Woman's airport meltdown: Compatriot says: That's a Thai for you!

Recommended Posts

Well done Air Asia but I wish you could enforce this rule more often. I am a "frequent flyer" with you and it is not only Thais I see trying to get oversize and overweight bags into the cabin for free. This is common practice among tourist backpackers travelling to Bangkok (DMK) from other countries where Air Asia do not have their own ground staff and have to rely on local agents (for example Mandalay in Burma). Watching them struggling along the aisle and then trying to force them into overhead lockers is unbelievable. Whilst trying to do this they invariably hold up the boarding queue. I have witnessed incidents like the one in the video on several occasions. I always pay for my 10kg bag to travel in the hold.

From the state of her, the 14kg is largely things to eat to maintain her body weight. Therefore, it needs to be at hand. Obviously.

 

I would have thought the check-in crowd would have recognised a Billy Bunter and helped her out a bit. Or perhaps they reckon she could do with being separated her from her food for a while...?.

 

Since she's obviously a hi-so kwai-so.

Her Doctor has asked the authorities to return her to his Clinic as she has missed  taking her medication!

Darling rules are rules so what bit of 7 Kilo's is the max for hand baggage didn't you understand. Throwing a hissy fit is only going to get you barred from travelling FOREVER! She should have said "Do you know who I am" that could have helped!!

For me, as long as the bag fits in the overhead locker it shouldn’t be an issue. The weight is 14kg whether it’s in the hold or the overhead. It still has to go in the plane.

Weight and its location onboard goes into fuel and flight performance characteristic calculations. If it’s in the overhead the pilot has no data. If it’s under they know where and how much weight is onboard.

How dare they stop her for bringing on 14KG when only 7kg is allowed! Do they not realise she is extremely important? Don't these lowlifes recognise Thai gentry? Those ignorant peasant swine who work for the airline should be flogged within an inch of their lives for embarrassing and belittling a Thai of such high standing in a public place, I hope she makes some heads roll over this disgusting display of common vermin challenging an elite personage. No wonder  Thailand is going to the dogs when the lower classes forget their place and position in the country.

It would never have happened when Sarit was around by Jimminy no, he would have machine gunned these vile peasants on the spot.

It is time to make an example of these dregs and teach the peasant classes just who the master is here in this country, they need a good flogging followed by a public beheading with Yul Brynner and Deborah Kerr in attendance.

I'm afraid you're confusing the words ba ป่า which means forest with the word here ป้า  ba which means aunt. It's a different tone.

It means a pushy middle-aged lady.

I think you are confusing the tones. Asked a native Thai what the guy said and that's what she told me.

All very amusing momentarily, no doubt, and material for acres of idle chit-chat and witty comment. 

But do we really want a future where vicarious, prurient enjoyment of every person's misfortune and degradation, self-inflicted or not, is relayed live to the World? Where is the positive in that?

It refers to a person who is a member of life's higher society caste society club. You see them daily driving around in 99.9% blacked out merks and BM's and they are convinced that life's rules don't apply to them as they are hi-so. The wannabe patrons of the higher society caste society club are those who come with the title of the not quite so higher society high society caste society club. You'll find these people on golf courses, graft beer bars (where all beers come wrapped in brown paper) and walking around the high society shops like Rimping with their underpaid Burmese slave/hombre buying overpriced strawberries at 800thb to the half dozen. Once their friend/slave has pushed their trolley to the till they'll then demand each of their individual items are double bagged, as their purchases are more important than any other walking thing on this earth, even if it is a Wednesday which all of us in the pasentry castes know that Wednesday is a plastic free day. God and the sweet mother earth, please bless the hi so and privileged castes who campaigned and complained about Rimping not giving out plastic and trying to do a little to stop plastic waste. These people are the true martyrs of today's high/highest society, why does anyone even shop at Rimping for any reason other than to have that status symbol that is the bright orange Rimping bag for all to see? The only bag that's more of a status symbol is the one you get if you've been to a London duty free or 'arrods. You have to purchase something at the duty free so you can get a duty free bag, high society people must then use this bag at all times so everyone knows they've been on a plane and that they've been to London.

Are the graft beer bars the ones owned by RTP?

If they did, would my wife end up in the hold?

Do you call her a bag?

It was a play on words. Those with a sense of humour understood it, without having to dissect the joke.

The airport I used to work for would just ask the police to take them for a chat...

which they loved to do, until their flight had departed then they would escort them off the airfield!

What is “Hi-So”?
High Society. It’s the term given to extremely wealthy Thais. These are the Thais that go to anti-aging clinics like Brio Clinic in Bangkok and pay $50k USD for stem cell therapy treatment. Yep, that’s what 1 treatment of stem cell costs at Brio. I know because I had it done there. $50k is chump change to Hi-so folks. Their offspring usually hang out at clubs like Demo and drink beers at Sway in Bangkok where you will see a parking lot loaded with Lambos, Porsches, Ferraris etc... Driving a lowly Mercedes or BMW is consider lo-so by many in hi-so. Hi1so live in a completely different Thailand where the rules of law typically do not apply to them. Anything they want, they can have by paying bribes. Most hi-so folks made all their money through corruption and criminal endeavor generations ago.
