  1. Thanks for that extra detail EP. It certainly seems stupid to fly civilian and military aircraft from the same airport, especially during a conflict.
  2. Thanks for the clarification. The points in dispute are worrying aspects to this case. The captain was ordered to stop pursuing the iranian gunboats, had he have obeyed that order he would not have been in the position to need to fire on the aircraft. Was he reprimanded for this? The plane was on a commercial flight path heading for Dubai. It was climbing as normal, not descending to attack. They mistook a civilian airliner for a much smaller jet fighter. Were the aircraft recognition systems that enable antiaircraft systems to tell friend from foe and military from civilian aircraft in place at that time? The pilots were on a civilian band communicating with air traffic control, not monitoring military bands, so to claim it ignored warnings was hspurious.
  3. At least they have openly admitted it in only a few days. Which means they may learn from their mistakes. The USA denied they shot down the Iran air flight in 1988. Then they explained it was in international airspace and descending towards the ship that shot it down, when it was in Iranian airspace and climbing. Two other American warships recognized it as a commercial flight. The captain of the ship who shot it down was given a medal for his services during that time. He should have been punished instead. Quite a contrast in handling very similar fuckups.
  4. Be careful Bazle, little wee Hyku will throw his toys out of the cot and put you on block..... now that would be funny...
  5. Fair enough. The rooms were small. When I returned to Pattaya from my trip out east I stayed at Opey de Place on Soi Lengkee. It's a lot smaller and right in the centre of the action. Only a small pool but it was normally empty, always empty recliners and it had trees where you could relax in the shade. No balcony with a view, but you could sit at the front of the hotel, have a coffee while watching the world go by.

    I use Emirates when I can. But its direct from New Zealand to Bangkok with transit in Australia. If there are problems in the Middle East its after Bangkok so not my problem.
  7. I had no problem getting back my deposit as I didnt pay one. The only hassle is they dont have an office. When you arrive at the gate you ring them and someone meets you and takes you to the apartment. When I checked out I just rang the same woman and left the key in the room. Different condos may be managed by different people.
  8. Andy never stayed there, they booked another place whose name eludes me at the moment. I stayed there and had no problems. Lots of Chinese but they ignored me and I ignored them. Except that the young ones crowded out the pool on the 31st floor. No problem with bringing back girls.
  9. This one's for Hyku, pity he wont get to see it as I'm blocked.
  10. I visited the GC several times in August. The guesthouse/bar is a seperate establishment next door if my memory hasn't let me down. MrEgg, that's what surprised me about the price, it's not a flash place to stay.
  11. I looked at it twice before I started the thread. The 4 000 is the price on the front page, that's for a room that sleeps 4. But none are available. But you can get a room that sleeps 2 for 2,000. For a guesthouse without even a swimming pool. I wonder if anyone actual rents at this price. I wouldn't.
  12. I was looking at accommodation in the LK area for next August and one place really stood out Maggie May's guest house........a mere 4,000bt a night. There are only 4 pics all of the bar, none of the rooms. For that price they would have to throw in the girl in the first photo at ni extra cost.
  13. And Rod Stewart has become the oldest Male singer to get a UK number one at 74. The oldest female was Gracie Fields, I think she was in her 90s.
  14. I will be sad to see them go. The A380 is probably the most comfortable plane I've flown on. I only travel economy and the ones I've flown seem to be quieter and have more seat space than the smaller Airbuses and any Boeing.
  15. You are a braver man than I to ride a push bike on a Pattaya road. Hell I often dont feel safe in a car.
