Recommended Posts

Thai staff MUST work. I remember this airline as one of the better ones in the world. How fast the mighty fall. It may be best to sell the planes and close the chapter and book.

Thai Airways International president Sumeth Damronchaitham has admitted, for the first time, that the national flag carrier is in deep financial crisis, to the extent that it may have to fold unless all staff members unite to work harder

I would take offence at that statement.. it should read: ALL DIRECTORS.

As laudable as this may sound, not one employee from the very top to the very bottom believes a word of it.

 

This a press statement, to satisfy a news cycle, but designed to change nothing.

 

Everyone knows TG is run as a 'hobby' for ex RTAF pilots, HisSo and friends of HiSo.

 

It'll never be allowed to do what happens to normal companies which are in this depth of doggy do do, in other words, become insolvent and fold.

 

This is tragic microcosm of Thai society, which will run and run until we've all long turned to dust 

Outbog interese how many US airlines have filed for chapter 11 bankcruptcy? Maybe many of then would if gone the same way if they did not have that protection.....

 

Are they also run for hi so's etc.....

 

I bet Thai wishes they had that type of protection you can get in the US.

 

Those in glass houses.....

Further, some years back the director responsible for HR told me at a seminar they have no annual or other personal performance review for any staff. He continued 'we don't need to do that because many of our staff have a masters degree'.

 

10 minutes ago, scorecard said:

I asked 'are you saying that a masters degree automatically means guaranteed high performance?'  He looked at me with surprise and said 'yes, of course'.

You've got it in a nutshell.... 

Thai airline is not alone in the "I've got a masters degree" mentality as if it's something credible in the "no-fail" University system!

Solution is obviously to open a 2000sqft lounge at Suvarnabhumi. Absolute genius.

 

Problem solved.

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.

 

What is the source for your claim about "freebies to all and sundry?" Bar stool talk, I think, with no facts to actually back it up. People like to spout it often, but does anyone have any facts to support the claim?

 

The airline's problem is and always has been bad management, with no foreign input to teach those who have absolutely zero experience or knowledge of how to run an airline how to do it. That in turn has resulted in them being slow in purchasing new planes and taking no notice at all of the innovations that more progressive airlines have undertaken. Added to that is their fares are often (not always) noncompetitive, sometimes by a wide margin, and you have a perfect recipe for failure.

It won't collapse its the national carrier. Havnt used Thai for over a decade, overpriced second rate airline imo. 

 

Anyone hear about the latest catastrophic engine failure on takeoff the other day ? 

 

Several flight monitoring blogs, including Air LiveFlyerTalk, and Simply Flying, have reported that a Thai Air Boeing 777-300ER suffered an "uncontained failure" of its left engine while taking off at Suvarnabhumi Airport, also known as Bangkok Airport (BKK). 

The incident occurred on Sunday afternoon on runway 01L at BKK.

This may or may not be true, but...

 

I stopped flying with Thai Airways a long time ago because of over-priced tickets and lousy service.

 

 

Ditto ...

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😂

"Do as I say not as I do! I'm too important to work any harder."
