G'day, we were wondering if anyone knows if Thai Airways is up and running again? Pre-covid we'd booked business class flights with them Melbourne to Rome return (about $12,000) which naturally had to be cancelled. We're still waiting for a refund (our travel agent says we're in the queue). Anyway, we thought someone on the forum might have some insight into the situation. Many thanks, Owen & Elisa.

They’re up and running again, as in performing flights.

Not sure what the back story is in terms of solvency and financing (and hence refunds).

Did TG cancel your bookings? Have you tried a credit card chargeback?

Yes, they cancelled the bookings. Tried to get a chargeback from Amex but we were outside the timeframe...

Question for a friend whose daughter is flying out of MEL on Thai. She booked through an aggregator (e.g. Expedia, Skyscanner, etc) and when booking they didn’t ask for her middle name, so her e-ticket is her first and last name, no middle name. Her passport has her middle name.

Will this be an issue at check-in, and if so how to fix?

BTW, they're resuming flights to Perth next month.

After a long break, Perth is finally coming back. THAI will resume it’s services from Perth to Bangkok. If you're missing Thai food, enjoy warm Andaman seas and sunlight it’s time to return.

THAI will operate non-stop from Perth to Bangkok every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday starting from 05 July 2022.

agree with dajop, wont be an issue. The passport will be swiped at check in for thai authorities,and that will oncle the middle name.

Saw that when looking for status match opps but $14k upfront commitment bit scary...
