Bangkok airways

oh and does anyone know what the web freedom ticket means when it says no stop-over or transfers? If we got this ticket from Koh Samui on the way home, presume that we can still get the flight from Bangkok back home?!!!!

Hi,

That means you cannot voluntarily stop in another city along your way..

For example.. You are ticketed from city A to city C, but due to airline schedules, you must make an en-route connection in city B.. the "no stopovers/transfers" means you cannot elect to stop and stay longer than what is necessary for you to make your scheduled connection in City B..

In essence what all the restrictions are tell you is that:

a) you must travel as ticketed- you cannot stop and stay at an enroute city,

b) you can change flights/dates without charge,

c) you may not change your routing (A to B to C cannot be changed to A to B to D)

d) you can not change the passengers name traveling.

Travel Safe,

Hi,

I'd say overall pretty good.. USM is their operational hub with BKK being another base and BKK-USM v.v being their most popular and highest frequency service.. So IF there is a problem there will at least be the possibility for things like using a spare/reserve aircraft or consolidating down...

You don't say when you're traveling and schedules can change, but at present I see two or three later USM-BKK flights that would still get you to BKK by 11:00 which is really the 'deadline' for making an onward non-interlined flight.

The 0600 is a USM origin flight, so both the aircraft and crew start their day in USM, therefore there really is no risk of a late arriving inbound aircraft. Your risks would really be maintenance or weather issues.

Travel Safe,

I've only just seen this thread and would agree that Bangkok Airways are USUALLY pretty good on timings, but not always. In January last year we were due to fly from Koh Samui to Singapore then catch a flight to Melbourne. The flight from Koh Samui was delayed over and over again until it became too late to catch our onward flight. We were instead put onto a flight to Bangkok and then on standby for a Thai Airways flight to Melbourne. We couldn't get on so had to wait for another try 24 hours later. Not prepared to do this we searched online and found Jet Airways flights available from BKK and asked Bangkok Airways to get us tickets. They weren't able to so we had to buy them ourselves. We did get the money back (in cash!) from Bangkok Airways so we weren't out of pocket. But we did end up losing a day in Melbourne, for which we received no compensation.

But all that is just one complaint after many great trips with Bangkok Airways. We'll be flying with them again next January.

Aircraft delays happen all over the world every day for various reasons, sounds to me that they did you very well, I think when you say Jet Airways you in fact must mean Jetstar ( Jet Airways is an Indian Airline ).

Getting your ticket money back in cash ! Wow that is a first, sounds overall that Bangkok Airways did very well indeed.

Sorry, you're right, it was the Australian airline Jetstar - not a patch on Singapore Airlines who we were booked with though. Bangkok Airways did quite well, but only because we kept chasing them. We spent a VERY long time hanging around at the airport in Bangkok waiting for them to tell us what was happening.
