  1. Why would some idiot downvote this 4 years after I posted it?
  2. I meant recurrent training for the pilots, which is done on a yearly basis. I'm sure quite a few haven't flown recently. I could see the 777s for sure.
  3. I don't think they will ever leave the ground with paying passengers. Too expensive to operate from fuel standpoint. Plus flight deck crew training again and spares,ect.
  4. The makket is flooded with so many airframes already. A340s have zilch value. Their fate was sealed long before the pandemic.
  5. Chansin Treenuchagron is stepping down to become one of five administrators who will attempt to restructure Thai Airways. HUH? https://simpleflying.com/thai-airways-whats-next/
  6. https://www.theflightdeal.com/2021/06/17/qatar-airways-new-york-bangkok-thailand-659-roundtrip-including-all-taxes/ Be sure to use the code MPMEMBERS. There are similar deals from other cities in the US but none as good as ORD,SFO and JFK. But they have 12 US cities to choose from. Fare Availability: Valid for travel from September – early December or January 2022 – May 2022 for Sunday through Thursday departures and Sunday through Wednesday returns. A 7 day minimum stay is required. Must purchase at least 28 days in advance of departure Here's a sample itinerary wit
  7. That's what the code is for-to recognize their new affiliation with AS. But strangely enough, you don't have to be a member of AS frequent flyer program to use the promo code! I had originally booked from ORD but decided to pay the extra $30 to depart from SFO since I'm in Baja. Right,no premium economy. As an aside, Air Canada has a great deal where you can bid on premium economy and business seats if ticketed in economy. Simple process and you can increase,decrease or cancel you bid at any time. Pretty cool. You are absolutely correct about flight times.My flight time from SFO to DOA is
  8. The PM said today he expects the country to open to those who are fully vaccinated in 120 days w/o quarantine.
  9. Where does it stop between LHR and HKT?
  10. As low as $619 from ORD and $651 from SFO. Other cities also but higher than these 2. Use promo code MPMEMBERS. I just booked for April arrival. And their change/refund policy is very fair.
  11. Sometime I just shake my head when I read about perceptions regarding airlines and travel agencies. But I guess 32 years dealing with passengers at a major US airline gives me a different perspective, even though I left 15 years ago. I was about to post about how we handle passengers during an irregular operation/IROP but I didn't want to get into a discussion about policies and the 1 off or 2 off experiences here because they differ between carriers and of course, agencies. But I will continue to follow this thread until it reaches a point when perception is passed on as gospel and then I'll
  12. https://loyaltylobby.com/2020/11/13/thai-airways-will-operate-more-special-flights-to-europe-within-asia-until-december-30-2020/?omhide=true In part: THAI is currently offering limited inflight services for special charter and repatriation flights. Please note that inflight entertainment systems and other full services amenities are not available on these flights. So you end up paying 80-90,000 THB for a flight in Thai Airways “Business Class” without proper inflight service or even an entertainment system.
  13. Good price for travel as late as Sept. 2021 when visitors MAY be allowed entry. https://www.theflightdeal.com/2020/11/13/american-los-angeles-bangkok-thailand-490-roundtrip-including-all-taxes/
  14. My airline must be an exception. I have received a pension check every month since October 2005. The PBGC guarantees airline pensions if the carrier goes belly up.It applies to those making a certain amount and my category is protected to 95% of what I'm making. Pilots were not so fortunate. Many of us became very familiar with the PBGC when airlines were filing bankruptcy in 2005,including mine, but my company is well ahead of what is needed to keep the payments coming. We receive a letter showing what % is in the fund annually.
  15. He is the article I was about to post: https://thepointsguy.com/news/thai-airways-boeing-747s-for-sale/?utm_source=TPG%20Daily%20Newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=1694136&utm_usr=c7d890faeb5d7513b2d5ce72548d4b16522e03d7a469a7aea52607bf059a91e1&utm_msg=6380297e830146118843271344842693&utm_date=2020-11-06
