Thai Airways Faces “Significant Loss” in 2015

thai airways emptyAfter posting its biggest annual loss since 2008 last year, Thai Airways International is expected to post another “significant loss” this year. As part of an extensive recovery plan, the state-controlled carrier will be forced to sell aircraft, reduce flights and drop unprofitable routes to a number of European destinations in order to return to profitability by 2016.
This comes after “significant safety concerns” raised by the International Civil Aviation Organization have Thai airlines face bans on new flights to a number of foreign countries, for example, Japan and Korea.

The Bangkok Post quotes the THAI president as saying this week in an interview:

It will be another tough year for Thai Airways in 2015, as the company is implementing a painful recovery programme.

Thailand’s national carrier, which has posted annual losses over the past two years and has seen its stocks plunge by 25% this year, would initially sell 42 ageing aircraft, reduce its fleet to about 77 planes, and “substantially” trim operating costs, the THAI president said.
Thai Airways would reportedly also stop unprofitable routes to some European cities like Madrid and Moscow, reduce flights to cities like London in order to shift capacity to flights in Asia, and close its air cargo business.
The only sign of an upward trend for THAI at the moment seems to be that the state-controlled airline has “filled about 75% of its seats in the first quarter of 2015, compared with about 69% in the October-December period” of 2014.

The picture embedded above was taken by a friend in mid-November 2014 just before take-off on a THAI flight from Bangkok to Copenhagen. “Lucky, not many passengers,” he ironically commented on his Facebook post.

Young Foreign Tourist Pickpocketed By Ladyboy on Soi 7

ladyboy pickpocket soi 7A drunk foreign tourist in his mid-twenties, whose nationality has not been revealed, reportedly had his wallet (or bag?) pickpocketed by a ladyboy on Pattaya Soi 7 late Friday night.
The incident was captured on CCTV at Shooters Bar where the young man had earlier been drinking with friends.

Pattaya One reports that following a night of heavy drinking at the popular coyote bar, the “heavily intoxicated” tourist

stumbled outside the bar in order to smoke a cigarette when he encountered a ladyboy who proceeded to steal his wallet. He then left on a motorbike driven by a second ladyboy who was waiting, with the engine running, nearby.

PDN report that the ladyboy “snatched his bag”.
While police were immediately notified and rushed to the crime scene, the drunk victim, for some strange reason, preferred not to proceed with the case but simply “walked away”. Nonetheless, Pattaya One adds, police urged the media to publicize the story as a warning to other unsuspecting tourists and to

highlight the ever-present dangers of ladyboys and other criminal elements who prey on vulnerable foreign tourists around Pattaya city.

We’re happy to follow suit. While we know that many of our readers have a secret or not-so-secret crush on katoeys (which is perfectly fine), the legions of low-life ladyboys roaming the streets of Pattaya after dark can be a real pain in the rear at times and the crime rate among those creatures of the night appears to be constantly rising. Watch out, especially when you’ve had one too many.

Pattaya Daily News also have a video report:
