Yes they did. Also Etihad suspended all their flights...

I think you are not watching the news.... there is a coup in the capital - Bangkok!!! The Army revolted against the PM and took over the city .. Hence Emergency Law or Rule!!!

So everything is on hold!!

If LY flies normally I guess it's not that bad so far.

As far as I'm aware only EK and EY cancelled their services. Others may have been delayed but no outright cancellation of a route (temporarily). Dont know why, its been a quiet coup, by all accounts.

Thats why I wanted to know why EK suspended operations, it seems strange if LY could continue what caused these two to stop.

BA continued their flights to BKK, as did QF. If a passenger felt they did not want to travel due to the problems in Bangkok, they were being re booked for a later date, however I'm not sure if refunds where being given if the passenger did not want to travel nor about the option of re routing the passengers say via SIN or HKG.

The title just says Did....

As far as I'm aware, if you were ticketed through to SYD/MEL you could reroute through other stations. No refunds, but could rebook for another date/destination, if the latter incurred extra charges then the passenger would pay.

I do not see any reason for canceling flights to BKK.

There was a report yesterday morning on radio news here in SYD that the BA9/10 and QF1/2 flights which were in the air at the time were rerouted via SIN, not sure if it's true or if they continued doing it.

Interesting, as I am almost certain that EY did depart (albeit with a rather low pax load)...

My girlfriend and I are meant to be flying LHR-AUH-BKK with EY on 11th Nov. Do you think it'll be OK by then?

No reason it should not be - I am not at work at the moment, but I am almost certain that the EY BKK schedules were not cancelled. I shall check up when I am back.

By that time too, you should be flying LHR-AUH-NBK.

I'm not sure where you got your information from but here at Etihad we did not suspend one single flight to Bangkok. There was a slight delay to the first service due to depart after the coup occurred (42 mins) whilst our Security Department assessed the situation and that was it.

Emirates initially suspended all services, as noted in the Gulf News, but not Etihad so best check your facts next time please.



Etihad Girl, You're a great way to fly.

Although Thailand seems to have military coups as an essential part of their political process now, a military take-over of civil processes is in every way a subversion of democratic society - and is always potentially very dangerous for everyone involved. So airlines flying to a country which has been taken over by a military uprising would have to be very wary of moment-by-moment events.
