I spent many years flying all over the place and while I have seen some bad queues in lots of places, Thailand has REALLY bad ones way more regularly than anywhere else I have ever seen.

You've obviously not been to CDG in Paris recently, then. In both of the last couple of years of my having to endure the indignities of that particular dump of an airport I have had to endure chaotic, disorganised and lengthy immigration queues which were far, far worse than anything I've ever experienced at BKK.

Yes, but it's not as if those flights suddenly turned up as a surprise is it? They know what flights are coming in and when, and ought to be capable of providing sufficient immigration staff to deal with these rushes.

so .. knowing busy .. 7 booths unmanned ... ..

Frankly i'm surprised at this Andrew guy who by all account should have known better, what response was he expecting from Thai people other than 'if you don't like it go back home' and 'you are biting the hands that fed you all those years you ungrateful farang'... now Once and for all, Thai people in general do not give a stuff how a foreigner/farang feel or being treated in this country and it's futile to complain or try to make a point of it...

You would have thought he was in the US at a Trump rally ...

They need automated immigration clearance kiosks just like the ones Thai Passport holders use. Thai Passport holders can use the ones at Sydney airport so why can't Australian Passport holders use the ones in Thailand? Special express lines for the Chinese? Next will be special express lines for those rich Indians that are coming soon?

I recently went through a que like that when I came back from the states recently. It's the worst I've ever seen it. It took a full 40 minutes to get through. Is tourism really down?

Why does nobody talk about immigration queues in Dubai? It took me 1.5 hrs to get through. They can't even be bothered to open Fasttrack most of the time.

Not only BKK has queues.

Couldn't get a shag in a brothel. Sorry I forgot there are no brothels in Thailand or prostitutes according to Thai officials.

Bottom line Suvarnabhumi airport has always been one of the top 10 most crowded airports I’ve ever seen in the world since I first started coming here 10 years ago. It has absolutely nothing to do with the issues with the current government situation. Now I’ve been retired here for over 5 years and each day is better than the last I love it here. It’s just another crowded airport in another major world city it’s not some mass government conspiracy almost every country in the world has similar procedures at the airport if not exactly the same procedures, although I do think Suvarnabhumi airport ought to build at least a few new terminals to accommodate the massive amounts of people who come here everyday.
