About a month ago I posted about Thai’s announcement that they’d be commencing A380 service to London Heathrow as of December 1, 2013. Well, via Business Traveller is appears as if this service has been delayed by about 11 months, and they now plan on putting the A380 on the London Heathrow route as of October 30, 2014.
They claim this is due to “important technical modifications.” I don’t know what that actually means, though this is an odd delay given that they’ve been actively taking delivery of A380s up until now.
As I’ve always said about Thai, I don’t think there’s an airline that changes their schedule more often than them, so I’m really not surprised. Heck, I wouldn’t rely on the October 30 launch date either, it could very well be substantially earlier or later.
Just a heads up to anyone that was eying an award seat on the route…
