Last Minute flights to Thailand are a hit and a miss. The myth is that on the night before a flight to a destination in Thailand, the airline secretly drops “leftover” seats onto the market at break-even price so that carry a maximum capacity aircraft to Thailand. That is logically impossible, especially in the peak season, and even if there are a few last-minute Thailand flights, the competition for them is so intense that the seats get sold out in a matter of minutes. We can keep an eye on last minute cancellations but, it is best to organise your trip and grab cheap seats to Thailand well in advance.
