Last Thursday, Sept 28th, which was the opening day of Bangkok's new airport, my family flew BKK
, and 2 of our 6 checked bags didn't make it home until today. I heard from our family in Bangkok that there were many luggage problems, with delays of bags arriving at the airport, some took as long as 2 hrs to get to the baggage claim. I was wondering if anyone else experienced any luggage problems flying out of Suvarnabhumi?
Looks like the problems are being addressed: http://sg.biz.yahoo.com/060929/1/43qr6.html
In my opionion, the airport is not ready to be open. It is just a shell of an airport. The airconditioner was not working, the directory signs don't make sense, the chairs they chose to use at the gates are horrible uncushioned metal frames. Unbelievable. Though the art and the size are impressive, I wish I would've flown out a day earlier from Don Muang, the old airport, which I'm already missing dearly.
