Re: 13 Thais Missing during Caving Expedition

Even if they can't go, I still have a feeling that some of those teams might instead come to Thailand and put on exhibition games or something similar and the boys would be the guests of honor. It wouldn't cost them any more to go to Thailand than it would to bring the boys to them. Nice idea but s...

Re: Skytrax Best Airlines for 2018

Kathmandu's international airport is no great shakes, but far better than the domestic one.

Re: 13 Thais Missing during Caving Expedition

I wonder if Adul could be adopted by Thais. Would that help in gaining Thai citizenship? I still believe the government will make an exception. As i stated earlier, I am certain the boys will not accept the invitations from Manchester United, Benfica and Barcelona unless they can go with their frien...

Re: 13 Thais Missing during Caving Expedition

Forgive me for venting, and I know that this is totally missing the point, but I can't help but be appalled by how much misinformation we've been fed over the past weeks. I don't believe for a minute the world was "fed" a lot of inaccuracies. As in many dangerous situations where those in...

Re: Skytrax Best Airlines for 2018

Least Favourite Airline - If I don't like one the first time I take it, that's it! I don't take it again. Favourite Airport - Singapore's Changi is hard to beat and the new Terminal 4 is said to be stunning. It's also so easy to get to and from the city. Least Favourite Airport - quite a few! I hav...

Re: Skytrax Best Airlines for 2018

Personally, I would have much more interest in what board members here have to say. This is a hard one if only because my own preferences differ depending on long-haul v. short-haul and biz class v. economy class. But here goes – Short-Haul - Economy Cathay Pacific, Hong Kong Airlines, China Airlin...

Re: Skytrax Best Airlines for 2018

An interesting question. We are told that somewhere in the region of 14 million passengers complete the surveys. Although they have been published for 20 years, like firecat69, after around 2.5 million kms flying over the last 20 years, I have never seen a survey form, never been asked my views by a...

Re: 13 Thais Missing during Caving Expedition

Agree 100%. Perhaps we should also add they are a huge credit to their small community. We do not hear enough about life north of Chiang Rai.

Re: 13 Thais Missing during Caving Expedition

The Media Conference with the Boys This is a rough summary of the long and happy media conference held with the boys from the soccer team, Coach Ek and three of the Navy SEALS. As the boys entered, they were wearing bright new Wild Boars T-shorts and there was applause. They first played around wit...

Re: Skytrax Best Airlines for 2018

To qualify for the "best" accolade. Skytrax takes into account almost 2 million votes and a large variety of variables covering all four classes (three for airlines without premium economy) and ground services including lounges. So the fact that SIN comes top overall does not mean that cov...
