    PBair

    Whats happened to PBair. Is it still in service?

    The website says all flights are suspended until further notice. Does anyone know of any other airlines that fly to Roi et or Burriram, as i`ll be heading that way in January.

    Looks like I might end up getting the train. I doubt I could manage another trip on the bus. Brings me out in a cold sweat thinking about it.

    Trains will probably be suspended once you buy a ticket.

    A good excuse not to visit the in-laws in Roi-Et when we come out, can spend more time in Bangkok instead, thanks Astasinim.

    Did a Google and it found this on TV .

    Singha beer baron closes operations at PB Air after 19 years

    PB Air has closed its operations for good after 19 years in existence and accumulated losses of some 2 billion baht.

    The full article can be viewed on the newspapers website that we are not allowed to mention on this forum.

    Seems a very strict forum!

    At your service. Let me know your flight plans and I will pick you up in KK. Go to KK often to pick up some food items I can't get here in Roiet so no bother for me to fit into my busy schedule.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    Thanks for that. Khon kaen it is then. Should be only a couple hours drive to Suwannaphum. Never been to Khon kaen before, so it might be worth a stop over. Its looks an ok place judging by Props report.

    Next problem is car hire, as I know no where in Khon kaen. All the links ive come accross are dead. Thanks for the offer Norton, but I need to be mobile when up in the moo bahn, otherwise im at the mercy of unreliable locals, and end up becoming mrsmiggins within a few days.
    I aint superstitious, but I know when somethings wrong

    Looks like Nok Air to Buriram might be a better choice. If you do decide to fly to KK car rentals are available at the airport.

    Thanks for all the replies.

    Dave. Just looked at Nok air`s website and their return schedule doesnt go beyond 4th Feb, so cant book return leg. No big deal, I`ll just just wait until nearer the time. Its not like there'll be a mad rush for seats is it.

    Only airline that served our metropolis was PB Air. As you can see, they have gone out of biz. Khonkaen is the nearest airport now.

    Thai Air flights. Three a day, about 3,700 baht return.
