Flightglobal’s Ascend Fleets database showed that the Star Alliance member has operated three variants of the A300: the B4-100, B4-200 and -600, out of an order for 33 aircraft. It took delivery of its first A300s – two B4-100 models – in the fourth quarter of 1977. This was followed by the B4-200 variant in May 1981, and the -600 in September 1985.

In response to queries made by Flightglobal, the airline adds that all the A300-600s it has in storage are now waiting to be sold off. Ascend records show Thai now has nine A300-600s in storage.
