    What did the Air Asia flight attendant have to say about it?

    There is a bit of a dip halfway down runway 3E but if you adjust your takeoff speed in anticipation, nobody in First Class notices. Those at the tail end however wish they had fastened their seat belt as advised.

    thank you Wilsonandson for your 2013 Bangkok Post article looks like the 2013 fixes have lasted just 5 years!

    Suvarnabhumi moves to patch up potholes

    'Sinking' taxi lanes set for major repair work


    Published: 29/05/2013 at 12:00 AM

    The Aircraft we flew on was Malaysian Airlines flight 783, departed BKK 1710 on Monday 5th March scheduled service to KL. While I assumed the nose wheel was involved, it may have been an outboard undercarriage that got bogged, as the Captain's on-board announcement did not detail which undercarriage had been involved.
    it is sad there are now some many dick heads on this forum!

    Suvarnabhumi moves to patch up potholes

    'Sinking' taxi lanes set for major repair work




    Suvarnabhumi airport is set to begin nearly four months of major repair work from next month to reinforce potholed taxi lanes and aprons.


    Holes and cracks are clearly visible in the surface of a taxi lane at Suvarnabhumi International Airport. Airports of Thailand Pcl is planning to carry out large-scale repairs next month.

    The plan, which will be forwarded to the Airports of Thailand Pcl (AoT) board today for approval, will be the first large-scale repair work undertaken for aircraft parking areas and taxi lanes since the airport began operations in 2006, AoT acting president Pongsak Semson said. The AoT, which oversees the airport, carries out regular maintenance of these areas, but the work is generally only a short-term fix, he said.

    The planned repairs, which will take 110 days, follow an inspection of aircraft taxi lanes and aprons on Sunday which discovered several holes and cracks in the asphalt surface. Most of the damage has been caused by surface sinkage.

    Areas deemed in need of serious attention are located near the heavily utilised C, D and E concourses on the eastern side of the airport, the Airline Operators Committee (AOC) said.
    The committee has monitored the surface conditions since January.
    It called on the AoT to undertake large-scale repair work to ensure safety for all aircraft.
    "The biggest concern for airlines is FOD, or foreign object debris, which can be left on a deteriorated surface," AOC chairwoman Marisa Pongpattanapun said.

    "If this debris gets into plane engines, it can become dangerous."
    Ms Marisa urged AoT chairman Sita Divari to come up with an immediate solution to the problem.
    Suvarnabhumi airport director Rawewan Netrakavesna admitted parts of the asphalt surface are in poor condition as a result of heavy usage and exposure to sunlight.

    The AoT plans to close several taxi lane and apron areas while the repairs are being carried out.
    At least seven areas will be the main targets for the 110-day repair work, Ms Rawewan said.
    Airlines will be informed of repair schedules and which zones will be closed in advance to avoid flight delays, she added.

    The AoT is also considering changing the current asphalt surface to a concrete one to slow the rate of deterioration, Ms Rawewan said. The change would require the AoT to conduct a feasibility study and carefully plan its budget because concrete is significantly more expensive than asphalt, an AoT source said. The AoT would need to decide whether to make a total switch to concrete, or change only certain parts of the surface, the source added.

    Suvarnabhumi airport reinforced its 1.6-km east runway between June 11 and July 31 last year.

    Don't know why they bother, the potholes haven't yet killed even one planeload.

    Probably MH bullshit. They come up with all sorts of excuses. Probably had too much cargo on board.

    Still no mention on PPRUNE.

    It's safe but their on time performance is shit in my experience, as is their ability to get a suitcase from one plane to another even when there is ample time.

    I'm pretty sure that is having a detrimental effect on their average.

    ....or not.

    Easier to suggest that MAS isn't struggling, per your argument, as much as some major players whom don't get a mention nor challenging reprimand that might be deserving.

    It's likely the wheel sank into a weak part of the runway that gave way beneath it.

    Of more concern to me is that this weedy plane didn't have enough 'spunk' to drive out of the runway depression on it's own.

    Just rock the plane back and forwards until you get enough momentum to get out of the hole.

    Hasn't the pilot ever got his car stuck in mud?

    As it still appears that any such international airport/airline regulatory governing bodies are oblivious to the ongoing problems at Swampy regarding broad safety issues....

    Do the Thais sweep the runways after every plane leaves like some militaries? If not the Chinese tyre supplier could be the culprit, probably sanctions are already drafted awaiting some signatures.

    Not the best idea when you're dealing with undercarriage not designed to cope with potholes, a multi million dollar aircraft, and hundreds of lives.

    It's also possible that he missed the taxiway and put it on the grass.

    A few of our muslim friends have done that over the years...

    The aircraft was being moved by a maintenance crew, who taxied using only the no.1 and no.4 engines, apparently not realizing that the aircraft's braking system is powered by hydraulic pumps powered by engines no.2 and no.3.
