Bangkok Airways use that exact Thai: "บางกอกแอร์เวย์ - Bangkok Airways". Is this not a version of "Bangkok" written in Thai language?

Doing a search on Google brings them up as the 1st result: https://www.google.co.th/search?q=%E...sm=93&ie=UTF-8

Re: [Bangkok].com - Thai

"The etymology of the name Bangkok (บางกอก, pronounced in Thai as [bāːŋ kɔ̀ːk] ( listen)) is unclear. Bang is a Thai word meaning "a village situated on a stream",[9] and the name may have been derived from Bang Ko (บางเกาะ), ko meaning "island", a reference to the area's landscape which was carved by rivers and canals.[6] Another theory suggests that it is shortened from Bang Makok (บางมะกอก), makok being the name of Elaeocarpus hygrophilus, a plant bearing olive-like fruit.[a] This is supported by the fact that Wat Arun, a historic temple in the area, used to be named Wat Makok.[10] Officially, however, the town was known as Thonburi Si Mahasamut (ธนบุรีศรีมหาสมุทร, from Pali and Sanskrit, literally "city of treasures gracing the ocean") or Thonburi, according to Ayutthaya chronicles.[11] Bangkok was likely a colloquial name, albeit one widely adopted by foreign visitors, whose continued use of the name finally resulted in it being officially adopted with the creation of the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration."

What TrafficDomainer said - foreigners probably said it because it was the only Thai word they could even get close to saying and it has stuck

Re: BangkokAirways - they use the your "บางกอก" in their business name, they also use แอร์เวย์, which is the translit of "airways" - so overall, the text you see is just a translit of a English-language business name into Thai.

Since you bring up that google search, didn't you think it was a tad strange that the first three searches for "บางกอก" bring up Bangkok Airways and there is no wiki result in the top 10?

Finally, here are google search results for your "บางกอก", vs different versions of the real Bangkok (i.e. "Krungtheep"):

บางกอก 2,040,000

กรุงเทพ 19,200,000
กรุงเทพฯ 9,800,000
กรุงเทพมหานคร 19,100,000

Hope that helps.
