HS TWA

Does anyone know what has happened to this aircraft and when it will be back? It is off the BKK AKL route and being substituted by a 777 200. I am flying in a few days and really do not fancy another session with the horrid angle flat beds on a 12 hour flight.

TWA hasnt flown since 15 Aug when we flew AKL-BKK. Just arrived back in AKL on a 772, but happy to have received an OPUP from Y to J. Even angle flat J is better than Y !

With a fleet of only 2 aircraft, and some additional maintenance checks due the RR engine issues, anything can cause quite a disruption.

However, I think TWA was supposed to have flown yesterday, but remained unserviceable. Chatting with the FSM, he told me he was called into duty at very short notice at 4pm (for 6:45pm departure) leaving him and his team very little time to get to work and prep the cabin. Crew did a great job (at least in J).

I am flying again AKL-BKK (in J) and the end of the month and will be watching closely TWA/B movements.

Thanks but as per my post I was looking for some more specific info re what is going on with the aircraft, i.e. is it on regular maintainence, is there a bigger issue and when it will be back on the route. TG491 for tonight is now showing 772.

Well, i tried with my comment that the 772 crew were called in at short notice.

Unless a THAI insider is prepared to comment, it is unlikely we will ever know...
