  1. I used to use AA frequently, probably averaging once a month. They were always the cheapest. Not so anymore and have had a few issues with them. Now I only use them to Penang because there's almost no ther choice. Regular trips to Vietnam have almost completely switched to VN Airlines with better service better flight times and luggage included at fares broadly similar to AA. A couple of years ago AA stranded me in HCM overnight by cancelling my flight. Regarding AA ticket prices, every time they're having a sale the fares increase just beforehand so the sale prices are not true. I've fallen for it a couple of times and paid more for a sale ticket than normal price. I mostly ignore their sales. My trips on AA are now 2-3 a year instead of 10-12 a year.
  2. Strange....I paid 60 baht to get mine. Took me an hour to get it and used it all over the place. Only True refused it....but that's typical of True , they don't know their arse from their elbow
  3. As a non Thai, would my will written in English by a Thai lawyer be legal or must it be written in Thai?
  4. I think your assessment is spot on. I've never liked Saigon much but on brief visits more recently the pace of progress is astounding. I'm a big fan of Vietnam for visits but very clear that it's not somewhere I want to live...yet.
  5. "It's a shame for places like this as they give the entire place a bad name!!" Wasn't aware the place had a good to begin with!!
  6. You may well have just struck lucky. There's usually a massive backlog of people from the morning session that take up the afternoon slots
  7. Any bank as long as they can bothered to do the paperwork. The lazy ones will tell you that you need a WP. That's BS...you don't
  8. Bigotry at its xenophobic best
  9. Short answer, DON'T. Long answer, if you need to ask that question....DON'T
  10. Did he try to stop the dual pricing? Wasn't it THIS government that stopped expats using their DL?
  11. If you can't see the point......there's no point....for you. But for those of us who can see the point.......
  12. To those who think it's a waste of time, fine, don't get one. For me it's been useful and happy I got it. Cost me an hour and 20baht plus a few photocopies.
  13. I used mine to get an AIS SIM card. Used it for checking in to hotels and other occasions where ID has been requested. Thais who have never seen one before like it and like the fact you have one. IMO it's already proven useful.
  14. I pass thro both airports regularly. I have never ever seen all desks open. It is without doubt getting worse. Partly because of vast numbers of Chinese tourists totally bewildered and without a clue what they're doing or what they're supposed to do with an immigration form
  15. He's been moved to an inactive motorbike
