Yeah, got the flight change yesterday. Messed-up my long layover in BKK. Now, I have a 2 hour layover, instead of 4... I wanted to enjoy some pampering in the RFC lounge! Hopefully my flight arrives early!

Hope they get their NRT flights figured out soon. I'm booked on 640 in Nov and a buddy is on 642. Originally my flight was supposed to be a 380, now it is supposedly a 787 according to my reservation. 642 is still showing as a 346. Crossing my fingers there aren't anymore changes or cancellations!

Yes, same for us on a upcoming flight SYD-BKK-TYO... The A330 had better be the newer cabin... Or, else!

Cheers,

Oh man, can we switch? My layover in BKK goes from +2 hrs (cutting it close, with terminal change and bathroom breaks and all) to -3 hrs... I need flight to leave after 1100 AM that day, not before...

My flight on 7/16, was prevously a 777, now 773:

OLD: Bangkok Singapore
TG413 BKK1115 1430SIN 330

NEW: Bangkok Singapore
TG403 BKK0800 1150SIN 773

Spent pre-devaluation US Air DMs on pair of J class tix; since it is post-merger and post-Oneworld switchover, no can do on changing flights with TG unless I want to re-jigger my entire itinerary (US Airways DM desk just spent 30 mins on hold with their Int'l desk to confirm that)...

Dang you Thai Airways!!!

If the change has caused a misconnect Thai will fix it for you and then you just need USDM to revalidate the ticket which they can without starting from scratch. You just need to contact Thai and let them know of this and the need to change to a flight to meet your incoming connection. They should be able to put the sector in to your booking before calling USDM back.

Also on a 1.5hr sector I wouldn't worry about the aircraft type.
