Thai Airways International - A Star Alliance Member - The Airline Network For Earth - has posted a net profit of 3 400 000 000 baht / US$80 920 000.

The profit for Q3 was up from 745 000 000 baht / US$17 635 800.

The profit was due to a foreign exchange gain of 2 130 000 000 baht / US$
50 694 000. The airline is exposed to the highly fluctuating Thai Baht.

For the Financial Year ending 30 September 2002, the airline made a profit of 9 200 000 000 baht / US$218 960 000.

"The results were lower than consensus, but they still rose so I don't think people were too upset. Buying planes boosts sentiment. The kneejerk reaction is more planes, more passengers, more money," said Ben Knowles, head of sales at Adkinson securities.
