    I would fly if I could pay at the entrance to the aircraft, like on a bus.
    Otherwise, paying in advance to this airline is stupid.
    Thai Airways owes B24 billion in ticket refunds.
    How about Thai Airways contacting these passengers that had their tickets cancelled. Some might still be in Thailand.
    Thai Airway could offer them a free flight to compensate them for their cancelled flight.
    Is that likely?
    Not from this gang of scammers.
    This is like the man that owes you a tenner, who says: I know I owe you a tenner. Lend me another tenner and that will round it up to twenty.

      agrees to one hundred percent, was himself blown by this rice cooker and did not see a glimpse of a penny. Last time I choose this crap, scam company and intend to choose the coolest European if I were to go to the scam country. These thieves will never replace customers with refunds or free tickets, typically Thai business.

    Anyone with a forward paid for reservation may want to look at Thais website and register their interest as a Thai creditor but I suspect your chances of getting a refund are close to zero.
    people who have paid by credit card may have some hope of compensation form your card issuer.

    Also might not be to wise to land anyplace they are owing money.
    Would not be first time for a fuel bowser to be parked behind the AC.
    Look what happened to the current head of Los’s jet in germany in the past.

No, your friends can’t come over. No parties. No drinking with friends. No large gatherings. As part of Phuket’s efforts to stop the spread of Covid-19, local authorities have tightened restrictions and say friends are not allowed to gather at private homes.

“No parties of any kind allowed… No house party, no friends gathering in the residence.”

Along with temporary closures of some businesses and venues, the order says, parties involving alcohol are banned and gatherings of more than 30 people are banned. The only gatherings allowed are religious ceremonies like weddings and funerals.

Foreigners who violate any of Phuket’s disease control measures could be deported and lose their permission to stay in Thailand. On Sunday, 2 British men in Phuket were each fined 6,000 baht for having a “party.” Only 6 people were gathered at the home. Police from the Cherng Talay station came by the home after a call from a neighbour.
