I really like the Thai FF scheme. I managed to qualify for top status just flying economy class. My last flight last month was in 1st class, seat 1a with a free leg to Manila and back. I only had to pay 70 000 airmiles for the return flight (economy is usually 65 000) because of a birthday offer they make to the top FF card holders. I still have a guaranteed upgrade for my next trip and enough airmiles for a business class trip using the birthday offer in September.

Emerites only send you via hong kong when the dubai - bangkok flight is already full.

I found the Emirates Skywards program very generous since you'll get 100% of the miles even for the cheapest booking class. many european carriers will just give you 50%. With two eco flights from europe to bkk a year you can qualify for the silver program and then use the nice business class lounge in dubai.

Im also a silver card holder with Emirates Skywards programme.

 

I find it the best programme going, and even better if you pay a little extra to book your flight through the Emirates website, where you will recieve an extra 25% airmiles.

 

If you use your miles to upgrade to Business class, you can expect a chauffer driven car to pick you up from your house (if you live within a 70 mile radius of the airport),and use of the Business lounge at your UK airport.

 

You will find loads more info and photos of the food and service you come to expect with Emirates here.

The first time i fley with Qutar on their reward programme i was given use of the business class lounges travelling on economy and boosted to first class from Dubai to BKK !! Was great !! Mx

 

They recently sent me infomation though stating that they were changing the rewards system so what they were offering they may not be offering anymore.

Thanks for the replies, i'll be looking at Thai air see what there offering in terms of price seems to

 

have a lot of good reports.

 

I want to stick with Emirates as i have Silver but they still quote £250 more to go dubai - bangkok than

 

via hong kong, maybe i was lucky but flew 4 times last year paid between £450 - £523.

 

Qatar coming in at £502 now with minimal stopover, not sure if its worth waiting and hope emirates

 

drops to nearer £500.

 

Past expiereance tells me they can drop as much as £200 but also rise just as quick.

 

Thanks again

Spider,

 

I have flown with Emirates more than 10 times over the last few years, and have never paid less than £480 (BHX-BKK), and that was about 2 years ago.

 

You will be lucky if can get an economy Emirates flight for less than £500 including tax now (depending on when your planning to travel), and I feel very happy to have just paid £524 for my flight in early February through Emirates own website, gaining myself an extra 3000 airmiles for booking through this way, thus allowing me to cash in my miles next time to book economy and travel in the 'pointy end' of the plane.

why not make a one day stop in HKG? for the 140 quid that you'll save you can have a fun day there and you will earn some 2000 more skyward miles

Im going on the 9-Jan and the prices were simular to mid feb. I got my ticket with Thai Airways ( cant be bothered with the lengthy stops this time) for £640 to Phuket its £590 to BKK. Its from a travel company = Southall Travel. Worth having a look.

the other good thing the flights go at night (usually the flights for emerates / qutar) leave in the morning. I arrive in thailand with enough time to get to a hotel and go out for the night!!

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6
