Having to evacuate a plane on the ground at Bangkok Airport because its overflow valve is leaking fuel, and then having to sit for four hours to finally be allowed back on the plane to retrieve hand luggage, wait for another 45 minutes for the other off loaded luggage usually would not be a good introduction to a hotel. BA had finally arranged hotel accommodation at the Grand Four Wings, being exhausted by that time, I did not want to wait another 40 minutes for the arranged bus to arrive, had one of the staff write the name in Thai and headed for the taxis. Oblivious as to where the taxi was taking me, as both the driver and the dispatcher said they knew the hotel we set of to arrive 35 minutes later at the Four Wings in Sukhumvit, unfortunately not the Grand Four Wings, they then directed the taxi back towards the airport and I arrived 30 minutes later at the Grand Four Wings, at the same time as the buses, but 500 Thai Baht poorer. With all of the other passengers descending onto the reception I thought that it would be hours before I could finally get some rest. But their staff was unflappable, treated everyone with friendliness and respect, and I was in my room 5 minutes later, a brilliant effort. The room was extremely spacious, the bathroom huge with a wonderful shower, and the bed one of the better hotel beds I have slept in. The restaurant handled this sudden influx of guests extremely well, and for an emergency fill up of the hotel they really knew how to handle this situation. Check out that evening to continue with the 27 hour delayed flight was a breeze, and yes, I took the arranged bus back to the airport,
