They’re obviously back in the black if they can afford to give away 2 brand new 777s. 🤑

Maybe they have managed to flog a few of Thai Airways version of the Thailand elite visa package "Time to Gold"

https://milelion.com/2022/05/27/thai-airways-time-to-gold-would-you-spend-s14k-for-2-years-of-star-gold/

Aside from the visual and aural irritation of the Tinglish tag line used by THAI - obviously they got rid of the English speaker in the company during the restructuring - that doesn’t appear to be a particularly attractive offer for most.

 

I am still waiting for my RMF to recover after taking a write down a couple of years ago, as they had invested some of the fund into a Thai airways debenture. As the writer of the article notes, this “Time to Gold” (🤪) offer appears little more than a short-term cash grab and you should enter at your own risk…

Which is why I said "flog" and Their version of  Thailand Elite. You only have till Christmas next year to use your flight credits as well. It would defamation to say what I really think about this promotion. I didn't think I needed to draw a picture.

  I have been gold with Thai Airways for many years and the service used to be exemplary not so much now, and with the ever present covid rules flying business is like, well, your almost better off in economy. There are some things I still find quite useful in my ROP membership but it's certainly not for everyone. I've got the airline equivalent of battered wife syndrome I've been with them to long to leave. Lol

Wasn’t having a go at you, I was just passing broader comment on the article and THAI.

Sorry you took it that way. Enjoy your weekend.

and the airline expects to resume trade on the stock market by 2025

I imagine if they come out with a 'double you money in a year' spiel then Thais will grab those shares like hot cakes !

Here is a recent trip report on Thai business class.  Not flattering to say the least.

When people start to look at tickets prices the recovery wishes of Thai Airways may fall flat.

Very expensive with other credible carriers flying the same sectors for far less.

Translation:

The bail-out plan prevents massive loans. It's not an option for the airline nor the government as a stakeholder.

In delusional theory, perhaps. 

Saying so doesn't make it so.

 

If they're so confident, why not open their full and unreported books to public scrutiny.

I rather doubt they are making the rehabilitation progress they are claiming?

After ALREADY HAVING obtained stupendous loans and a government bail-out package, gone through a comprehensive debt restructuring scheme and narrowly escaped utter bankruptcy, Thai Airways graciously informs us that they...

 

"...no longer seek massive loans" and that their "economic situation [is] looking better".

 

Go figure.

 

Now they can splurge again - hooray! - and in a decade or so we all are going to experience deja-vu once more. It's an endless cycle with this airline.

A decade? A couple of years more like. And if the next election process results in an elected government free of the dead hand of control of various decaying dynasties of dinosaurs, then the end of the road may loom...
