From the linked article...

 

The new service will serve transit passengers from international flights to travel further to major tourist provinces in Thailand in the future. 

 

 

This sounds good on paper but in practice? Meh.

 

With separate tickets, no through baggage, no CIQ, no protection for IRROPs, passengers will still have to arrange a long layover, or risk losing the ticket/flight. Inbound maybe not the end of the world, just buy a new ticket for BKK-HKT/KBV/CNX, Outbound though, you risk missing the int'l departure.

AirAsia's ingenious Covid refund policy was to ask me whether I wanted a refund or credit, then ignore my choice, give me credit, and make it absolutely impossible for me to complain.

Dishonest <deleted>.

Air Asia are still in business which is amazing considering the pandemic so let's give Fernandes some credit here! 

why ?   because he cheated thousands of customers out of refunds Asia wide .... that's the only credit he deserves. Just read complaints from Indonesians, Malaysians and many others. 

As donnacha said,  your given a choice ... credit or refund and even if you choose refund they still credit you so then you have to contact them to fix it which is almost impossible.

Thieves' of the sky.

Amazing, yet again they allow a low cost to fight head on with the most profitable routes of the national carrier, THAI. This while the people working at THAI are eager to start working again but are not allowed. Who get these brown envelopes I keep asking myself. The same low cost that was introduced to Thailand by the then Prime minister with his family business as the main shareholder. (he is now a fugitive criminal on the run) Looks I'm right, the politicians (not the military) want THAI to go under. (the air force boys make a lot of money with Thai and my guess is that politicians are fed up and want bigger slice of the cake, hence they do whatever it takes). Lion Air, Air Asia, Vietjet, please have a look at their safety records (+training of the pilots and pay to fly program, that means the pilot pays them to get in to the right seat) and compare with THAI. It makes no sense at all.

I'm surprised people are so niave to be treated as they have been, it's cheap for a reason!

Yet, they pay their pilots 2 to 3 times more than those who work for THAI. Yet people are bashing Thai staff for being freeloaders.

A friend of a friend told me, there is a new airline starting over the next 48 years.

7-11 Air.

Picking you up at your local store.

Airline decoration just as usual, looking the same as your store.

Competition is good, isn't it? Or do you prefer monopolies?

I have several flights booked with Thai Air BKK - HKT - BKK next year and all were recently cancelled, Thai Air has decided that only Thai Smile will operate domestic routes.

Yes I know, but why? THAI was flying those routes with profit.
