Two THAI flights from London found to be Covid-19 hotspots

Recommended Posts

IT shouldn’t be difficult to trace any of these passengers as they should have filled in the T8 form and update their health findings in the AOT app daily.

Trouble is that the very same planes are being continuouslt reused to these Repat' and Return round trips. The same ones.

 

Take a step back...

Each and every airline around the planet, are mothballing all but the very few that we are seeing, doing those flights.

 

High pressure on cleaning staff to try to 'safely' prepare the aircraft during the turnaround time of unloading/reloading...

 

 

two birds can be killed by the one stone

 

Why aren't the airlines smart enough, to cycle through all the individual aircraft in their fleets? - that are now idle?

Keeping them in a time sharing arrangement will keep the entire fleets Maintenance-fresh 

 

It will assist in the financial recovery, for when 'normal' flight resume; as the costs will be lower to Maintain air worthiness, then it will otherwise cost to Restore airworthiness...

 

Having the 'longer' rest between the merry go round of musical chairsnof aircraft; would enable a more thorough cleaning of the aircraft too

 

 

... unless the airlines have a mid term plan to actually 'dump' those aircraft doing the current 'mercy' flights?? - after this is over

 

The airlines are only flying their most fuel efficient planes at the moment, letting the older guzzlers sit idle. 

 

It's going to take years for the airlines and air travel to recover from this and chances are most 747's and A380's will never be returned to service.

Thais don't fill out arrival cards.

Since when?  Last trip out about 6 months ago wife completed the cards, departure card was taken when we left and arrival card half was collected on arrival.  Been this way for many years.  So when did it change or are you perhaps mis-informed.

Actually the point is here that it shows how pathetic the government requirements really are for Thai citizens to obtain a "fit to fly

IMO no problem.

IMO good idea.

If anyone is still being let in they should immediately go into 14 day quarantine.  Period.  No exceptions.  They can use one of the hundreds of empty hotels so the government knows exactly where they are.

Surely immigration knows where these passengers went to from their arivals cards,. Why do they not contact trace them and test them, with repeat testing done to confirm any negative results, along with self quarantine.

They would probably be Thai nationals given the restrictions in place at the moment (no 30 day entry, no tourist visas, and requiring even Thai nationals to be tested before flying home.) That would mean no landing card. (I think they stopped Thais needing a landing card since they put in the automated gates at immigration.

In theory, they should have their Thai addresses as they'd have their passport numbers, and from that their id card details. But if they're living in the UK, it's quite likely they're registered at a relative's address.

This was supposedly why all passengers, both Thai and foreign, were being forced to download and use the app. In theory, then, they already have the names, addresses, seat numbers, and phone and email information for all the passengers on those flights - so why is a plea for people to come forward necessary? And if it IS necessary, why is it coming on the Facebook page of a provincial health office, rather than from the central government?

I remember once back in 2008, when I was on a flight from Colombo to Singapore, the cabin crew, by orders from Singapore, disinfected us all, by spraying disinfectant all over the cabin after we had boarded. Maybe this procedure would be a good idea to introduce on all flights during this virus pandemic.
