Thai Aiways cancels its September flights


Recommended Posts

The titles says it all

 

Although it was to be expected (Visa amnesty until 26 of September) Thai Airways has cancelled its flight for that month.

 

I was notified this afternoon: has anyone received the same kind of news for a later (month) flight ?

 

Still waiting for the right timing to go to Europe for a few weeks and back here without having to go through all these drastic measures. Not holding my breath though 🙂

I was planning flight to Europe too ,but did not risked it...., so now I would call myself lucky if next year June all is a bit normal again , but I really doubt about it , think more my flight in 2022 by-by Thailand back to live home country shall be my earliest next one !

 

Only lucky to have no problem staying legally Thailand , so no worry's about that

My flight to for 22 September cancelled rebooked October again if that cancelled i book November and so on... i was talking to Thai Airways it not about bankruptcy it about Thai Government wont let any one in and the Airlines need time to prepare for scheduled flights..  Thai is under protected bankruptcy.. i would not expect the Thai Government would let the main source of its holidaymakers fail and it would also be a big loss of face..

Thai Airways is bankrupt. All their flights (except those organised by Thai government) have been cancelled until October at the earliest, and even that might not happen.

 

Haven't you seen any news at all?

nope 

That is quite surprising as you seem to have known that for a while whereas I have just been told by the company for my 24 September flight

 

Can you  link me the source as, even their staff, do not know

I have booked for June next year as it will avoid me being worried about cancellations every month 🙂 This way if there is an opening earlier on I will try to get on the train (plane)

Thai Airways keeps bombarding me with messages about their bankruptcy proceedings. Not sure if only those they owe money to get the news, or their ROP members, or shareholders... but sometimes they'd send me 1000+ page court filing documents with translations... And no stop sending me <deleted>... erm, I mean unsubscribe option!

I have got one (long) mail with the full list of proceedings when they went bankrupt 

since then only twice to update ´y cancelled flights 

But not once an official mail about them not resuming before October ( which seems, although uncertain, to be the case

Can I butt in and ask a question which will be of interest to this topic?

Does anyone think that the soldiers government will ever abolish this insurance farce for $100.000 for cover for Coronavirus, even when things get back to near enough normal?

Well I unscribe that messages recently, it is possible.

No Thai for me anymore.

Repatriation flights are going, regular service is not.

Because Thai is in Bankruptcy and is trying to make a plan for creditors to accept the last thing it needs to do is fly a big jet half full at best to another country pay all the fees to that country and then fly back empty.

 

The only way Thai or any airline is going to fly is if it can get either enough people on the plane to pay all the bills both ways or enough cargo to offset the costs and pay in lieu of passengers.

 

As to relaxing the rules forget it.  The Thai people will revolt if there is another 14 day shutdown because of tourists that come into the country and infect people.  Even if there are no  deaths.

Thai Airways however still has repatriation flights to Europe.

 

I cannot link to the source, but you can try to Google this article from August 2nd: "Thai Airways arranges repatriation flights to EU and Taiwan".

As part of phase 6 of the easing of the lockdown they are already relaxing the criteria, with group quarantine. The insurance will soon be a thing of the past.

 

"The entry is granted to foreign business representatives, specialists, diplomats, migrant workers, exhibitors, film crews, medical tourists and Thailand Elite card members. One requirement is that they are required to stay in "organisational quarantine" facilities and such facilities must meet disease control standards."

I wonder why so many people target to Thai airways ...it is not the only airline who can bring you to your home country if wished ...more are flying ...but OUT of Bangkok only ....

Forget your vouchers from Thai .....gone ...important debt collectors shall have priority..
