Thai Airways Royal Orchid Plus - 3 month old baby
Dec 22, 10, 10:14 am
Hi, I was wondering is someone could help me
I am a Royal Orchid Plus Gold Member.
I want to use some of my miles and am flying from Bangkok to Phuket return
Do I need to add my 3 month old daughter as a nominee ?
She will be on my lap

Check with Thai first.
I think babies go free on domestic, or for 10%. Hardly worth using the miles.

Hi, thanks for the replies.
The problem is their phones are never answered and they are not responding to my emails.
To get my girlfriend to travel using my miles I need to add her as a nominee
I just wanted to know if I have to add the baby to that list
But like you say Larry she should be free so I just need a ticket for her but thats the part I don't understand

I couldn't find any mention of it in the English Member's Handbook, but in the Japanese TG ROP page, it says that the nominees have to be at least 2 years old. If so then you won't be able to use miles for her, you'll have to pay the infant fee instead.

I am surprised you can't get through to them.
I always get an agent in less than 10 minutes on hold.
+66 (2) 356-1111
They're staffed 24 x 7.
Try that main call-center number in BKK. You should get a hold of someone there to clarify.

The T&Cs for nominees were brought up in this post:
The first two points are as follows, and the 2nd point states the 2 year old age limitation:
•Each Royal Orchid Plus member may redeem Awards for family, friends or any individual of their choice using their Award Nominee List.
•Nominees must be 2 years of age or older. Corporations or other legal entities cannot be designated as Nominees.
