Nearly 6,000 THAI staff to be laid off

I read somewhere that Airbus have already asked for it's planes back

The majority of those are the 20 A320's operated by Thai Smile, and a couple of B787's operated by TG.

 

There is a myth that the A380's are leased, they were purchased.

 

On the A320 thing, it's interesting that nobody mentions Thai Smile. I'm assuming that as a fully owned subsidiary it's part of the bankruptcy, but if someone knows the real situation I'd be interested

Sadly this was coming even before the Virus,  The Board CEO. government leaders ran this airline to the ground then stomp on it again and again!  Time to action it off to a private investor once out they will again run it to the ground unless something major changes!  Talking about Government can't run anything!

The most expensive airline to travel with and for what??? Price, hospitality, service, food, drinks, comfort, I don't think so.

I imagine that like a lot of airline flight staff the suitcases are for all the "presents" for the family ??

Will somebody please tell me who the International Receiver & Accountancy firm is ?

You cannot put yourself into receivership or bankruptcy & than administer it yourself ?

That is ridiculous, as obviously they have no idea how to run an airline

Basically because of the stuff they are asked to move around as Staff baggage with minimal checks.

Designer bags.etc.

Even Thai orchids have been carried on the flights all over the place.

More reliable than Thai Postal service.

I don't think the international creditors will be very happy

Does this affect my on hold booking?

Could compromise safety surely if they`ve got nobody to keep the planes in the air. a third of the total staff is a hell of a lot of people.
