  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. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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/
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. In part," We have covered Thai Airways for years and I’ve always said that the company has WAY too much staff which is a result of their “fat cat” management style where people are being hired and put into positions with good pay packages even though the company doesn’t really have much need for more employees. Normally companies would just grow out excessive staff by natural retirements but the Thai Airways modus operandi has always been to serve as an ATM for connected individuals and families. It doesn’t just include employment and pay but also generous benefit packages for employ
  16. Interesting take. https://loyaltylobby.com/2020/10/31/suite-saturdays-club-ocean-view-terrace-suite-intercontinental-pattaya-resort-thailand/?omhide=true
  17. Wait,let me get this straight. You passed both a Taco Bell AND adjacent BK for those tacos and burger? Where is your head,man????? Kidding!!! Looks like you made the right choice as usual. Great TR and thanks for sharing.
  18. The VA has done both of mine and as mentioned, the prep is the worst part. If you decide to use the VA,be warned that you cannot drive yourself or use Uber or LYFT. Your driver must stay at the facility the entirety of your visit. Hope it works out whichever option you choose. They even provide the bowel cleaning mix which looked like Kool-Aid. "Now the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved a new drug that could make preparation for the screening easier. Called Plenvu, this liquid drug is designed to replace the traditional, poor-tasting bowel cleaning liquid that patients drink
  19. Now all of you living in the countryside have no reason not to get away....... https://loyaltylobby.com/2020/10/10/crazy-offer-stay-at-30-centara-hotels-in-thailand-until-december-31st-for-10000-baht-us315/?omhide=true
  20. Not a moment to be proud of. https://loyaltylobby.com/2020/10/08/epic-failure-thailand-delays-special-tourist-visa-indefinitely-48-hrs-before-first-tourists-arrive-no-refunds/?omhide=true
  21. All of these are 2 layers with a pouch inside for a 3rd filter if wanted. 1 guy I know trims a coffee filter to fit in the pouch but that's way over the top.Mine go in the wash.
  22. Or wash it. I wash all of mine with my laundry.
  23. Going that direction would be different. https://www.theflightdeal.com/2020/10/05/qatar-airways-washington-d-c-phuket-thailand-695-roundtrip-including-all-taxes-2/
