Drink Coffee on board a A330

The best place for a cup of coffee is on board a A330 and you will find “331 Station Coffee War” cafe in Sattahip and it is 30km from Pattaya. The Airbus A330 has been converted into a coffee cafe. The current owners paid 10 million Thai Baht. A cup of coffee is great value and only costs 60 Baht ($2.00).

In order to ensure the health and safety of customers during Covid-19, the cafe reportedly conducts temperature checks, requires the wearing of masks, and regularly disinfects surfaces. Only 60 customers are permitted “on board” at any one time, for a maximum of 40 minutes.

The A330 was withdrawn from use in March of 2015 and then stored at U-Tapao Airport. The Airbus A330-300 once flew with Thai Airways, registered as HS-TEA.

You never mentioned this place before and going to bring the kids there to run amuck on board, whilst I enjoy my Latte.

I saw a pic of a 747 on some ground in Pattaya, no idea what it's going to be repurposed as though. I do Like the idea of having a coffee on board that Airbus!.

Off-Topic I realise, but anyone know whatever happened to the two Dakotas that used to be on display on Highway 7?

Do you mean Highway 36 ? There's this one at the Caltex station

There is also the 747 being set up in the vacant lot on Beach Rd. Called "Runway 88". The "Runway of International Street Food".

And of course the 2 aircraft set up at Terminal 21. (One is a 737 or A320. No idea what the other one is.)

That certain looks like a Dakota, but these were a pair on the Northbound (towards BKK Airport) side of Highway 7. That could well be one of them, after relocation. 

Thanks for posting. I was surprised that such a relatively important piece of Aviation history wasn't in someone's collection. It was the workhorse of many allied Air Forces, during WWII, and went on to have a career as an airliner afterwards, Apparently, there are still 300 flying today. I presumed some collector bought it.
