    So much for the validity of a Memorandum of Understanding....
    "Thai Airways said on Friday it would not extend its budget airline contract with Singapore's Tiger Airways, effectively terminating their alliance.
    The Thai flag carrier's planned new regional airline, Thai Smile, would help replace the alliance with Tiger, chairman Ampon Kittiampon told reporters after a board meeting.
    "We will not extend our contract with the MOU which will expire next month because we now have Thai Smile," Ampon said.
    In 2010, Thai Airways signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to form the alliance with Tiger Airways to operate a new budget carrier, Thai Tiger, but the plan has been delayed pending approval from the transport ministry."
