Is this what its got like now?  I thought visa companies didn't go there?  when I went back in Feb only about 30 people maybe less

They do now. They leave Bangkok on Sunday and Wednesday evenings, so Monday and Thursday mornings are a lot busier than the rest of the week.

Dropping bags at the gate reminds me of going on hotel holiday in Spain to find creeps had dumped stuff on loungers in the best spots to actually use them later in the day....Complete a____oles...

In most countries an unattended bag would be deemed dodgy and remove it..Do it at Savv...

It was the same in Greece. Primarily Germans would wake up at 6 to put their towels on all the sun loungers, thinking they now owned them for the entire day. It was with great joy I threw those towels to the side and used the loungers myself. If you're not there, it's not your place.

It sounds like they need to spread the visa runs over the week so Mon or Thurs aren't as bad

There is a perfectly good solution having been caught in the queue this year I have sought a surrogate for next time a nice old Lothian lady who for a couple of hundred bht will save my place in the queue next time.

And please don't say that's wrong as it happens or did happen at chang mai and Bangkok to my certain knowledge

Boggles my mind to see how farangs subject themselves to humiliation and inconveniences to live and visit a dump called Thailand. I wonder why. What is the lure? But I find the line consists of mostly non-farangs. 

"But I find" so you must submit yourself to the humiliation so you can live in the place you call a dump ?

Not much of a mind then, eh?

Think it's more cost effective to do it twice a week.

Rule of thumb: Don't apply on a Monday or Thursday, when the visa run vans get into town, and in weeks with holidays.

It's only a matter of time until the visa runners start arriving on the quieter days too, i will go somewhere else in the region for a couple of days for my next one.
