Thai Airways celebrates 40 years to Oz

Thai Airways started flying to Australia with its first intercontinental flight to the Land Down Under on April 1, 1971. That flight went from Bangkok to Singapore to Sydney, with half the plane painted in Thai colours, the other, its partner airline, SAS.

Picture me in khaki school shorts, and a cruel bowl-cut hair do. I don't think I'd even heard of Thailand back then.

To celebrate this, they are now having a 40-Day Anniversary sale with special airfares starting from just AUD $955 to Thailand, Asia, India, and Europe, jing jing.  Yes, that would be return.

Best to check out their website for the fine print.

Thai Airways has aged gracefully since then. As for me, well, I can only dream of cruel bowl-cuts these days.
