Haha. I clicked the "Read the Full Story" link, and the full story is just a couple of lines longer than what is written above!

And the rest doesn't give any additional information like - How much profit? And "Nearly tripling their profits" is compared to which period?!

A quick bit of Googling later I found:
In the fourth quarter, the total revenue was 36,902 million baht or 1 billion USD.

This is 367% higher than the same period last year.

However, the total expenses accumulated to 28,020 million baht or approximately 802 million dollars. 

The airline’s operating profit (EBIT) was recorded at 8,882 million baht or 229 million USD, which is significantly higher than last year of an operating loss of 2,579 million baht.

However, I could not find details so that we can make a comparison with previous/pre-Covid years, which I think would be the most relevant data!

Less money being stolen by senior management equals greater profit. I would also be concerned about how much maintenance is being ignored. I flew on a Thai flight a couple of weeks ago from HK in Business Class and the cabin of the Boeing A350 was extremely shabby and the rest rooms were filthy for the entire flight. I have flown Thai many times and this was the worst state of affairs that I have seen.
