Travel Forums Asia Airport closed at Bangkok International Airport - Any advice

As im sure many of you know Suvarnabhumi international airport has been closed and blockaded by anti-government protests.

This is aweful timing. Im schedualed to fly into Bangkok on the 29th at 9PM with JAL, from Narita Airport, on a connecting flight from Vancouver.

Does anyone know (or have any educated guesses) if my flight will be able to fly in on time? I have been checking the news and Bangkok post, so far, it looks like some flights are still coming into the country. But I am at a loss of what to do and feel very powerless.

So the question is, if flights are shut down, will my flight still fly out of Vancouver so I can ride this out in Japan til I can get back on a plane? Or will they not allow me to even board at Vancouver and tell me im pretty much hooped? I dont know what to do, if anyone has any advice I am a bit desperate!

Thanks a lot,

Calvin

I'm afraid nobody, except your airline, can answer these questions. The only thing you can do now is to contact your airline and ask them what arrangement, if any, they have for you if the situation does not improve by 29 November.

As I feared. Thanks a lot Hien, I'll call them and see what may, or may not be, going on.
