It depends on the class of the ticket, some tickets do not allow changes at any cost. Suggest you call Thai Airways, they'll know !

They are closed now that is why i posted on here. I only want to know how much baht it will cost to change it in Thailand not from the UK as they will probably charge double here.

The flight class is economy.

There are many different economy fares, (e.g. Y, V, Q, etc.). Each has its own set of rules regarding changes. THAI's call center in Thailand is open 24 hours. You may want to call them directly and ask.

As mentioned by others it all depends on the ticket. I've been charged 500Baht to change a special deal eTicket that i'd bought from a Thai airways counter . Other times i've had standard fare tickets changed free of charge.

Depends on the agent however that being said, never paid a baht to change even restricted fares.

Well farma and britmaveric you were way out. It costs 100GBP to change your flight. Not 500 baht or 0 i guess it was other airlines you used, but thanks anyway. Oh britmaveric you must be special to be able to change restricted flights for free.

Sorry it cost you 100 quid, as I mentioned, it all depends on your ticket. I know what i've paid to change Thai airways tickets and now i know what you did.

For what it's worth, most domestic tickets on THAI can be changed free-of-charge because most domestic TG fares are full-fare economy (i.e. 'Y' class).

Not special, perhaps lucky? However I've done it 3x now and not a single baht charged. I just emailed them and they were quite helpful. Now if it were Lufthansa, I'd be paying 100quid. Jammy gits are merciless. :o

I booked it through a company called travelocity, maybe if i went directly through thai air it might of been free to change, but going direcly through thai air would of been 100 quid more expensive than travelocity. lol

Oh well you live and learn, money comes and goes, 1 thing for certain i will be enjoying my time in thailand.

cheers

tomuk76 wikipedia has a page on fare classes http://en.wikipedia....ki/Travel_class

It should give you a basic idea of the ticket types available and why restrictions or different fees apply when changing tickets.

Over the years l've changed tickets many times with alot of different airlines, the standard charge seems to be around 50, although this is down to the discretion of the duty manager of whichever airline you are travelling with. If you give a good enough excuse about why you had to change your ticket they normally let you off. Last time l told them how my wife's mothers buffalo was driving her brothers motorbike had an accident, had to go to hosipital which cost me a fortune and consequently l had no money to pay for the change of ticket !! :o
