Hi BA744 ,
Bangkok Airways (PG)'s a privately owned Airline, flying from BKK to

USM ( Koh Samui ) : Paradise Island! Nice beaches
Sukhothai : A world heritage site

These 2 airports are owned Privately by Bangkok Airways

REP ( Siem Riap ) : The site of Ankor Wat
PNH ( Pnom Pehn ) : Capital city of Cambodia

these are the only 4 destinations BKK Airways fly to from Bangkok , they also however fly to many destinations from Koh Samui

CNX ( ChiangMai )
Sukhothai
HKT ( Phuket )
REP ( Siem Rep )
SIN ( Singapore )

these are for the tourists who would like to combine where they would like to go on holiday!!

They operate a fair fleet of ATR72 and 1 ATR-42 , in November, Asia's first 717 will be flying for Bangkok Airways

Have fun in Thailand, I know you will.. which airline are you taking?

Thanks for the info

I am on the new BA 777 service from LHR on a ID90 ticket

Then planning to work my way south backpacking, bit of flying (hence the query) and a few trains. I plan to get to end up in Singapore.

So here is another question - SIN -> BKK SQ or TG? I wouldn't mind trying SQ to see what all the fuss is about!

Hi BA744

Last March i was in Thailand and Cambodia and i flew with PG.

I liked them very much. Good service, littel snack for a 1:20 hrs. flight (BKK-PNH) very attentive FA's. Check in was fine. And there was this damn good looking check in girl....  

btw. they even rejected one full revenue pax who was late after accepting 3 stand by's  

I was allowed a cockpit visit however there is not jumpseat in their ATR72 who are owned by a french lessor and leased to PG.

If you are in PNH, visit their office there, it is so damn cute because it's like a movie, its not far away from the city center near the Capital Hotel/Restaurant
in a very old french style building.

If you are into russian planes and taking the first morning flight BKK-PNH (dep.
08:30) then get your camera ready usually there are some AN12 freigters parked on the tarmac along with one AN24 of Phnom Penh Airways!!!!

have fun / rgds
Amir

If you would like, head down south to Singapore first, then later take Bangkok Airways's ATR72 from Singapore to Koh Samui

Biman flies A310 and A300 to BKK , ask me about othr airlines butthey should be much more interesting than SQ or TG ( not that I'm against them, but since you're flying on these routes? why not save around 3000 baht?)

Hi this is the first message i've posted!  

I am an ex-FA on Bangkok Airways for 4 months , I worked only on domestic routes on BKK - USM route on their ATR72. I must say, PG's a really great airline, flying since 1960s with only 1 fatal crash. On board we only served tuna sandwiches and orange juice ( too bad if you don't like them ) , most flights are either on time or 5-10 minutes delay ( throughout my career ). Samui and Sukhothai airports are very nice, open air terminals and they are capable of recieving passegers from Singapore ( there's flight from Samui to Singapore for around Baht 9000 )

I would, as FA on PBAir, recommend you to fly PB Air 9Q , not to Samui, but to another paradise beach, Krabi onboard our F28. The fare on PB Air's around 2000 baht cheaper for generally similar flights ( same flying time to Samui and Krabi ) We serve meals an fresh fruit juice. We also fly from Krabi to SINGAPORE Perhaps if you fly PB Air, You might get me as your FA

Whichever you've chosen, enjoy your trip in Thailand, and Sawaddee  

PS. http://www.bangkokair.com

am I the only female FA aviation enthusiast here?

Sawaddee!!
Just a matter of interest, does PB Air still lease their planes ( F28 ) to Angel Airlines, I've heard that Angel's returning all their 734s and F28 to go instead for 757 from China Southern and ATR72 from TransAsia Airlines,I figured that you're an FA for PB Air, you should know!

Sawaddee,

this is nice to see more and more females joining airliners.net.

As i said i liked PG a lot when i flew with them last March. I also saw PB Air but i have to admit i didn't know what it is about , sorry  

No, you are not the only female on this board there were others but unfortunately too less.

I hope to pass via BKK in Novembermaybe i can try PB AIR?

First of all, I would like to answer the question from Thai747.

PBAir infact, did wet-lease some of our F28 to Angel Airlines on some routes, but as we are also expanding and adding more destinations ( recently , Krabi - Singapore and Hadyai - Penang ) we can no longer share as much of our aircrafts with Angel, therefore Angel had already stopped their F28 route to Laos ( LPQ ) as they did not have enough aircraft. They are already operating the 757 from China South ( not sure if they had been repainted yet ) and in negotiations with TransAsia of Taiwan for ATR72, I'm not sure about the faith of their 734s ( they are pretty "crappy" anyway   )

To Amir, actually I haven't notice any female enthusiast on this forum at all, wondering where they all are. For as far as I know, there are plenty of female enthusiasts. And go ahead and book to flight on PB Air, perhaps I'll be serving you on that route!!

Sawasdee and G'day

When did PBAir get rid of the Dornier 328s? And why did they do this?

I have checked PB's website but it seems to be down at the moment. Could I possibly ask you to email me privately at email as I had a question for you which you may be able to answer off-forum.

By the way, a friend of mine is on this forum from time-to-time when she has time off from her F/A duties at Emirates.

I am not sure about their Dornier 328s as I have just recently joined PBAir. I do know however that PBAir has been operating since.. i guess 1992 with their D328s only for charter, where the seats can be modified to any style you would like, I am not sure where the plane has gone though..

This Dornier Do328 has been sold to Air Alps/KLM Alps, Austria. It already flew for KLM Alps when it still had its old PB-Air colors. I think there is a picture of it at airliners.net. I don´t know why they sold it, sorry. Would be interested, too.
