The aircraft don't look to be in working order to begin with (engines missing, dirt stains due to long lack of use). Is this level of flood all the way to the terminals where operating aircraft are parked?

The airport was closed on October 25, according to news sources and probably remains closed.

In case they had advance warning about coming flood waters, the airport authorities might have given a time frame to owners of aircraft in airworthy condition to disperse their aircraft to other airfields in Thailand and neighbouring countries.

Here's photo of a Thai Airways Airbus A300 taken at the airport.
