Re: Why is Thai Airways so Expensive?

You probably have chosen a date where the cheaper tickets are sold out. What is the HND-BKK date? I don’t remember the date. I was playing around with dates due to a situation with ANA. ANA swapped its NRT slots for HND slots and it screwed up all the connections to BKK. They now have horrible slot...

Re: Why is Thai Airways so Expensive?

I think you just found an expensive flight. I'm based in TYO, and whenever I've needed to go to Thailand, fares have never been that high. They are usually the same as NH or JL at about $600 rtn. Where are you flying from? I have always wanted to take them but they seem to be really expensive. I ha...

Re: Why is Thai Airways so Expensive?

Well i don’t know too much about their pricing in general. But have you noticed this frequently or are you basing it off this one time. Because if that’s the case, it doesn’t really give you a good big picture. This one flight on that day may be full and all that’s left are the more expensive bucke...

Why is Thai Airways so Expensive?

I would love to fly Thai Airways but their prices always seems to be way more than everyone else. I was looking at a flight from HND to BKK. ANA has their flights for around $600. Thai airways has a codeshare with ANA in which they fly a B747. There price is $2,400. I know this airline has been taki...

ANA Horrible Time Slots

Last year we took ANA from IAD to BKK via NRT. There were two flights from NRT to BKK. One would have a 1.5 hour layover and the other was a e hour layover. This year it appears ANA is pushing a lot of it’s flights to HND. This is great if you live in Japan but horrible if your connecting. ANA has 4...
