Bangkok - Saigon On Air France A340

A good day! I just found a third trip report buried deep in my laptop that I hadn't got around to posting. I know someone put up a report on this sector recently, but seeing as I had already written it I thought I'd put it up anyway. Hope you enjoy it. <b>Air France</b> <b>Date:</b> 24 April 2007 <b...

Sydney - Singapore - Bangkok In J And Y (SQ)

I was returning from Australia back to Bangkok and using the return portion of my ticket I bought online for 28,000 THB. ($1000 AUD) with Singapore Airlines. I had some problems with the on-line check in. I couldn't make my booking PNR register correctly, therefore couldn't check in. I knew that the...

Thai's A300s are awful. The cabins are so old and dated - the sooner they replace them the better.

United Airlines have just confirmed that no one attempted to break into the cockpit, but have *not* denied that a note written on a sick bag was left on a seat.

They have also confirmed that the plane is *not* carrying a bomb on board.
