  1. I don't understand why BA don't fly direct from MAN. Surely the demand is there, and they would make a fortune.
  2. Isn't the whole point of retiring to Pattaya being able to monger ? If not I suspect B65,000 wouldn't leave you much disposable income once you've paid your overheads, unless you were happy to live out in the sticks. I don't think I could budget a retirement in Pattaya for less than B100,000 / month, and would probably need to stay in a few nights as well. It's probably been asked before, but is anyone willing to share their monthly costs in order to get a more realistic understanding of required budgets.
  3. My understanding was that you can combine both sources of income eg. if you proved a monthly income of say B30,000 (Amounts to B360,000 / year), then it would only be necessary to keep B800,000 - B360,000 in the bank ie. B440,000. That's what the KeyVisa Retirement Calculator suggests.
  4. It's the non-stop direct aspect that appeals to me. I hate the transit / security checks mid journey. I'd suffer in silence given the chance.
  5. Never seems to happen when leaving LOS. SOD's Law I spose.
  6. Stuart Little (If you're allowed voice overs)
  7. It was tongue in cheek, and following today's game I'm currently trying to get all this egg off my face. Bookies still think we're favorites though, so might be worth a punt on Liverpool before they are odds-on.
  8. Yes, MCFC have to wait until Jan 3rd, when we will claim our rightful place at the top by beating the scousers. We would have done it at Anfield if anyone other than Mahrez had taken the penalty we missed (maybe not let Stirling take a penalty as well)
  9. 'This is one of the many reasons why Indian hotels are on surge' Is it also because they let you share one meal among 10 people, the same way you like your drinks and ladies !
  10. I always read the Skytrax reviews before booking with an airline I've never flown with; https://www.airlinequality.com/review-pages/a-z-airline-reviews/
  11. Probably aimed at passengers who want to visit European destinations via the Emirates UK stops. I just did a similar trip the other way when I traveled with Emirates to Chiang Mai from Manchester.. Flew Emirates to BKK, then connection to Chiang Mai with Bangkok Air. All codeshare, and bags straight through.
  12. Don't see the point. Why not join the Emirates flight in the UK, you're always going to end up in Dubai regardless.
  13. Don't forget all the European Airlines as well, that offer direct services to BKK from their home hubs (Lufthansa, AF, SAS, Finnair etc). In fact the SAS service uses codeshare with Thai resulting in a direct flight with Thai (Copenhagen to BKK). Used it once, whole journey only about 14.5 hours.
  14. I don't live there, but I think accidental death must occur often with the combination of slippery floors, low balcony walls and alcohol
