    Air France to retreat from Bangkok:(

    From summer 2012 Air France will more than halve the number of flights it operates to the Thai capital. At the same time it will cut the number of business class seats it places on the market from 35 a day to 42 a week.

    Right now the French flag-carrier operates a daily B777 between Paris CDG and Bangkok but starting on March 25 next year the number of flights will be cut to just three a week.

    In effect Air France will downgrade Bangkok from a business to a holiday destination.
    The carrier has become, perhaps, the first European airline to operate a leisure-configured plane on a scheduled route to a major Asian city.
