a bus from the plane??

is it true that the planes at the new airport dont come to the terminal but you have to take a bus along the tarmac?

Generally not true. I think that some of the low cost carriers need to use a shuttle bus though. Most major airlines arrive at your standard gate.

We went on Air Asia, a LCC, to Bkk in Dec. Arriving, I was surprised we had the use of a terminal bridge. Departing, we had to use a bus shuttle to get to the plane.

Arrived on late last week, had a long taxi ride and parked on hardstand. Bus met the plane and brought us in to the terminal. We were on a major carrier, an airbus from Japan.

The bus dropped us off close to the immigration desk. If we had pulled directly up to the gate we would probably of had a long walk instead. This was a wash time wise, ride the bus or walk a long way to immigration.
