Did they start paying salaries to expats again or are they still expecting them to work for free?

I landed BKK yesterday and saw a 744 from Orient Thai on the cargo ramp. How many do they have floating around?

I'm surprised they're still around... They were a dodgy operation 12 years ago. They expected crews to travel to BKK on their own dime, pay for accommodations. Remain in country whilst obtaining a Thai Airman Certificate, which back in the day take more than a month. YGTBSM as I enquired to confirm this.

I'm sure theirs a worn path to the offices looking to fly for them:rolleyes:.

Wonder if old Dwight is still there.
