The future of Sorajak Kasemsuvan as president of Thai Airways International (THAI) hangs in the balance after his performance was deemed disappointing by the airline's board.

According to Mr Areepong, the number of inbound tourists increased by 20% in the first six months of this year compared with the same period last year.
