I need to set up a flight to Thailand in early March 2013. Due to its length in the air I can do an over night somewhere then fly in the next day. Many in my office leave Dulles and fly to Narita, Japan then fly to Thailand from there. What option might be better than this?

The other option might be through Doha via Qatar Airways then to Bangkok. Qatar Airways has flights almost everyday coming in and out of IAD.

Another option via the trans-Pacific route is stopover in Seoul-Incheon airport with Korean Air. The other option via the trans-Atlantic route, aside from Doha, is stopover in Dubai with Emirates.

You should also try Emirates now that they fly into Dulles since they have frequent flights to Bangkok from Dubai. Another option is to fly to Europe first and then find a second flight from there to Bangkok since there are many budget/charter carriers that fly from Europe to Thailand since it is a popular vacation destination.

Thanks for the info. As a federal contractor I'm restricted to the cheapest flight we can get but I might look at some of these options.

Another option is to fly Dulles to Beijing, stay in Beijing, then on to Thailand.

That's a very long flight, lol. I know there's actually a New York to Singapore direct flight, 18 hours! If you're up for it you could do that then take a budget flight to Bangkok for about $100.
