The relative of a Thai victim killed in the Lao Airlines plane crash on Oct 16 plans to seek legal advice from the Thai consulate-general in Laos as he demands more compensation from the airline.
Speaking during the cremation of his brother Veekij Busarawuthanusorn at a temple in Kanchanaburi's Tha Maka district on Sunday, Mr Polrit said the airline had only paid US$5,000, or 150,000 baht, in compensation.
There had been no further contact from the airline since, he said.
Mr Polrit said he will approach the Thai consulate-general in Laos to demand more compensation once his brother's funeral rites end.
Veekij was among five Thai passengers on board Lao Airlines flight QV301, which crashed into the Mekong River in Pakse district in southern Laos.
Forty-four passengers and five crew died in the crash, which the airline said was partly caused by bad weather.
