Cool report and photos! I just spent some time in Bangkok area with three days/nights in the Grand Inn Come Hotel adjacent to a runway. Of course I saw/photographed probably the entire Smile fleet...good to see the inside of the plane courtesy your trip report. Great photo of DMK as well...didn't get to visit that airport this trip (and I haven't ever been there yet.)
