Thai Smile Airlines

Jump to last reply

I recently purchased an airline ticket from Southern Thailand to Northern Thailand on the Thai Airlines website. I was asked to type in my Star Alliance Frequent Flyer Number and I was happy with the price. When I went to check in at Hat Yai at the Thai Airlines counter, I was told that my flight was with Thai Smile so I would not be getting Frequent Flyer Miles and I would not have lounge access. I was given the seat assignment 36K, which was the sixth row of the plane next to the window on an Airbus A320, a single isle plane. I walked by the lounge which only had one visitor. Thai Smile was not able to give me my second boarding pass until I arrived in Bangkok where I had to go to the fourth floor and then go through security once again. My flight to Udon Thani arrived a few minutes late. Two days later I took a bus to the Laos border. This seemed to be the cheapest way to get to Laos.

The flights were fine but with so many good airlines in Asia, one should consider Tiger, Air Asia, and Bangkok Airlines.

I had another flight with Jet Star Asia, and I would avoid this airline. After purchasing the flight, I then tried many times to pay for baggage. My credit cards were rejected at least eight times. I even tried my Merrill Lynch card and it was rejected. When I arrived at the airport in Phnom Penh, I had to pay $40 USD to check a bag. This time they had no problems getting my credit card to work. The website says the charge is $40 Australian Dollars.

If you are planning to fly to South Asia, December to February is the best time to go--unless you like rain.
