They don't need to simplify anything, all their IOs have their own rules.

I booked a return ticket on Korean Air back in mid Feb. I flew from Bkk on May 1 st to the States. My return flight is scheduled for July 11th. On June 3rd KA notified me that their flight from Dulles to Seoul, and then on to Bkk, was still scheduled. They have tweaked the hours a little, a change they asked me to agree to. No problem on that. KA made no mention of any requirements related to

Covit-19. They are either being very optimistic or they know something we don't.

They are pretty clear now. 😉 
 

If you don’t have a work permit as a foreigner you’re not allowed in. If you do have a work permit as a foreigner then you maybe allowed in, you will need to contact the embassy in your country to get the required documents to allow you entry and into quarantine.

Prayut was hinting just the other day - openly - at a publicly attended junket, he's not confident in, nor backing the allowing of international tourist flight arrivals in the month of June and not confident he'll back July either. 

Not a wise idea to buy tickets unless you pay the extra to cover you for cancelled flights, or can afford to loose the whole fare,  or the hope of a refund or rebooking by the airline should things go south again.

I think Prayut and his mates will wait until they're seeing no figures indicating any second wave of infections in other countries before they'll consider opening the external Thai borders.

qatar app has flights bkk to qatar for next week at least, after qatar dont know, destinations i chose are showing nogo

Qatar is flying regularly to from BKK with connecting flights to many destinations. Just because the airline is flying doesn’t mean that you can.
 

BECAUSE you have to ensure that you can enter your destination country or you will be refused boarding in BKK. in the same way as you will be refused boarding if your destination is BKK if you are not Thai and do not qualify for entry to Thailand (Almost everyone) at the moment.

 

It is not the responsibility of the airline to tell you the documents or conditions you have to meet, that’s your job, but they will check before letting you on the flight as they get fined for flying passengers in who are refused entry by immigration.

Before I can come back to Thailand...... I’d have to leave. No way am I leaving here until I know there are no restrictions or unattainable requirements whatsoever. However long that takes...so be it.

Economy class is fully booked, Glasgow-Dubai-Bangkok from July 2 til 17.

 

Called Emirates today. They have no restrictions.

 

They have no idea about Thai Immigration though.

I have a hard time believing that Emirates won't have any restrictions onboard.

The Thai government might need to clarify the rules, but simplify them won't happen. Why would they?

They most certainly do have restrictions, no cocktails!

 

"In First Class and Business Class, you can enjoy champagne and a simpler choice of wines and mixed drinks. However, we’re not serving cocktails at the moment."

When you check in, the airline will look for restrictions then.

they will have a list of the up to date criteria.

if you dont meet the criteria you will not be able to check in.

they were doing this in Malaga airport when I flew back here 18th March.

the lady asked me to wait while she checked the system to see if i was eligible to enter the country of destination.
