"Customers due to travel to/from Bangkok on or before 14 April, on a flights operating as scheduled, can re-book onto a later available flight to/from Bangkok up to 13 May 2009."

That pretty much clears it up.

You won't see any significant problems at the airport. The airport and airport security employees are predominantly "yellow shirts", and would outnumber any "red shirt" contingent. The airport is also too far away from the city for easy "red shirt" access from their strongholds.

I would expect the protests to center around Government offices and officials.

I doubt that there will be any significant danger to foreigners, as neither side wants serious harm to come to the Thai reputation as a "friendly" country to visit.

Thai politics at its finest.

Quoting DLPMMM (Reply 2):

I was there couple weeks ago and absolutely loved it. They seemed to try very hard to attract tourists and repair the damage on reputation caused by the unrests.
Hopefully they will not repeat the airport siege as it was a very unfortunate idea, a true lose-lose situation hurting the economy as a whole (as if the global crisis was not bad enough for the tourism).

Britons travelling to Bangkok should "urgently review their plans" after the Thai government declared a state of emergency, the Foreign Office has said.
