Thai Airways Mileage Devaluation

Effective October 1, 2007 a new Thai Airways Royal Orchid Plus award chart will be in place.

North American awards, for instance, increase by 5,000 in coach and premium economy.. and 15,000 and 20,000 in business and first class, respectively. In general the higher pricing applies mostly to premium class awards, and is explained as being driven by Thai Airways’ improved services (though the increases apply on other carriers as well, aren’t reduced as United cuts its service, and mileage cost ought to track with price rather than service in any case since the mileage program is buying the seats from the transporting airline…).
