All of my flights will be short trips - roughly one hour each. I will be traveling with both a backpack and a larger suitcase (20 kg/45 pounds). I'm not so concerned with maximum comfort and luxuries since these will all be short haul flights, but I don't want to be uncomfortable.
And I would like to be able to distinguish between these airlines as best possible. I'm Star Alliance silver which I believe would entitle me to free luggage on Thai Airways but I have yet to confirm this. I'm not sure if there are other extras on these airlines (such as luggage), or if people perceive one to be far better or worse than another, but I would appreciate your advice. Thanks.
