Lounge Access Thai Smile

Flying Premium Economy to Bangkok to Luang Prabang and back. To which lounge(s) do we have access?

Only if you are Gold or above with Thai Airways will you have lounge access flying Thai Smile. Thai Smile is not a Star Alliance partner.

I assume you are flying coach BKK-LPQ. Flying Thai Smile "Plus" will give you lounge access.

The Thai Smile website says there is lounge access associated with my fare class. I guess I will see at BKK. I can always use Priority Pass which has many lounges at BKK.

If you are traveling Smile Plus, yes you have lounge access at Thai Lounge.

Do you already have your visa for Laos or are you getting visa on arrival?

I will have a Laos e-visa. Since this is an international flight... I would expect to be leaving from one of the international concourses.

Good question.
I always fly domestic Smile Plus and have access to the Royal Silk lounge in concourse A.
Thus I suppose you will have access to the international Thai lounges, Orchid and Silk.

Yes, you will have to go through immigrations and International departures. Just to let you know, if you are traveling domestic flights at BKK, there is a new location for security screenings. At BKK domestic departures, all the shops, restaurants and lounges are pre-security. You need to allow extra time to go from the lounge to the gate.
