Hi,

There seems to be an initiative to start flights from Sweden to Bangkok. The airline operating is to be named MyAir. The airlines website is at http://www.myair.nu

There seems to be some sort of relation with the flights PBair once wanted to started. PBair is mentioned on the site of Myair.

Interesting enough, on the official website of PBair, http://www.pbair.com a story can be read which inticates that someone in Sweden stole a lot of money with this fake operation of flights from Sweden to Thailand.

On http://www.pbaircustomer.com/ postings can be read about this issue. Those are in Swedish and I cannot read this.

My questions are:
Can someone tell me the info on the pbaircustomer site. ?
Does someone have background info on this?

regards,
Marcel

Justplanes announced details including routes and schedules so I would be very surprised if they're fake... However I would like to know more about them... so far justplanes was the first I had seen about them...

With all respect to Justplanes but something listed on Justplanes does not need to be true or come true! The previous flights from Sweden to Thailand were also announced on justplanes (and on my site) but never started. See the site of pbair.com for details.

So a strong scepticism is appropiate here.

There are a lot of fake airlines with websites setup as a joke.

regards,
Marcel

You are right Marcel. Just because it is on Justplanes doesn't make it true.

Just have a look at http://www.justplanes.com/AirlineHist.html

They list on July 16, that Pyc (Russair) ceased operations. I know for a fact that this is NOT true, as they have just merged with Abakan Avia; a fact which was told to me by one of the marketing people at Abakan Avia only approx a week ago.

Having said that, the lack of information on the MyAir site would make one wonder if this has any connection to PB Air International (not related to PB Air of Thailand)

Hi,

There must be some connection with PB Air International LTD. And this is *NOT* the Thai airline called PB Air, but a travel agency with a legal base on the Isle of Man.

See the news release on ww.pbair.com

Any Swedish member can help to translate the info on this airline?

regards,
Marcel

Jb: thanks for the info

Still, an advertisement does not prove much, just as a website doesn not prove much.

Anyone with more info on this. Can someone translate what is on http://www.pbaircustomer.com/

Basicly it says something like "This site is for us who have not yet got money back from PBair Thailand, so that we can make contact."
There is also a link to a forum with 465 replies. At the bottom there is telephone number and an adress to PBair.

Hope this helps  Smile
