Thai Airways to Charge Extra for Preferred Seats

Thai Airways has announced that it will soon give travellers the option of selecting preferred seats, for a price.

The preferred seat fee will vary based on actual flight distance flown, and Thai Airways says that the service will only be available after tickets have been purchased and not before.

The preferred seats selection will be available on all international flights, in both Economy Class and Royal Silk Class, for travel that begins on 27 July 2019 onwards.

However, preferred seats will only be available for purchase on Thaiís website beginning mid-August.

After tickets have been issued, Economy Class passengers will be able to purchase front row or exit row seats in each zone of Economy Class. Royal Silk Class passengers will be able to purchase First Class seats on flights where the preferred seats service is available.

Passengers had previously been able to select their seat of choice, free of charge, as long as their ticket was the correct class code, such as K, Q or another.
