There's no hard evidence in this thread on ThaiVisa.com, but it's clear something happened in 2008 (during which time Coke Light was nearly unavailable) that led to this differential.

You could also check Cityjet. They used to be an air france, but changed owners recently. Furthermore, do check all, because depending on dates you want to fly all might be the cheapest.

A substantial number of non-refundable tickets require pre-payment when you make the booking. But you have a 24 hour grace period to change your mind and cancel the booking for a full refund. Depending on the airline in question, when you called in to cancel your booking and the agent looked up your name, both bookings would show (possibly with matching ...
