When purchasing a ticket with THAI, the booking class associated with the paid fare determines the miles earned. Discounted and promotional Economy Class fares are great value, but are not eligible for full mileage accrual or no mileage accrual.
On all THAI flights from 01 December 2016 Royal Orchid Plus members will earn miles in Economy Class as per the ticketed booking class as follows.*
