The deal
Thai Airways is rolling out the red carpet for business-class passengers by offering a complimentary overnight hotel stay in Bangkok, Samui, Krabi, Hua Hin, Phuket, Pattaya, or Chiang Mai.

Economy class passengers can also receive a free hotel stay if they book the Royal Orchids Holidays program, which includes three-night hotel accommodations and airfare starting from $1,167.

This offer is valid through Oct. 31 at over 100 hotels in Thailand. In addition, passengers flying from Los Angeles can also receive a free domestic flight to be used within Thailand when traveling before May 20. (We love it when airlines play nice. )

The dollars
Prices shown do not include taxes and fees. A sample search of round-trip economy fares for spring travel turned up the following prices from Los Angeles:

  • Bangkok: $959
  • Phuket: $1086
  • Chiang Mai: $1,086

The catch
If you are not booking the Royal Orchids program, you must fly in Royal First Class, or Royal Silk Class to receive the free hotel stay.
