Does anyone have an idea why this A346 came from Osaka instead of Bangkok, and why it has the weird arrival/departure times (i.e., not the times for flight 790/791)?

well here it is, came in just before 5:30, the weather cleared just enough to get some sunlight.

Senga, you're in luck, our good friend Monty's been on top of things...

LongreachAU: cos the 345 went technical and it had to stop in KIX to get juice

So seems as if the passengers were stranded in Osaka and A345 #2 wasn't available...not complaining!

it went technical in BKK so the 346 was assigned...the 346 can't do BKK-JFK-BKK without a stop and KIX is that stop, they use KIX because it's already a TG port of call enroute to the USA, think LAX-BKK stops in Osaka on certain days of the week. just a fuel stop, not pax were offloaded or added.

also, the TG flight from BKK-JFK on 19 june which was diverted to Anchroage was due to medical emergencey with the passenger later passing away.

Whoops, guess I was a little off target. :)

Thanks for clearing it up, Mont.

The TG A340-600 was back at JFK today, I assume another tech. issue.

yes gone technical again...they have only 2 x 345 so if one goes tech they need the 346 to substitue, i assume it was via KIX? on a Thai note, we've had this come down for the past few weeks.
