    Thai A340-600 on its way.

    Airline Thai Airways Intl
    Flight Number 790D
    Departure City (Airport) Osaka, Japan (RJBB)
    Departure Time 08/17/2005 06:24 PM
    Arrival City (Airport) New York, NY (JFK)
    Arrival Time 08/17/2005 02:22 PM
    Remaining Flight Time 01:28

    I can't make the arrival, but does anybody happen to know when it will depart?

    Nice find, Eric!

    It departs (pushes) at 7:50PM.

    Thai Airways Intl
    TG 791 John F Kennedy Int'l (JFK), New York, New York, USA
    Terminal 4 19:50
    Bangkok Int'l (BKK), Bangkok, Thailand
    Terminal 2 23:59+1 day(s)
    Non-stop
    346 17h09min Tuesday

    Tuesday is listed as the 'Operational Day', but it's most likely the same today. The 346 wasn't in town yesterday, was it?

    Can you get it? I don't even know what the actives are...

    With a 7:50pm pushback, good luck getting a decent departure pic. Assuming it pushes on time, and after it sits in the departure queue for god knows how long, it is likely that it won't actually be off the ground until close to 8:45-9:00. Although the sky looks very clear right now, there isn't a whole lot of light left at that hour. But it's certainly worth a try if the right runway is in use! Too bad I'm at work and can't get free before then...

    I think I am going to pass on this unless the departure time changes. Josh like you said pushback is 10 to 8.
