KLM and Air France have dropped Bangkok


Recommended Posts

I notice that while KLM were a frequent Bangkok visitor during the earlier repatriation flight scenario with sometimes two flights daily, regionally they now only service Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Manila. Their first BKK flight availability is 6 January 2021. A quick check on Air France website shows the same date of first availability.

Some carriers are still flying but there are no passengers or cabin crew, just belly freight. It doesn't do you much good unless you're a box.

Air France - KLM is one company.

All flights are 451 Euro, those with a duration of 14 hours, as well as those with a 27 hour duration?

 

Ever considered that those may actually not be effective flights?

Looks like fake news, a quick search on KLM shows they have flights available mid-October.

 

Did you try Paris - Bangkok flights, instead of Bangkok - Paris, like the previous poster?

 

Oh and at 2496 Euro, I'm gonna give those January flights a miss as well

Nope. Looking at both their booking sites, both KLM and AF have no BKK flights until January, as per the OP.

I searched KLM flights from Bangkok to Frankfurt. There are lots of options available in October at different, reasonable prices.

Yes, I know but they run two separate airlines with two separate fleets operating from two separate hub airports. KL were a regular repatriation carrier to /from Bangkok whereas AF wasn't.

Not on KLM's website you didn't. This was a search for a late September departure and a early December return. Look at the yellow highlighted bit.

You can confirm this on their 'where we fly' map on their website.

Air France showing 4-digit flight numbers which means it is a KLM flight operating but according to KLM's website, there's nothing bookable until 6 January. Same on their smartphone app. If all those flights are full, they won't be going broke any time soon.

 

FWIW flightaware shows KL 873 landed on time at BKK almost two hours ago.

 

Go figure.

The KLM ones seemed to disappear around a week ago as mentioned here:

The ones you mention, plus those to Jakarta, Taipei and Hong Kong transit stopped at BKK and could previously be used for repatriation, but looks like that's finished now.

 

And AF116 from Paris seems to be operating today (21/9/20) but that's it.
