Busy selling donuts, that's why.

Thai is scared that their planes will never leave foreign soil.

That's the hole problem.🍩

I wish they wouldn't invent terms like "semi-commercial flights".  It sounds a lot like English, but has no real meaning as far as I can see. These are just commercial flights that have restrictions on who can fly on the inbound portion.

Perhaps they should be called Repatriation Charter flights (which includes that the passengers pay up front days before each flight departs).

There are no Chinese airlines listed. That is interesting considering the need for Chinese tourists.

It's unsurprising since the Chinese government has banned organized international tour groups, both inbound and OUTBOUND for the foreseeable future.

Group tours not individuals. Yes it has an effect but not to where it makes for zero flights.

They can also use a GPU or Ground Power Unit connected to the aircraft. That's why most planes are cooled down and comfy before you board... except bloody PIA at Islamabad!!!

I don't disagree, and further, seem to me as things relax we will see new paradigms affecting many things possibly including new international laws, travel regulations and processes and more.

 

Perhaps this could include having to show a 'Covid 19 Vaccination' proof before making international flight bookings and also do the same at check-in. 

 

Further will the world take on new attitudes because of a realization that a debilitating virus pandemic can easily start and quickly spread causing many deaths.

But if no engines are running, how does the stale air get expelled continuously out of the cabin?

Probably there will be a ground power unit and also a ground a/c plugged into the aircraft.

A GPU supplies electrical power only. If an aircraft needs Air conditioning and either doesn't have an engine running or an unserviceable APU, it will require separate dedicated external tubes connected to the packs. 

 

The smaller black cables are the electrical power, the big yellow / orange ones are for aircon.
