I have heard this thai airline mentioned a few times, apparantly cheaper for flights. However I cannot find any details of this?
Does anyone have any info ?

Fear not people, by the power of google I have managed to find it! Now to work out the savings if they are worth it with the cost of the boat to Ko Samui/Ko Phan Nang!?

Well Bkk to Surat Thani with 12GO is 1850bhat.
BKK to Samui with Bangkok Airways is 2445bhat.
So with the longer ferry from Surat Thani there is not a whole deal in it, so guess just down to personal preferance now. Maybe the longer ferry ride would be nice? But maybe with the Bangkok Airways flights it is only a few hours to wait from my arrivial flight so I could just hang around the airport and save a nights accomodation and transport into town.

After a crash in Phuket that killed 90 people September 16 2007, the certificates were revoked last July for the airline failing to adhere to basic safety standards. In fact, 6 pilots also had their licenses revoked for falsifying their papers and there is evidence presented in US courts that upper management sought to alter log books regarding pilot flight hours.

A US National Traffic Safety Board analysis of the cockpit recorders has reported it that the inexperiened junior pilot was operating the plane, but neither pilot pushed the engines to full throttle after a go around was declared. A dire mistake that may have been caused by the airlines lax emergency response training or ineptness by the pilots themselves. Indeed, the initial decision to land in a monsoon is questionable.
A website and online petition, InvestigateUdom. com ( Udom is CEO of 1-2 Go and Orient Thai airlines) has uncovered these travesties and much much more. I am convinced if not for the efforts of this site maintained by Bonnie Rind, who lost her brother in the crash, 1-2 go would still be operating with all unsafe practices in place
A pro pilot discussion site (, ) has much to say on Phuket Air and Sky Star airlines also.

Fly Thai....and Die

Try Nok Air (owned by Thai Air) for low cost flights in Thailand. Bangkok Air is excellent but not inexpensive.
