Good thing there was no injuries. I think it's really the time Thai government should suspends their license..

Phuket Air (9R) suspended all of their European routes a long time ago. Now they have only domestic service in couple of cities in Thailand. I believe they wet leased their 747s to middle eastern countries.

Thanks. I wasn't sure if all the charges against them had blown over or not. I hadn't heard their name in a while. Who is flying their 742s now?

According to a recent article in the Bangkok Post, Phuket Air will suspend all its scheduled flights and focus on dry/wetleasing contracts.

Whatever. Perhaps I know the person - gives always the preferred greetin g in S.E. Asia - "Hi Folks welcome aborad..." NOT.

Phuket Air is fine apart from the 747 mech problems that have been blown out of the proportion.

The department would revoke the airline's licence if a safety problem emerged, Mr Chaisak said.

The airline suspended all Bangkok-Mae Sot flights yesterday. Passengers who were to fly today should call the airline to check on departure times.

Whatever. I would have paid B 10,000 to fly on their BKK-BFV service on the YS-11. But it's too late now since the sole operational YS11 is gone in Mae Sot.

I know they are on the famous "black list" in Europe, but I don't know which countries this affects exactly!

It's not about AIRBUS. it's not about BOEING. It's all about the beauty of FLYING.

They should be on none. Nothing wrong with 9R. These lists are junk...
