Thai Airways has sent out their monthly newsletter and buried in it were the news that Fuel Surcharges are now back when booking TG flights either as revenue ticket, award or when using mileage upgrades.
Thailand got downgraded and ‘red flagged’ two years ago by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) as their aviation sector did not meet safety standards and has now been re-certified.

Fabulous Fridays: International First Class Cabin Sold As Business Class – Flying Thai Airways From Bangkok To Bali!
Every now and then you come across a very good deal for flights and so it happened it our Fabulous Fridays topic this week when I discovered that Thai Airways now flies with a Boeing 747 to Bali again.
As I already knew from searching the fares that Thai doesn’t sell First Class on this route I was wondering what would happen with the First Class cabin on this 747 and if it might be possible to secure a seat there.
Thai Airways has eliminated one of their most popular premium services for Business Class as the option to pre-order a specific meal for Royal Silk Class has disappeared from the website.
The airlines has offered this feature for many years and even though not very well known by leisure travelers it was extremely popular with regular Thai Airways Business Class guests.
Thai Airways is currently giving Mastercard cardholders a 10 % discount on round trip tickets originating in Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur or Penang).

Thai Airways for a long time used very traditional (Thai Style) and strange to handle champagne glasses that simple fell out of the picture in international First Class.
Thai Airways and Bangkok Airways today signed a code-share agreement for placing codes on each others flights for initially March 26 – October 26, 2017, and renewable there ever after.
Thai will place its code on 14 routes operated by Bangkok Airways and in return Bangkok Airways will code-share Thai’s Bangkok-Singapore flight.
