Thai Airways to put up 34 Aircraft for Sale
On November 4th, 2020, Thai Airways, the leading airline of Thailand, announced that they would put up 34 of their aircraft up for sale. These aircraft are Thai Airways’ most recognizable aircraft in their fleet.
(Please note that this article is incorrect and shows 32 aircraft)
The 34 aircraft put up for sale include:
10 of their 747-400 which is their entire fleet of Queen.
6 of their 777-200ER which is their entire fleet of 772
Another 6 of their 777-300ER
6 of their A340-600, these have not flown for Thai since 2015.
3 of their A340-500 which have also not flew with Thai since 2012.
2 of their 737-400’s, sad to see their classic 737 go.
And last but not least, their only A300-600.
In my full honest opinion, it is a good move. They only have 11 of their aircraft flying and still 85 of their fleet in storage. Selling aircraft they don’t use will save them from having a chance of bankruptcy. While this is a good move, us avgeeks will be sad to hear that very recognizable Thai Airways aircraft are going to be sold like their Queen of the Skies and their A300.
