Thai Airways’ A330 is a common plane in Most Major Thailand Airports. As these A330s are serving many regional routes from Dubai until Denpasar. It’s like explaining why Singapore Airlines A330 is a common plane in Changi 😊
I believe one of the planes on the tarmac with Azur Air is a Thai Lion Air 737-800
Yes, I found it a little weird Thai was using the A330-300 on a 1.5 hour flight. The plane was full, and they still have 4 or so flights on this route a day! Thanks for helping me identify the livery, I’ll edit my post.
Nice photos! If you get the chance, if suggest going to the beach at the end of the runway (not sure of the name). It’s basically Saint Maarten in Asia! Unfortunately I didn’t take the opportunity when I was in Phuket but you should definetly go. Read some articles about planespotting there, I think the police are wary of plane spotters but I’m not sure.
Yeah, I wanted to go down there! I was a bit unsure if there was a beach behind the fence and I didn’t want to be late for my flight. Plus planes were arriving the other direction and departing towards the beach that day. It looks so awesome.
It’s very interesting they have a lifeguard service down there. I never saw anyone down there. And wow Thai operated the 747 from BKK to HKT! And the 777?
