It was the oranges, having to peel and juice them for you.

Well the people will suffer, the culture will not.

 

If the people suffer enough, and grow up as a result, the culture will also change.

     Dude's statement is a great example of why the airline is doing so poorly.  Staff needs to work harder--that's the solution.  What rot.   Bankruptcy might be the best thing--clear out all the dead wood and brain-dead thinkers like this dude and start all over.  But, likely the government will do a bailout so the country does not lose face and it will keep limping along losing money year after year.

I made a similar statement in another thread about them getting in an executive with a proven track record like Tim Clark. Unfortunately they rather burn to the ground financially than do that.

Tim Clark couldn't save this airline.

 

You could be the best manager in the World but you can't change Thai culture.

That probably wouldn't even pay for their golf for the month mate.

Interesting you should say that.

Malaysian Airlines are having similar economic problems to Thai Airways and only yesterday it was news they had shortlisted 4 potential partners for a strategic partnership with MAS. 

Perhaps Thai should look at doing the same but I suspect there are too many corrupt and unproductive skeletons in the Thai Airways cupboard for any potential partner to be interested. Or there even could be a serious risk for Thai Airways to have them exposed.

Better perhaps for their sake to let them die a silent death.

I took thai airways for the first time Brussels - phuket (in more then 10  year thailand) I was surprised  airplane full,  2 big airplanes bkk-hkt within 1 hour (??)  80 % full.  They fly faster, but I didn't feel better service then another company, food was soso staff not very friendly maybe too many and hierarchic structure, and transit in bkk was a disaster, nobody to guide you ,  while I was waiting I saw constantly lost people try to find their way. . Company need new modern management.

Sorry, I simply don't believe that.  You had three vodka oranges and were perfectly behaved and they refused to serve you more. Totally unbelievable.  Definitely more to that story if it is true.

I fly Thai quite often, business and economy and have never come across anything like that - in fact they are very generous with the booze, even serving me a final drink - with a smile - when on final descent on my last flight (business to Jakarta).

I fly through Israel for work, ELAL 21,000Baht, Thai air do a codeshare TG 41,000Baht,  almost double the price on a codeshare.

 

The problem with Thaiair is the same with any Thai government enterprise, the board is loaded down with assorted generals, admirals and flunkeys. The required business smarts are not there and they probably bought their rank as well.  There are some very successful Thai companies in the private sector, so the talent may well be available locally, but not in the ranks of the military.

 

Cheers
