As of Oct. 1, 2008, members of Thai Royal Orchid Plus can no longer earn miles with United Airlines when booking in certain classes. To see if the fare you purchase for any of the ROP airline partners will earn you miles, go to www.thaiairways.com/rop.
ROP members who rent with Budget in Thailand can get their third rental day free through Nov. 30, 2008. Quote promotion code TPNZ008 when booking your rental. Time and kilometer charges are free and the rental must be a minimum of three consecutive days, and not a one-way rental.
