    It's a shame that the alliances don't have some lower cost options for smaller airlines wishing to join. I've ended up giving up on TG, so most of my domestic flights in Thailand are now with PG unless their schedule just doesn't fit. But I don't fly enough to really make their FFP of much value to me. I'd much prefer if they were in an alliance where I wouldn't just be wasting crediting miles to a program where they'd never amount to anything.

    The domestic Blue Ribbon lounge is nice since the redo... curious to see what happens when the international one is undertaken.

    I'm not really surprised by the move, or lack thereof, as they'd not only need to take care of the extra costs but would need to redo their FFP as they currently only have Premier (status) and Priority (no status). Also they don't have the space in their business lounges to handle alliance pax with status (since all Y pax get gratis entry to the main lounge already this wouldn't be problematic). While I'd like to parlay my PG status into an alliance wide one i just don't foresee happening and didn't prior to this announcement.
