A good reminder from lost farang about AA's direct flights starting up soon. The first one (unfortunately) is the 3rd Dec (1330 departure time) and selling for only US$40 each.

As well as the option to use Air asia as two individual legs through Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok, i.e. CNX-BKK and BKK-HKT, another good cheap option is Nokair.

A 1045 departure has you at DM Airport in Bangkok at 1150.

Then a 1335 departure from DM has you in Phuket at 1455.

First leg @ US$55, and the second leg @ US$45.

You would have to book and pay online to secure that rate I'd imagine;

That's my luck, AA starts on Dec 3rd I wish they would start 2 days sooner

Thank you for the info on the low cost carriers, it's useful reminder to check the fine print, too.

appreciate your answers!
