No. Although I have always held a return ticket, I have never been asked for proof either at immigration at the airport or when I wished to extend.

It looks like you are British. You may be asked to show a return ticket when you check in for the outward flight. But as you have a Visa in your passport that is less likely.
I would buy the return ticket but based on being here 90 days. If asked just tell them you can extend the Visa in Thailand or you will be going elsewhere after 2 months but returning to the UK via Bangkok.
I have never been asked on arrival in Thailand to show an onward ticket in over 200 entries.

The airlines are liable if you don't have a return ticket when flying to Thailand, whether or not you get asked however is a crapshoot.

I plan to extend my Visa also and rather than risk any obstacles at the airport I have a throwaway ticket to Ho Chi Minh from Don Muang £20

no need for ticket first

just watch the count...............90 days but only 89 nights.

even if you do not book with them, put your intended dates into netflights.com and it will show the total number of nights involved in any trip

No you don't need to show a return ticket I done exactly the same last summer but when I came through Immigration proof my return ticket was in my safebag in my rucksack was never asked.

 

1 week before my 2 month Visa was up I went to Jomtien Immigration center its easy enough to find off google maps if you cant find it just follow the stream of falangs early in the morning get their early as it can be busy but even when busy I was done and extended within an hour.

Book the same flight as your brother but separetly if you can ring the agent beforehand and tell them you want to book your seats now and book seats at the back! I went with EVA air with my brother last time the plane was half empty!  but they sat me and my bro in the middle together and their was no one in the 8 rows behind all the way to the back im guessing the computer allocates seating from the front to the back anyway after takeoff their was a stampede from the front of the plane for the emptys my bro was quick of the mark and bagged another 3 so we had 3 each hope this of help.

 

I am flying BA on the 22nd and am gonna prebook my seat the day before when I check in online last time I checked only 20 seats of economy have been pre booked time will tell :o 

 

Also get an Airmiles card if your going to be doing these trips frequently and link it to your Agoda account for free airmiles on bookings.

Hi! Can you tell me what the current fee for a 60 day tourist Visa (from UK) is? I have looked at Embassy and Consulate websites but I'm a bit confused whether it's still £30 or more now.

I assume I can get one in person at the London Embassy, but I gather I can't get it until 90 days before my trip. Is that correct?

Its now £0. Usually you have to use within 3 months of it being issued

right now if you go yourself to the london consulate it's free.

2 photos fill in the form, collect next day after 11.

did a drop monday and a pick up tuesday less than 5 mins each time.................usually longer than that.

yes there is a 90 day use by on the Visa...........ie land up to 89 days after the date of issue

As an airline employee who works international flights daily you are absolutely correct. Some agents will ask, some won't. If we ask you will have to provide an onward ticket or the correct documentation.

Immigration is not the problem it is the airline that you need to be concerned about due to the reason given by Jarex. In my experience if you have a Visa in your passport you will be OK, even without an exit flight. I have only ever been asked to show a Visa when I have been returning to Thailand on the return leg of a return ticket. When you are leaving home on a return ticket the person checking you in can see that you have a return flight.

How do you decide when to ask and when not to?

You could purchase a fully refundable ticket, print and then cancel. keep printout in bag and make sure to use a different airline then the one you are arriving with. I know people who have done this.
