Thumbs up Free Wi Fi on Thai !!

Thai now gives free on-board Wi Fi to its Platinum ROP members......and it's the "unlimited surfing" package. This is a really good benefit, kudos to Thai for introducing this benefit.

That is nice, but still stingy. AirNZ provides free wifi to all pax. Iíd suggest that at least ROP Golds/Plats might be the appropriate group.

Oh so thatís why I saw someone getting a free wifi code on board! And my envious brain just automatically assumed that person was just some important TVIP. (Well actually, that person probably is also a TVIP, but the over the top service might have been because of ROP Plat.)

I was really surprised to find no WiFi at all, free or paid on the planes to/from Bangkok to London and Frankfurt. Real surprise in this day and age.

I for one am someone who likes having no onboard WiFi. One of the last opportunities to disconnect from the world
I am dreading the day when the connections are strong enough for people to start doing video calls and what not onboard….

As much as I love Wifi on board yes, the FOMO is real when you see friends out partying and you're stuck in C seats with bad food.

actually TVIP without Platinum status (and upgrade or unpaid ticket) get a better treatment as foot soldiers with Platinum treatment, who pay for the ticket....TIT!

Sorry, not familiar with the values - farm animals don’t do well in a condo in BKK

If Bangkokians knew the real value of such bulls, we would soon see a new trend in urban farming: urban bull breeding
