Thai Airways Decides Against Using Narrowbodies to HYD

Thai Airways had planned to downgauge and increase frequency to Hyderabad – from 16 September, Thai was expecting to have its subsidary THAI Smile operate A320s daily on the Hyderabad-Bangkok sector instead of the current four-weekly A330.

However, this plan has been scrapped according to TTR Weekly. Due to insufficient cargo space on the smaller A320, Thai has decided to revert to the four-weekly A330 schedule.

A330s can carry over 10 tons of cargo each flight to/from Hyderabad, while the A320 would only be able to carry 3 tons or so.
