  1. It's mentioned on the Thai Airways website now. It extends the suspension deadline each month I have noticed. But ticket use has been extended until December 2022 (if the airline even exists by then). https://www.thaiairways.com/en_GB/news/news_announcement/news_detail/covid_19.page Due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, and the continuous immigration restrictions and governmental measures imposed by several countries, THAI has been forced to extended the temporary suspension of its international operations until the end of December 2020.
  2. I have 2 different return flights booked over Christmas 2020 and New Year 2021, international from/to London. Today Thai Airways cancelled all of them. Looks like Christmas is cancelled and the forseeable future. Plus their big peak season in the gutter. Will they survive after this, and many other places come to that?
  3. Thai Airways TG916 has come into London 3 times in the past week. The latest one was about 10 minutes ago. Then TG917 has gone to Bangkok, 2 times so far but likely the 3rd one tonight as they turn the plane around. They are A350 planes. Is Bangkok Airport still closed to all except Thai's?
  4. I have heard Thai Airways also suspending ALL flights to/from UK. Is this true as cannot find anything on the Thai Airways website yet. Heard this via Thai TV.
  5. For years I have used the services of westeasttravel.com to book flights to Thailand. They usually offer the best prices and never have any problems with them. They have just ceased trading. Anyone with tickets (such as myself) are being referred on to the airlines directly for any bookings/changes/refunds..
  6. New Terminal 2 opened at Heathrow Airport this morning. Starting off with flights from United Airlines only then slowly introducing others including all of Star Alliance. Thai Airways and Eva will start flying from Terminal 2 on 2nd July 2014. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-27691651 http://www.heathrowairport.com/heathrow-airport-guide/terminal-2
  7. It came down again, I booked at £449 for early next year. But at these prices they will sell out very soon. It was cheaper on the WestEast website, cheaper than Etihad's own website.
  8. Heathrow airport has warned airlines that passengers could face 12-hour delays next week when immigration officers go on strike over pensions. Chief operating officer Norman Boivin said there was a danger of "gridlock". Heathrow operator BAA has been holding talks with airlines and the UK Border Agency to try to minimise the impact of Wednesday's public sector strike. PM David Cameron said it was clear there would be an impact at ports and airports but borders would be secure. "At the very least there will be longer queues and people will have to wait longer at borders," his spokesman
  9. Thai Airways UK website has an advert on it saying that from 15th December they will have seat-back TVs in Economy Also this news on the long-awaited A380 aircraft:- THAI has set a tentative date of January 2013 for the operation of its A380-800 operating on its Bangkok-London service. Bigger individual TV screens will be the big improvement in Economy Class and there will be a total of over 500 seats on this aircraft. Quoted from:- http://www.thaiairways.co.uk/pages/contacts_and_information/news.htm
  10. Thanks for the responses. The battery is something to consider. I have now found an iPhone.

    IPhone 3GS

    I know that the iPhone 4 can now be found in Pattaya. But what I am looking for is the older iPhone 3GS Is it still possible to buy this in places such as Tuc Com for a reasonable price? Or do any members on here have an iPhone 3GS for sale due to a recent upgrade? I am after genuine iPhones only, not a copy or clone. I don't mind if it's used, locked or unllocked to a network, as long as it's fully working.
  12. Last night (Sunday 13th February) at 11pm a Thai lady fell from the 9th floor of Yensabai Condo in South Pattaya. I am informed that she had a farang husband. Don't have any more details at the moment as to what caused this death.
  13. This talk of the DWP randomly checking up on people at airports is interesting., but I can't see why DWP are noseying into people going abroad. By benefits, does that mean unemployment, or disability, or even state pension? There is talk in Parliament of making the state pension applicable to 'residents' only, so maybe this is all part of the forthcoming fascist plan.
  14. There is a distinct risk that the ash cloud from the volcano could be coming back over southern UK from tomorrow, for at least 2 days. If so then Heathrow and other airports are under threat again. Just announced on the BBC News Channel.
