Thai Airways dates back to 1960 as a joint venture with SAS, which owned 30% of the shares.

In 2005 the company acquires new aircraft Airbus A340-500s and resumes nonstop aircraft between Bangkok and New York.

In the late 2000s, Thai Airways' explosive growth stalled. This was due to several factors: rising fuel prices, internal political conflict in Thailand and the global economic crisis. In 2008, the company recorded the first loss in 40 years of its existence. It amounted to about $ 21 billion. However, by the end of next year, the national carrier of Thailand again began to profit from flights.

Airlines of the World and Russian ...

In general, the flight went well, but the food that they offer on the plane completely rubber, there can not be, but the price they are asking for it exorbitant.

I liked that inside every aircraft in trim consider soft warm tones. Finally, unable to sleep, and my eyes are not so tired at the sight of the cabin.

I fly by the company for the fourth time. Planes new clean. Guides are constantly smiling. When we got into a zone of turbulence, we are constantly distracted by conversations, so that flights performed flawlessly. Pilots would like to express special thanks. We made a very soft takeoff and landing - great.

I liked everything, including two meals a day, wide seats and an impressive display! At the same time as the power at the highest level. I recommend!

At the end of 2014, I flew from airlines to Bankok. Impressions are exceptionally positive, all at a high level and food, and service and alcohol. The flight was comfortable, both in that and in the opposite direction. Many people say that there is nothing to look at in the plane and there is no menu in Russian. I'm ready to argue with them. During the whole flight with her husband, we watched five movies in Russian. The only negative is the delay in departure in the opposite direction for half an hour. As a result, did not have time for the domestic flight, had to spend 24 hours at the airport and incur unforeseen expenses for the exchange of tickets. These costs are refunded to us, explaining that they do not bear any responsibility for the docking. Let's go to court. But despite this trouble, we will fly with them.
