The airline will still be called Thai Smile, but will become its own airline with separate management and accounts only slightly nudged towards success by Thai Airways. Along with the change come some cancelled services, mainly from Bangkok to Chang Mai and Phuket.
If you're like us and you were looking forward to smiling on a flight from Bangkok, all itineraries have been reissued on regular Thai Airways services. Our confusion began when we received a new receipt with no explanation of why we were now on a different airline. Although we we're excited to experience the doting service for which Thai is familiar, we aren't too happy for the change from an Airbus A320 to Airbus A300.
