    TG's TW's Inbound Outbound

    Just went through the process of orgnaising for Sreeporn to take her first flight into Aus originally alone.

    Patong (Mekong) Beach boy alerted me to G4otce TW flying around the same date.

    So with a bit of last minute shuffling Sureeporn and Noi are now flying together to Melbourne on 16 October.

    Noi has done this before with G4orce, as i said Sureeporn has not, so noi will help Sureeporn with Customs and Immigration.

    I thought we could start a thread so that other BM's can do the same to help our TG's and TW's with the daunting tasks of an international flight and save great delays upon arrival.

    Mods If there is a better place to put this please do or does it deserve a headline thread on the entry level? Many thanks

    Good work mate....
    I don't think Sureeporn will understand what you've actually done for her!, that first flight (international) can be quite daunting with the whole customs immigration factor.... just the whole walking out the door at customs at Tulla will be hassle free, and besides you get to see the big fella!!

    Good work. Was not viable or economical for me to go over and fly back with TG on both her trips here, so I organised a little like booklet with In(de)structions and pictures of Airport terminals, Immi cards filled out etc.. Worked well both times.

    one thing be careful thai airline. Friend she boyfriend buy ticket on internet with credit card. Send to her on email. Thai air stop her and ask to show the card that buy the ticket. She not have and have to buy a new ticket. New policy of stop internet crime.

    Many airlines have this approach. The way to get around it with Thai is to book through a travel agent or web booking agent (eg Zuji). I have found Zuji is cheaper also for Thai.

    The other way is to pay by bank deposit, yet you don't get the benefit of travel insurance that comes with some card payments.

    However, bank deposit is handy as you get two days to pay on Jetstar and Thai, thus can lock in a special price but have two days to decide whether you want the ticket.

    Khup Nong Dao, we do through Jet Star so apart from 8 attempts at on line booking failing and finally telephone booking and then they spell S name wrong... All is fixed today........

    So hopefully all be Ok, Gary and Noi do the same so they will have 2 nik noi Isaan tigers if they mess up ... I would be frightened just from Sureeporn ... Khup
