No need to cut the jet fuel tax. The tax doesn't have a significant impact upon pricing. 2125 baht roundtrip for DMK-CNX is ridiculously low. Using Thai Lion as an example, Included in the 2125 baht total cost is  Thailand's Passenger Service Charge of 260 baht and Thai Lion's Carrier Imposed Surcharge of 900 baht. 

Jet fuel is reportedly 20 baht a litre (tax incl.) and the aviation fuel tax is  reportedly 4.726 baht per litre. What do these airlines expect? During covid the rate was cut to 0.20 baht per litre.  There is no need to cut the tax. If anything the tax should be increased to help cover the cost of supporting the aviation infrastructure investment needed.

Just try to reduce the wastages in $$$$ in the management of the airlines. Can also reduce the director's fee and remunerations until the airline started making profits. Directors are not really contributing anything to the management. Just sitting there and talking nonsense only most of the time.
