Read me first!

All airlines (although see note about TG) appear to give them departing from Bangkok, so the list below is mostly useful for inbound. It's important to remember that this is Thailand so just because an airline has given them out before is no guide they'll be given out in your case. It's worth asking both air-crew and the ground crew at the gate for them, as they're also occasionally forgotten. Thus the list below tends to reflect "this airline has given them out at least once" rather than being any guide to what will actually happen...

The list

AI (Air India) - J arrival and departures
AF (Air France) - J arrival (distributed in the jetway leaving the aircraft), J and W departures
AY (Finnair) - J arrival (jetway) and departure
BA (British Airways) - J arrival and departure (BE AWARE there have been instances where cabin crew have not handed out the pass and when asked either only given to the asking passenger or advised they aren't given out)
CX (Cathay Pacific) - OWE departure, J/F arrival and departure
EK (Emirates) - J and F arrival and departure. Gold and above in Y excluded by local rules.
EY (Etihad) inbound. Not sure of criteria.
HU (Hainan Air) - J outbound only, no inbound
HX (Hong Kong Airlines) - J departure and J arrival
JL (Japan Airways) - J/F arrival, departure J/F (OWE denied)
KE (Korean Air) - J arrival and departure, assume F as well
LX (Swiss Airlines) - J departure
LY (ElAl) - Arrival and Departure for J+F plus KD
MH (Malaysian Airlines) - J/OWE (not sure about OWS) outbound, J inbound & outbound
NH (ANA) - Outbound. Also J arrival (4/2016)
OS (Austrian) - J departure
OZ (Asiana) - J arrival and departure (no OZ F service in BKK) (no arrival 26/03/16)
PG (Bangkok Airways) - Blue Ribbon (C) or Premier ongoing for arrival and departure
QR (Qatar Airways) - J/F arrival and departure, OWS/E departure
RJ (Royal Jordanian) - J+OWR (and above) outbound, J inbound ,OWR/above in Y (if you manage to find RJ staff at the jet bridge)
SQ (Singapore Airlines) - J arrival and departure or PPS Club/Solitaire - sometimes on request only.
SU (Aeroflot) - J arrival and departure
TG (Thai Airways) - F+J have dedicated security area at airport for outbound, for arrivals not given but your boarding pass is sufficient
TK (Turkish Airlines) - J arrival
UL (Sri Lanka Air) - J+OWS arr + dep
VN (Vietnam Air) - J outbound only, no inbound
9W - J (Premiere) arrival and departure

Notes:

1) Immigration seems to only care about the airline stamp. Recent experience continues to be hassle free when the printed date and/or names do not match or are not filled in. YMMV. Edit: In early June (2015) was told by dragon to fill in the name field on the Fast Track voucher. She then checked to see if it matched BP name.

2) If you're inbound to BKK and have not received a voucher onboard the aircraft, be sure to ask!

3) Fast track vouchers do not have to be used on the date issued. If regular immigration queues are short on your arrival date, it's often worthwhile to pocket the voucher for a different arrival date when you may not have premium access (or to give as a gift to friends/family coming to visit).

The latest departure ones (Fast Track) are significantly larger than the ones immediately before (Premium Lane). Arrival ones look to be the same although I don't have a new one to hand.

Unless of course they've changed them again in the last month or so.

Great. I have used HX many times for departure and have received them as well.
I added the arrival data point to the wiki.

I advised a senior colleague that a (rare) age-related benefit would carry him through the arrival and departure fast-tracks at BKK.

Have I been reckless ?

Not reckless. I've watched as a family with an elderly member in a wheelchair was graciously let into the fast-track departure.

I'm rather hoping a perfectly fit and boringly suited bloke from London will get through as well, with or without grace ....

But just in case, I'm preparing a "they probably couldn't believe you were a senior" excuse

Slight thread drift but does anyone have any experience with these VIP meet and greet deals where you get the fast track lane as part of the fee? I'm coming in after a long day at work then a long-haul in economy so want to avoid as much queuing as possible.

From what I can remember these have now been stopped. You need to have a premium (first/business) ticket to be able to get access.
Some suggest they check the Fast Track Pass and the boarding pass when you are trying to access the FastTrack channel.

Bangkok Flight Services are doing as you say, however Bangkok Airport Limousine are still offering the full package.

The question, I guess, is whether it's actually functional. I suppose the best way to find out is to try. At least it's my company paying not me
