Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 14 October 2010

[HD videos below] On Wednesday, 13 October 2010, interviewed Mr. Craig Thomas, the Thailand and Mekong Region Manager of Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways.

In this interesting HD video interview we discuss the airline's operations in the region and what plans it has for the future. Some of the issues that are discussed include weight restrictions, online check-in, check-in kiosks, in-town check-in, routes - both within the Thai / Mekong region and intra-regionally, the political turmoil in Thailand and the impact those problems have had on Etihad's operations, the airline's policy with regards to charging for preferred seats such as exit seats, Abu Dhabi stop over restrictions / charges, sport sponsorship such as the one Etihad has with Manchester City Football Club and much, much more.

Etihad Airways first launched flights from Abu Dhabi in the UAE, to Bangkok, Thailand, in April 2004. In June 2006, the airline increased capacity and boosted the popular service to a double-daily operation. With one of its major competitors increasing their service to a thrice-daily service from 1 November 2010, how long will it be before Etihad Airways follows suit?

The HD video interview has been cut into two parts with the first part at the top, and the second just below that.
