stop whinging and get on with it for goodness sake! if you have pain, take painkillers every airport has assistance for people in your situation. grow a pair for goodness sake!

Quite interesting following this thread, so you are wheelchair bound, you are not the only person in the world like that. Stop feeling sorry for yourself, and get on with it. Several members

AirAsia very well done

Thanks for taking the time to tell us about the reality of air travel by wheelchair!  Let us hope it finally quells the ‘preposterous fears’ of our Nordic friend! ??

and none other than myself found the direct flight.

furthermore i havnt been spitting venom but other have,

i wont be flying qatar, if you had been following this thread youd know i found thai airways resume direct flight in october, and i wont be needing help or care,

i just need the wheelchair for the distances in bkk airport,

i have no doubt they will voluntarily push me out of the plane when it land if i cant walk at that stage,

i am not worried i will make it with a direct flight

 

At some point in the future you will make a thread complaining of how Thai Airways took your money for a flight they subsequently cancelled and you have been unable to get a refund. 

 

IF or when that happens you have yourself to blame, you already been warned that under its currently economic and global conditions Thai Airways is an extremely unreliable carrier. Purchasing a ticket with Thai Airways would be extremely foolish and rather stubborn given the information you have been proved in this thread so far. 

 

IF you want to Sweeden with the least amount of trouble, greatest degree of reliability - Fly with Qatar Airways and tell them you require a Wheelchair on departure, on transfer on arrival. 

 

That is not hard to arrange, I don’t know why you are making something so simple, so difficult.

oh yeah: about covid test, if i fly on monday, can i make a test on friday 3 days before ?

 

72 hours before departure... So...

 

IF you take a Covid-19 RT PCR test at Midday on Friday and your flight before Midday on Monday you should be fine. 

 

Alternatively, take the test on a Saturday and give yourself a better window of time. 

 

Test results are provided within 24 hours now.

 

Make sure the test is an Covid-19 RT PCR test (which is usually stipulated by the Airline) and not an Rapid Antigen test (unless thats accepted by the Airline). Don’t make the mistake of taking an Antibody test. 

 

Two places which offer tests (in Bangkok). 

1) Medconsult Asia

2) Thai Travel Clinic (at Mahidol University Hospital for Tropical Diseases)

In 2014, I broke my leg rather badly just before I was due to fly to UK on the cheapest flight i could find, by Jet Airways.  This had a stopover at Mumbai going and Kolkata on the return flight.  I notified the airline that I was unable to walk and would require a wheelchair.When I arrived at Suvarnabhumi Airport, I was met by a guy with a wheelchair who carried my luggage and pushed me everywhere I needed to go until I was seated on the plane.  At Mumbai, I was asked by airline staff to wait until everyone had disembarked and then placed in narrow wheelchair and removed from plane by elevated platform used for loading caego, meals etc. I was then taken to transfer hall by wheelchair avoiding all queues as wheelchair passengers get preference. After my 2 hour wait, a member of staff wheeled me through to the plane where I was boarded first.  At Heathrow, there was a member of staff with a wheelchair to meet me, quickly through baggage collection, and customs to arrivals hall where I was handed over to my son who was there to meet me!  It was an incredibly smooth running operation from beginning to end and easier than being able-bodied.

So my advice to you, rather than waiting until October is contact the airline by e-mail, tell them that you require wheelchir assistance, and they will organise the rest!

thanks richard, you are a helpful man, but i already found direct flights will resume in october, i postpone it until then, its not like i want to freeze, its just that its becoming just too painful to walk at all

 

Be very very careful with Airlines that are not currently flying and claim they will resume flights.

 

Airlines are taking peoples money, not point on flights and holding peoples money for months. Some airlines have been notoriously difficult to get a refund from.

 

Thus: In choosing your flight do not believe what any airline mentions about flights resuming, if an airline is not flying now, they will not be flying in 2-3 months etc if the Covid-19 situation remains the same. These airlines will also cancel flights and blame Covid-19 when its simply because they can’t fill the plane.

 

Any flight I take over the next 6 months will be with airlines which have been flying and have not cancelled flights at the last minute.
