    Thai Vietjet Air

    I see a lot of flights out of BKK with this airline

    I know they are a low cost airline out of Vietnam

    Anyone ever use them in Thailand?

    I'd prefer to pay extra for BKK or Thai but the times are very good for Thai Vietjet

    Just wondering

    Thai Vietjet are excellent and one of the few airlines running out of Swampy so if the schedule fits, use them! We've flown with them several times.

    Bangkok to CM is only about a one hour flight regardless of which airport you leave from. Any of the airlines I have found to be OK, just pick which ever work out for you departure time wise, keeping in mind some charge for luggage and inflight snack and others don't, there are some great deals around at times for all services.

    For a one hour flight it doesn't really matter to me. I could fly that tied to a wing. It's the flights longer than 8 hours that start to get on my nerves, and I don't care how good the meals are or how much booze they serve. I don't mind paying $20 more if I get a better flight time.

    I'll pay hundreds more on an international but has to be in that "sweet spot". It makes a difference at the other end, especilly if you have appointments.

    Bangkokair have just started a 3 day sale. Full service airline (including access to lounge for snacks), fares starting from 990Baht. Did not check the routes etc, though.

    Is Jetabroad the same airline or different? Anyone flown with them? I just booked a flight from Bangkok to Phuket for $60AUD.

    Jetabroad is a booking agent. I came across them recently and noted some pretty poor reviews.

    Ahh cool. Should have checked booking details. It's with Thai.
