Why don't you use another Star alliance airline, that way you can still use your gold card for the lounges

Thai airways is all about nepotism I think

I saw some guy move into business class after the plane had took off last week

I always book at my local travel agents yes it cost £50 more but don't want all the local shops closing down.They are good people always phone me if there is a problem with a flight.When we had ash cloud problems they re booked me on every flight that was scheduled with Jet i manged to get a favour of a friend at LHR so i sorted that issue.They even called me to let me know one flight was going to be delayed for 2 hours.They give me good personal service,so support your local independent travel agent .

You're not Thai. I flew Thai from Los Angeles twice and check in is always slow because of the Thai semi-elite begging actively for free upgrades. I never noticed that on any other airline or with any other nationality.

I've also flown Eva and liked them. If price is a concern check the Chinese airlines, China Eastern and China Southern. Dirt cheap and not too bad, still far better than the sirley US carriers

Exactly what a friend told me,why upgrade you your not Thai.

I will pay up to £650 still have a week to decide Jet are still my first choice for indirect flight.
But will wait until the poll finishes in a week to make my choice,53% to Thai at the moment Jet have 46%

Yeah i fly with jet airways very nice and polite will recommend them to anyone , stop for about an hour and a half and mumbai airport but worthwhile , can streatch your legs. Thai airways has a lot of catching up to do compared with jet.

You stick with Jet then hopefully the rest of us won't have to be exposed to your poor spelling and punctuation in person.

Do you ever read what you've written ??

You're still gonna get here 3 hours earlier with Thai, unless jet Airways departs earlier.

I've never used Thai to the UK, but looking at their website, it's 11 hours 20 mins LHR to BKK and 13 hours and 5 mins going back

I’ve seen this happen a few times while on Thai Airways (before the plane starts to taxi out). They (Asian) get all settled in and then the rightful owner comes to sit down. They’ll just move to a different seat and hope no one will come and take it from them. The nerve

One woman, three different seats, before she moved back into eco.

I was one of the last to board before and walked to my seat 14 A in Economy , some little French guy was stood in the aisle blocking my way, I pointed to my seat and he got his stuff and moved to row 15, in front was his girlfriend who was stood blocking row 12 and she asked if I minded swapping with her boyfriend so they could be closer. I said Ok as all 3 seats on there were empty also.

Next thing, 2 fat women came to sit in the row where I was, so I told the French guy I'm having my seat back, so he moves to row 12 with his girlfriend, then a guy and his wife came and told the French pair they were their seats,so they walked to the back of the plane where their seats must have been

Cheeky Cnuts, I thought, as I lay sprawled over !2 A,B and C

Haven't used them for International flights for many years, but a friend of mine and his son used them in August to fly LHR-BKK return. On both flights there was no personal tv's.

That would be enough for me not to use them, especially as we travel with young kids.

Just had a quick look on Thai Air web site found this bit of news.

From Jan 16, 2012, A340-600 aircraft will operate the service with individual In-Flight Entertainment on First, Business and Economy Classes.

Last time they used these planes within a month switched back to the old 747s.

I guess your right noticed in Thais small print must be able to spell and punctuate to an acceptable standard.

Went for a walk through the town with Mrs KT today the other travel agents was open.
Walk in asked for flight prices,Jet was £540 Thai £560 so i booked with Thai the other travel agents in the town wanted £620 for Thai so a walk of 100 meters saved me £60 although the flight was £20 more than Jet i think it was a good price for a direct flight.
For anyone looking for a flight from the UK try your local Co-operative travel they won't have a flight with Thai that cheap for long.

Also decide for the new year to change my name to Thaksin Shinawatra should turn a few heads when i check in.

Btw this is for the Mods if you don't log in you can vote as many times as you like on this poll.
Maybe this poll is rigged.
