Hello,

 

It happens to me last March when I like to go back from Hong Kong to Thailand.

Unfortunately my flight was cancelled by Thaiairways because the covid-19.

Only Thai people where allowed to take the airplaine.

However I found another way to get back via Malaysia.

The next day I claimed my ticket at Thai, and after a couple of days they answering me, they will give me the money back bud because  of the crowds it will take 3 months.

 

Who outlines my surprise, yesterday I got an email from them that they are bank rupt and for that reason I have to say goodbye to my money.

But as far as I understand Thaiairways in not bankrupt? Or I'm wrong.

 

My question is, are there more people who get this email?

I got the same email. Thai Airways don't owe me any cash, and I have no flights booked with them.

 

I do have enough air miles for a return business class ticket to the UK though.

THAI is bankrupt, that's what this letter states. As a ticket holder you would likely fall into the unsecured creditor pool of creditors. Your money may not be lost, but unlikely to get back 100% and the timing will be long - probably over a year. 

I don't know if they are offering the option, but you may be better off taking a credit for a future flight when they start flying.

Would you not be able to use your Thai Airways Royal Orchid air miles on one of the other partner airlines of the Star Alliance?

OK so that's what it was. I didn't recognise the email address and I wasn't about to open any attachments, I reported it as spam and deleted.

 

I've no flights booked, but I do have a swag of air miles.

Hopefully. However Thai will have to reimburse their partner airline and might not be in a position to do so...

 

Let's see how it pans out when flights and re-entry into Thailand are as bit more settled.

Miles are a form of currency, and have value, or at least they did. Hence you are a creditor.

 

TG ROP miles are probably useless.

 

Maybe you'll be able redeem an award flight on TG, but I wouldn't count on any *A awards.

 

ROP transitions to RIP.

The email that you showed (the re-organisation petition) does not state that "THAI is bankrupt", neither does it say that you "have to say goodbye to your money".

 

You are right, though, when you say that THAI is not (technically) bankrupt yet, that notice issued by the court is just advising creditors that if they have any objections to the proposed action they can register that objection.

Why would you hope for that?  Do you rent out those "future landing spots" [sic]? 

 

What is a "rented landing spot"?
