THAI to auction off 34 aging aircraft




Financially-strapped Thai Airways International is to auction off 34 aircraft, with an average age of about 20 years, to anyone who is interested.


The aircraft include the Airbus A340-500 and A340-600, which were bought during the tenure of former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra for service on the non-stop route between Thailand and the United States, which proved to be a financial flop, resulting in about seven billion baht in operational losses.


There are also two Boeing B737-400 aircraft, built in 1992-1993, three Airbus A340-500 planes, built in 2005-2007, six Airbus A340-600, built in 2005-2008, ten Boeing B747-400s, built in 1993-2003, six Boeing B777-200, built in 1996-1998 and six Boeing B777-300, built in 1998-2000.

Good luck, nobody else wants them either.

Old A340s and B747s are history. Scrap value only.

Possibly a few of the rest can be converted to freighters.



Wait a minute, they can he used to make more Handbags, some dresses from the curtains and of course a nice theater can buy the seats for inside the viewing room.....
