Yes. All those lucky to survive and board their return (escape) flights will be guaranteed safety, retrospectively.!!!

 

The unlucky ones should just refer to the disclaimer...or at least their next of kin can.

"How can the brake jam..." [sic]

Where did it say that was what happened? 

 

"With such high prices can't they afford some decent buses??".

Expensive?  How much do you think the fare was on that bus?

Try reading Odin Norway.

How on earth do you not understand that a "wheel failure" could be caused by a seized wheel bearing, metal fatigue causing cracks around the wheel nuts area, a broken track rod and I'm sure there are other causes.

 

"...it had a puncture of the wheel fell off..."

What on earth do you mean by "a puncture of the wheel fell off" [sic]?

Bearings & track rods are not part of the wheel and cracks around the nuts must be a 1 in 1000,000,000 chance of the wheel coming off unless all of the nuts fail at the same time, highly improbable

I lived on Patong beach 10 years ago.Just went back a few months ago and took my 4 year old to this beach that we used to go for free before.400 for a taxi from Patong beach to this so called bus station one way.Pay for the bus the final few hundred meters,pay to get in  and 500 bth for a big bed on the beach. 180bth for a small beer and a bottle of water.So 2k before you think about what the food cost.Biggest rip of in a long time.Stayed 30 min and went back.Before we could drive all the way down on a scooter.Will never go back there again.

Seems like these days I get easily confused, so please remind me, is this the beach which was deemed to be available for public use, and on which a certain person had built structures, which were ordered to be removed a few years ago by Army and perhaps the Mayor of Patong??

 

If so, it only goes to prove that corruption is alive and well in Patong/Phuket.
