    The connection to the BA flight is great! You arrive and depart from Terminal 5, no security and you will be airside for your BKK flight within 1-2 minutes of disembarking. There are lots of places to eat and drink whilst waiting for your connection, including reasonably priced options such as Wetherspoons (High Street prices).

    I'm not a fan of Terminal 3 (where Qantas and Cathay Pacific depart from) but T5 is good, as is T2 (but you will need to take the airside bus to T2, which I agree is a pain).

      I have just read that bookings on Thai Airways between Europe and Asia (and some other routes) sold and ticketed from the 1st April 2019 and until further notice will have a baggage allowance of 20k (down from 30k) in the lowest booking classes/cheap seats L, V and W.
      Other classes as yet no change.

          I read it was the 01/07/19 on the Thai Airways website.
          I did a search online LHR - BKK in July and baggage was still 30kg.

          However, domestic flights were 20kg.
          Pretty annoying and it was what made me choose Thai Airways to fly domestic plus the promotions were sometimes cheap than the budget carriers.

          My wife likes to go overboard with bringing stuff back and we always need to fit flying to Phuket into our schedule.

              That's because as said its sold and ticketed from the 1st April, if your quoting now for travel after the 1st then you still get the 30k.

              From the 1st April if you quote it will be 20k in the listed classes.

              Im definitely reading in some trade news its the 1st April?

                    Why not ?

                    Great airport with excellent facilities and cheap airfares, worldwide connections

                    Easy to get to from Northern England and costs less than train fare to Heathrow

                      The only thing that has put me off KLM lately is the use of Air France from Schipol to Charles De Gaulle rather than direct flight to Bangkok. Searching Newcastle to Bangkok regularly has this as the result. Done it once and was not impressed with Air France at all. Never had any complaints with KLM direct to Bangkok though and would certainly use it again
                      We'll never win the Premier League,
                      We'll never win a Cup,
                      We'll still follow UNITED !!

                        It’s a great fare, isn’t it? It’s been around for a couple of years so I don’t expect it to disappear anytime soon. You are normally only able to book flights on BA up to 355 days in advance.

                          Good luck with that, as EVA will be doing exactly the same, but from the 5th March

                            Only for ticket class A.

                            We bought flights on EVA for Mon only last weekend, travelling at the end of March, returning in May. The flight was under £500 and she gets 30kg.
