I had THE TIME OF MY
LIFE in Phuket!!! This really rounded out my wonderful first time experience in Thailand! Everyone everywhere were so friendly and so helpful! I cannot get over how many smiles and warmth I had experienced!!!
I think what helped me most, I had printed out a "cheat sheet" for speaking Thai with the correct pronunciations, and practiced at home before flying to Bangkok. The entire experience was beyond perfect and I am in L-O-V-E with Kata Town and Kata Beach!!! I'm so excited to visit again! Also, I really enjoyed the friendly flight attendants of both DL
!!! During this trip, I signed up for ROP
- which is HUGE for me - because I am very loyal to Skyteam. But as they say, "when in Rome," (when in Thailand, fly THAI) and so glad I did!!! I earned 1,000 miles for BKK
&v.v. so I have a long way to go to earn status.
As far as the 744, the flights were near-full on the outbound and completely full on the return. My aim is to fly on A300 next time in Thailand. I have flown so many AF
A320's, I wanted to avoid THAIsmile, but I have to admit, it sounded fun to fly on an airline with "smile" on the plane! If I have the option next trip to Thailand, I want to experience the A300 and 744 again - maybe 777, but I've flown so many 777's so I want to change things up a little. =]
It's very nice to see response from our Thailand-based a.net members!!! I, too will follow you and triple7man and anyone else flying from Thailand because I have become enchanted with all things Thai!!! I really had a wonderful vacation!!!
Thank you and kind regards,
