    One time Thai Airways and never again. Other Airlines provide much better service and convenience on lower rates.

    So for me, Thai Airways can shut down all business for ever.

    Thank you.

      They are obviously not owing you flights or money.
      Your comparison with Maxwell has some truth in it.
      He was a well known conman and thief.
      who owns 49 percent of tg and until a few weeks ago 51?

    This is an international scandal that they are allowed to fly at all. They owe millions in fare refunds, and debts to others.

          Robert Maxwell MC was a British media proprietor, Labour Member of Parliament, suspected spy, and fraudster. Originally from Czechoslovakia, Maxwell rose from poverty to build an extensive publishing empire. Died in a a suspicious fashion in 1991

        Slugger O’Toole, tool by name. Idiot.
        Another pathetic piece of failure, that masquerades as an expat.
        Disowned by family and friends years ago.
        Don’t compare Thailand with the UK. This is 2021, not decades ago.
        Thai airways is a bankrupt, busted flush and a disgrace.
        You should spend more time lobbying to get a vaccine into your arm before 2029.
        Your a farang in Thailand and that means the soi dogs are in front of you for a jab in the arm.

        No not we are not living with it. You are excusing an airline that owes millions and is still flying.
        You principles are the principles of a Thai lizard. You might even be a Thai, you scum bag.

      … and the point in not allowing them to fly, and possibly make some money to pay off those bills, would be what, exactly?

      … particularly bearing in mind that the demand for secondhand aircraft isn’t exactly booming at the moment …

        You are quite correct,remember trying to get a refund or credit on a ticket to Brunei I did not use many years ago.
        travel agent,”go see main Thai office in downtown bkk sir”
        Main Thai office in Bangkok ” must go Thai office at airport sir”
        Thai office at airport “must go see travel agent sir”
        end result dissatisfied now ex customer still telling story 20 years later.not smart.

        How do you think the share holders, management and staff of efficiently run private sector rival aviation companies would view this?
        How do you think tax payers in thailand would view even more of their money going south on this white elephant.?
        How do you think the 1000’s of people they are owing money and flights to view this?
        They are essentially being rewarded for failure.
        The whole fiasco brings shame on the whole of thailand worldwide.
        It’s hardly a good advert to potential investors in the country about thai buissness ethics is it especially when you look at who until a few weeks ago owned 51 percent of the company and now own 49.
        Why not apply you do not have to pay any of your bills to all buissness’s of any type,that would work well.

      Some might, chupapi, and it actually makes a great deal of sense.

      Thais returning to Thailand from abroad and Thais living abroad visiting Thailand only get free State Quarantine (SQ) if they fly with Thai Airways.

      If they fly with anyone else they have to pay for ASQ or ALSQ, just like farangs.

      Some will be happy to pay for a better hotel of their choice, but the vast majority will be happier to save at least 30,000 baht on their hotel bill making Thai Airways the airline of choice for many at the moment.

    Thaiairways never pays back for canceled tickets. Never ever that they will make the right decision. They will bore travel agencies, customers until they do not do the right thing for themselves and their customers, as the rest of LOS has always done for decades. Facts !!!

      For those calling for the airline to be stopped from flying – what would that achieve?

      The planes could be sold off, but is this really a good time to sell second hand aircraft?

      If the problem is “bad management and corruption” and what’s wanted is for it to make enough money to pay off its bills and refund its customers, how does stopping it flying do that?

      Wouldn’t stopping it flying make it impossible for them to make any money, and mean that they’re running at an even bigger loss so could never refund their customers?

      If the aim is to put a lot of people out of a job, preferably Thais, great solution. If it’s so that they can pay their bills, rather less so.

    Pre Covid I flew numerous times between BKK and Australia. Fares were always cheaper than other full service airlines and I can’t recall a late arrival. Extremely bad management and corruption brought about it’s current situation. Please don’t enlighten me with your tales of bad service, I can say the same about some flights I have been on with EK, BA, SQ etc.

    Ten months waiting for a travel voucher or refund and nothing at all…
    Just copy and paste return emails. I hope they fold completely… no one should ever fly with them. If you do you are risking your money… they can just cancel and you will loose it all.
    There are far better options than Thai Airways.

    Wow this comment section is full of Hate. Don’t you people have nothing else to do ? Like look at the shit that’s going on in your ownn home country like Britain after Brexit. I fly Thai since 1975 and never ever had to complain. The bankrupcy is one issue but not unique to Thailand. Most western airlines are in fact bankrupt, too but held alive with government help, like Lufthansa. I do also have a ticket on which i was planning to fly to europe in may 2020 but the Pandemic and the Bankrupcy killed that trip. I was offered an extension of my ticket all the way to Dec.2021. So what ? We’re living in a changing world , so get used to it.
