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
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).

TG F you get collected from the gate and driven to Immigration.

TG F has its own check-in area on the right side of the main terminal. This runs into the Fast Track immigration channel, through which you are escorted and placed in a cart and driven to the F lounge.

Nice.

Yes, but most of the Euro flights arrive around mid-day, as well as plenty of regional flights.

Question SQ economy?

If I'm flying in economy on SQ, but am KrisFlyer Gold, am I entitled to Fast Track?

If it makes any difference, I'm arriving at 0835 on a Wednesday, and leaving at 1830 on a Monday. Both are international flights.

Well I arrived at BKK mid-day on KL and the immigration lines were horrifically long. Half the desks were un-manned and KL does not issue fast-track to biz pax. However I flew out on EK in F and they for sure give fast track. The queue to leave BKK at noon was very, very long for non-fast track and no line at all for fast track.

Flew in last night on UA 881, NRT-BKK. A UA rep was standing in the jetway as we exited the aircraft, handing out FASTRACK passes to all F and C passengers.

I flew in and out of BKK in CX J as a One World Emerald, got a pass each way at check in.

Very nice thank you, both times the immigration line was horrendously long.

I have just heard that the new St Regis Bangkok hotel will provide fast track to all its guests. I don't know how they're going to arrange this on arrival, but it's another way ticket to bypass the immigration lines.

I would bet that if you check in using the coach line that they will not have them......you can always ask, or like someone else said there are other immigration gates you might want to look for them.....

I wish Narita had them to use at Arrivial , but no luck

Was this with Delta? I have received Fast Track passes on the plane before arrival and at check-in on departure to and from Sydney last May/June. That was the first and the only time I have got one. On my recent trip to BKK three weeks ago, the thought of Fast Track did not cross my mind. It wasn't offered, nor did I ask.
On the flight to Sydney, an FA, with the passenger manifest in hand, walked around the economy cabin, matching the names on the passenger manifest with people seated in the cabin, putting red dot stickers on the seats of PMs and DM's. Just before landing, the FA came and handed the fast track pass to the passengers whose seats had the red dot sticker.
P.S. Read your earier post that it was on UA. Have you have got a Fast Track pass on DL?

USA flights via arrive around midnight. Arrival and departure times are determined by which airline you fly, not where your trip originates.
