Oh well, it probably means the political elite will nominate a new president who will agree to a board of politicians. Simple.
Those with a commercially-minded attitude are welcome to leave at TG.

Such a shame as TG has such potential if structured correctly, with some simplification and rationalisation.

Sometimes I wonder the harshness of my fellow aviation enthusiast for their zeal for airlines to be profitable. You have to remember that it is a transportation service at its bare minimum.

Thai Airways is not in the list of basket case airlines such Air India, SAA, Alitalia and many others where politics, corruption and entitlement is rife. Thai does have those issues but no where near to the extent of the basket case airlines. TG's mission statement is more complicated than western airlines.

[list=]Provide a safe service.
Provide "affordable" air transportation for the local masses (Thailand is not as rich as most of the western countries)
Be an enabler for tourism.[/list]

They tick all those boxes to me.

Since I am an aviation enthusiast, them having all types of wide body aircraft in their fleet is awesome.

Honestly it can't get any better, professional and attractive female cabin crew, service better than most western airlines. Since I pay out of my own pocket and fly economy, I couldn't care whether J class passengers get aisle access or not.
My comments are based as an aviation enthusiast first, then as a passenger who paid for his own ticket, after that a passenger on a business trip and finally an armchair CEO.
