Thais seeking repatriation and foreign nationals who qualify, flights are already operating into Thailand for those groups.

Given that the airline is bankrupt and staffed by, how can I put this tactfully, Thais, do you really think that maintenance will have been a priority during the shutdown?

Why would Thais want to fly to UK at this time? 

I met a group if Thai ladies in Salzburg/Austria last weekend. They had flown to Germany. I find it strange that I can't travel to Bkk because Thais are worried we drag in Covid. Yet Thais can travel to countries with daily new infections. Nice that Thais spend their cash in Europe.
