Introducing a very rewarding way to redeem miles. When departing from Bangkok on THAI, excess baggage can be paid for using Royal Orchid Plus miles.*
You can use miles for excess baggage beginning at 10 kilos over your allotted weight and for additional increments of 5 kilos up to a maximum of 30 kilos.

Note: Available from Bangkok to THAI destinations in listed countries.
At airport check-in in Bangkok, at least 2 hours prior to flight departure determine the amount of excess baggage and go to THAI Customer Service where miles are instantly deducted from your account, then present the receipt at check-in. You can even redeem miles for an Award Nominee, however you must also be present at check-in to authorize mileage deduction from your account.
Whatever the reason for overweight baggage, shopping, studying or extended travel Excess Baggage Awards are a great way to use miles and save.
* Excess baggage is determined by the paid fare and/or Royal Orchid Plus membership status. Excess Baggage Awards are valid on international THAI flights departing from Bangkok, beginning at 10 kilos and in increments of 5 kilos. Excess Baggage Awards have no cash value and any difference in the weight and miles used cannot be refunded in currency, nor can Excess Baggage Awards be re-credited.
