    Question Bangkok Airport and other ambiguous flight info

    Okay I'm sick of this heat, I'm off to Blighty as I have not seen my family since 2005 and my folks are getting on a bit, anyway - I've got my flight confirmation and a friend of mine who books flights all the time says it departs from Don Muang, yet the gf who has spent years working as a flight attendant is adamant that NO international passenger flights leave from DM.

    Would it be too much to ask these flight booking companies to A: Let the customer know the name of the airport as 'Bangkok Airport' could be the old one or Swampy. B: The departure and arrival terminals... and C: I know I'm being picky here, but it wouldn't take a minute to include the flight duration in hrs.

    I think i'll take a gamble, throw the dice and try Savannapoomy.

    Your flight booking friend is an idiot then.

    BKK Airport is Suwarnabhumi, it inherited the airport code when it opened.

    Don Muang is Don Muang airport, DMK I think, it handles no international flights.

    There is only one terminal at Bangkok Airport.

    C doesn't deserve a response.

    Your are correct with the code. There still are some special charters that still land at DMK but I doubt many TDer's would qualify.

    When I get my booking confirmation it shows me the duration, aircraft type and what meals will be served.

    What airlines are you flying on?

    Maybe they will use DMK if the reds close Sawanapum.

    ^^ But you aren't travelling Air Romania.

    get into the Lions thread man and help teach Loy Toy the error of his ways, it's developing into some nice banter, combined with the fact he's done a Heather Mills.

    One other thing, if there's any empty first class seats - is there anyway I can get a free upgrade?

    I have never in my 34.9 years flown anything other than cattle class - if I lament this fact to the check in woman or flight attendant is there any chance they will take mercy on me and put me somewhere nice?

    What if I tell them I am a TV presenter or ask, "Don't you know who I am??!!" or would it be better just to be really pleasant, enquiring and charming - and who should I target?

    On the odd occasion if the flight is overbooked. The Airline will normally look at the frequent flyer members in cattle class. The ones with the most miles will normally get the bump.

    I am not a frequent flyer of any airline and I have no frequent flyer points, only sincere eyes and charming way with words.

    Yes, possible and your target is a good looking air stewardess.
    Shave your armpits, put on a nice designer t-shirt and offer her a bonk in return for a 1st class seat.
