Acting president Usanee Sangsingkeo said in a statement the partial closure of the runway from March 3 to May 5 this year for 60 days would affect aircraft takeoffs and landings during the period.  

She said given the congestion at the international gateway, THAI anticipated some flight delays.

The national carrier has therefore put in place a contingency plan to ensure flight operation readiness with full consideration for safety.

The amount of jet fuel carried on each flight might also be adjusted to suit the conditions, the statement said

Mrs Usanee said the airline also prepared to use an alternate airport if necessary and had set up an operations centre to coordinate and resolve any issues that might arise.

The airline advised its passengers to spare extra time for connecting flights.

Suvarnabhumi airport temporarily crippled?
What is the problem?  Be flexible.
Fall back on more operational use of Don Mueang Airport. Easy, right?
Deviate flights to avoid delays.
60  Days runway repairs are not 'falling out of the air', right?

What is the meaning of the expression: .." Thai airways is fully prepared for the ANTICIPATED delays?
Does that mean, leaning back, airport staff relax in 'operational' arm chair and long distance flight passengers must experience the flight delays?

How about taking actions to avoid delays for international passengers with more use of Don Mueang Airport?

Talks about amount of fuel carried? What nonsense is that?
What has that to do with a crippled runway?
A aircraft Captain is obligated by international aviation regulations to have enough fuel for the flight + a percentage extra for calamities.
Wonder or thai aviation authorities think about incoming flights from Europe/Australia/South Africa when it comes to fuel.
Depart there is with full fuel tanks:  full = full.
