TG president warns airline on brink of collapse, staff must work harder

Recommended Posts

The staff is responsible for saving the airline, then? I do not disagree with asking the staff to pick up some slack here and there but, how about cutting down, or dare I say, eliminate - the corruption and nepotism that has festering at the top? Yes, you and your lot, and whoever has their fat stubby fingers, hands and arms in the trough.

 

Smooth as silk? Creased like cheap overnight linen, more like.

Perhaps some training in customer service, like Thai once had could help

Surely the Board of Management needs to take responsibility for financial situation, which began a long time ago to leak money?

I thought I read last year that Thailand was to become a "centre of excellence" for aviation, and was going to be servicing planes and doing the safety checks and maintenance for all airlines??

Interesting proposition when their own planes need replacing and upgrades?

They could start by not giving freebies to all and sundry in the ruling class. This has not come up in any discussion of how to save the airline by the director or politicians.

This. First Class on Thai has always been full of stiff-haired old dinosaurs flying free to shopping destinations around the world. And certain people ordering Thai food takeouts from London. Great business model. *golf clap*

wait, let me get this right. Staff must work harder to avoid airline collapsing? Not the management should work harder? not the management should take pay cuts, but the staff should work harder😂

This is how it is done in Thailand, staff are to blame.

I think it's unanimous on thought that it isn't the workers but it is the top heavy blood suckers that need to leave. If they have any love for the airline and their country they would bow out and let it live. I actually think that the staff are great and work very hard.

Yes I've said the same on another thread.

 

Their margin aspirations are far too high. I fly a mix of Thai and Emirates, I prefer Thai as it's direct and their ground services are better even though Emirates on board services beats them hands down. Thai are generally £800-1000 more expensive than Emirates in F and on occasions I'm the only passenger in the cabin. No wonder!!


They need outside help. The Saudi's realised this and got Tim Clark to turn the airline around but typical loss of face means they would rather go under than ask for outside expert help.

 

 

 

Thai know best what Thai need, so get used to it.

This thread is about the financial health of Thai Airways, not global warming and environmental issues.

Every other Asian Flag Carrier has drastically changed its operating standards in order to bring it “SEAT MILE PER COST” down to be competitive.

Thai employees seem to think they are immune to competition and holding steady traditional standards.   When their Golden Goose quits laying eggs, they will be scrambling for any job they can get.

look at the history of what happened to the NOK pilots that left in mass several years ago and went to New Gen.  took about two years before the brought New Gen to near collapse.

It quite clearly is the company as a whole. Years of mismanagment have allowed it to get to this stage. No CEO can change it. Its like a giant mafia organization with whole families employed there. They all look out for each other and will prevent any change. Esswntially it should be allowed to go bankrupt.

I'm surprised their best friends, the PRC Chinese are not helping them.

It was less than 2 months ago this same man said the airline was not in trouble amid speculation of major problems and now they are hemoraging 36billion a year, the staff have very little to do with that and even if they worked 24 hours a day for zero wages it would not help the bottom line that much, the management of this company is negligent and complicit in this debacle and should all be sacked and replaced with competant persons.

Preferably with someone with overseas airline experience as another retired Thai Air force General would be the death nell.

If they collapse, will they refund the sold tickets?

Just make sure that you have insurance, as you will get nothing from Thai Air in the event.
