A relatively quiet week as far as new route announcements from Star Alliance member carriers.   The most updates come from THAI who updated their Winter 2013/14 timetable primarily with increases on routes flown by their SMILE subsidiary.    The week saw most Star Alliance carriers report timeframes for the re-introduction of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner on their routes.  Most carriers will begin flying the 787 in next month or so.   United has already put theirs into circulation on US domestic routes on May 20.
