Piyasvasti Amranand, president of Thai Airways International, has promised tangible changes for the better at the troubled national flag carrier. Here’s excerpts from an interview last Friday with Suthichai Yoon, the final of a two-part series:
Here is the original news:
THAI has fallen to 28th place, which is obviously not good. Most complaints are about seats. Food is OK but should be better. Business class has taken a hit, as many airlines offer seats that can recline up to 180 degrees. In-flight entertainment is said to be inadequate.
Infrastructure plays a crucial role in economic development and enrichment of living standards. Various stages of economic development require different levels of infrastructure upgrades or enhancements to ensure infrastructure in fact facilitates economic activities. Thailand has been facing a series of infrastructure challenges, both new and well-established. To name a few: there is a need for infrastructure services to catch up with economic development and international competition, manage the growth in urban areas, respond to global energy prices, and ensure basic services for the poor.
