I sure that will be a great comfort the next time people are stuck in line for 4 hours with a Chinese peeing next to them!.

A Thai newspaper is reporting today that the national police chief has ordered all immigration staff "currently working in service to superiors" to report back to their real jobs within two weeks.

 

Presumably this gives the higher-ups time to hire proper Burmese house servants?

Umm.  Why are you allowing 20 planes to land if you can't process them and, indeed, don't even have the space for them?

Lets do away with the 90 day reports. This should clear up 100,000 immigration officials for airport duty!

 

Brilliant plan.

 

Now how many IOs will be left to do the rest of the work?

Firstly think how many of thse 20 are delayed flights not under the control of Thailand.

 

Secondly you can't really say to the pilots can you please hang around up there for a couple more hours or, just go and land somewhere else.

 

Thirdly if you could, and they would, you then have even more delayed aircraft and passengers due to the knock on effect.

It could be a fuel issue with the planes.

 

But hey, I'm not traffic control. Still, would expect it to be difficult to hold a pattern without fuel..............................:smile:

None of those facilities are readily available before immigration, if I recall. Ergo people peeing on the floor.
No excuse whatsoever for not organizing more immigration staff. The information regarding the number of incoming passengers is readily available. Somebody just has to bloody look!
My GF gets called in on her off time, and kept over all the time in her retail management job. Are the IO exempt from normal employment practices?

There are toilets before immigration. Pissing on the floor is probably a cultural trait.

These clowns are full of excuses, always someone else to blame, they couldnt run a p++s up in a brewery.

Sack a few of the top dogs, that will wake the others up.

Yeah, They will find out that there are vacant positions, that never actually seems to need a higher level of education. Same result!

What I meant was there seem to be way too many scheduled flights for the airport's capacity to handle all the passengers.

Not just the airports land crossings have the same though not quite so bad.

:tongue: Yes, I know what you meant.

 

AFAIK, all the incidents that have happened at these airports have happened due to unscheduled delays on some flights and obviously leading to unscheduled landings causing an increase in passenger processing.

 

Don't get me wrong though, the manning of the immigration desks (or lack of it) and the lack of communication between immigration and AoT is a disgrace and needs to be dealt with. Increasing the number of desks for process isn't going to work unless they are manned IMO.

 

Still, I'm glad Thailand is specific to this problem, and the rest of the world's airports can predict weather/mechanical failures and the like where things like this never happen....................:thumbsup:

It was described as people not wanting to abandon their four hour wait in line to backtrack all the way to the toilets, which are not all that close.
