I didn't quite take it as him thinking Loki was beyond saving (after all, he tried reasoning with him yet AGAIN at Stark Tower)... I do think he was realizing he was going to have to step it up a notch, though.

In my opinion, I think he knew Thor would survive (even if he hadn't broken out) and he was just wanting to get Thor out of the way while he finished his escape. His quip was just his dig to let Thor know that he was going to drop him.
If that makes sense... but that could just be me
