Classy, elegant, beautiful, top class services... sure one of world's best airlines

Thanks to the forumers from Thailand for the great info you give to us. Useful and interesting!

I wish I could fly with them in the future... Sadly, the rising oil prices mean I won't have the chance to use it from BCN Anyway I'd like to visit Thailand in the future so I'll try to know their great services.

Cheers.

THAI Provides Clarification on the Commission of European Communities’ Statement of Objection and Initiation of Proceedings

As Thai Airways International Public Company Limited has received the Statement of Objection and Initiation of Proceedings from the Commission of European Communities (EC) alleging that the company implemented various special surcharges in lieu of fuel surcharges, security surcharges, and war risk surcharges, air cargo shipment charges, and other surcharges, which is against the European Union (EU) law and has affected air cargo consumers. The EC conducted an inquiry into this issue and assessed the degree of loss incurred to consumers, which included the company as well as 25 other air carriers.

Flg. Off. Apinan Sumanaseni, THAI’s President, said that since THAI is the national carrier, with the Thai Government as majority shareholder, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has provided assistance to the company as it is of international significance. A committee was established concerning this matter, including the Ambassador of Thailand to Brussels, Belgium, who was of assistance in coordinating diplomatic relations matter. It is anticipated that the results will be reasonable, and hopefully the penalty fee will not be as high as mentioned in the news. Furthermore, the company has stated that it has consistently maintained a clear-cut policy that the company’s employees and staff, both domestically and internationally, that have been strictly adhered to.

I wish Thai Airways would fly into S.F....I have a recorded Bay Area newscast that I taped on 9/11 when a Thai Airways flight declared an emergency landing and landed here in San Francisco...The flight was from Bankok to Los Angeles, then when the terroists attacks commenced, all incoming international flights were diverted to Canada...The Thai flight was to be diverted to Vancouver BC, but the Thai pilot radioed that there was not sufficient fuel, so it landed here....I'll post up the clip on You Tube..
