THAI “sucks”, says Thaksin

BANGKOK (AFP): Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra today slammed Thailand’s national airline, Thai Airways International (THAI), for its high ticket prices, uncomfortable seats and poor service. In an interview today, he said, “If I were not a public figure, I wouldn’t fly with THAI. It sucks. “Business class on other airlines is better than THAI’s first class. Our fares are also higher. If THAI flights are not available and I must take another airline, I am very happy,” he said. Commenting on THAI’s competitiveness, Thaksin said, “Its income depends mainly on economy class which can compete because it is no different from the same service on other airlines.”
