Looks like the Generals mandated this one. Why would anybody fly them from DMK anyway ? Every time I look Nok & AAsia are 1/2 the price. Sucks if you're trying to transfer.

The move is made to save money. Landing fee is cheaper at DMK

 

The big problem is people that have connecting flight. Now you have to spend 30-90 min going from BKK to DMK.

It is going to be a problem for people connecting with Thai Airways flights.

Bad news for me. Due to the move I can't make my usual connection so now it is four hours between flights and a trip to DMK. My journey will be as fast by private taxi now and that is the way I'll probably go.

The way I read it was Thai will retain flights to BKK from/to HKT, CNX and KKC, but they will be operated by Thai International rather than Thai Smile.  That's what their website shows.

There will still be some Thai International flight from BKK to HKT, CNX and KKC but more than half the flight with a TG number now is Thai Smile flights. So you can end up with a much longer conection time or a trip to DMK.

 

If you look at KKC you will have 2 flights from BKK and 3 from DMK

It's a bit of a bugger's muddle, TBH.  Where I live (Hat Yai), it is still showing Thai Smile as providing connecting flights through BKK.

For now is only Chiang Mai, Phuket and Khon Kaen that Thai Smile moves to DMK. Thai have to save money so I'm sure the rest of Thai Smile flights will move at some time. Remeber that this move where made with one weeks notice. Thai is know for changes with short notice.
