and MAS fully utilise their A380s?

Back to Forum


Alex, you rightly point to regional options in the UK with the Gulf carriers. Prior to the demise of bmi (when Thai woiuld have placed their A380 order), there would have been Star alliance code-share possibilities to LHR and onwards with Thai. Unliess they tie in something with Virgin, Thai no longer have those connections to hand.

In theory, MAS should be able to lever onworld connections from the UK regions (and near-Europe) with BA but there does not appear to be much movement on that front.
