Should I fly or not.

Recommended Posts

Firstly I am not a resident of Thailand, just the occasional 2 week millionaire.

Since the outbreak of this virus I have been keeping my fingers firmly on the pulse, I`m due to fly out of Heathrow on Thai on March 22nd but as this whole health crisis as 

unfolded there are more and more alarm bells setting off in my head, 

Granted there have been no reports of farangs being infected but the news channels are full of scary <deleted> now. 

 

I have a non-refundable ticket but moving it to a later date is an option, but that too comes with quite an hefty fee. because I`m not there it`s interesting to get the views from various forums of what it`s actually like over there now, can I assume that Nana and Pattaya are not exactly ghost towns during this incoming pandemic, and can anyone confirm the aircraft are flying with very few empty seats from London?

 

If others are taking their chances I will sure as hell join them.

Cheers.

I’m in Pattaya and there doesn’t seem to be any panic whatsoever. The town is actually quite pleasant with the reduced numbers. As for flying, I’m due to book to go the Phillipines in April but I’m hesitant due to the possibility of Thailand being shut down to foreigners (Although extremely doubtful) if the pandemic breaks out of its apparent containment now and I’m forced to go home to Aus until it blows over. Not ideal when I call Pattaya home

Yearly return to UK due 31 March just keeping an eye on things at moment

if quarantine etc is advised in UK i will try to change flight as whole reason to go back is to socialise

plus i would be staying with my 97 year old dad probably not advisable although hes tough as old boots

I'll be interested to learn what you decide because I'm in a similar boat, decisions decisions.

If you are fit & healthy no reason not to come & enjoy (situation as of today)

Worse scenario is that allow up to 21 days for possible infection or a tightening of the quarantine regulations on your return
