Flew back from BKK on STV earlier today, much better seat than the 787. I know they are a bit long in the tooth, but a very pleasant flight.

Well itís pretty much back in service, which suggests STQ isnít gonna depart the fleet soon....the 3 monthís away must have indeed been a D check.

For a A330, 3 months for D check is still a very long time to be grounded as it would take about 4 weeks at most for a A330 D check. In fact earlier days SIA Engineering has taken only 5 weeks to do a 744 D check.

One of the best, but nothing beats Thai's business class rear cabin on Boeing 777-300ER marketed as Premium economy for Copenhagen and Stockholm.
