I took Lion Air from Surat Thani (URT) to Don Muang (DMK), Bangkok when I came back from Koh Samui. It is a low cost airline that you can get very cheap ticket if you plan ahead (I bought a ticket 1.5 months before departure date and got it like $15). Good thing is that 10 kg of checked bag...

It was a direct flight from Bangkok to Jakarta and everything was good including the cabin cleanliness, on time boarding, and good quality of staff as well as cabin crews. It is a low cost airline so we cannot expect anything on food and entertainment, except we have paid for them. Surprisingly, they provide free baggage allowance 20 kg per...

We were delayed flying from Surat Thani to Bangkok by 2 hours on Thai Lion, which caused us to miss our connection in Bangkok. We had a 2 hour layover on Bangkok to catch our connection. So, we go to the desk to try and get on another flight - Thai Lion says that we needed to have greater than...

Reaching karni by flight is easy and hence we chose it. The flight was comfortable and totally full. The seats are decent considering it is just an hour's flight. But both the times, the flight was delayed. So try not to book a cab from your hotel. You get taxis quite easily outside the airport.

Easy flight from Krabi to Bangkok with our family of five. Flight was on time. Prepaid for 40 kg extra allowance for baggage at time of booking, which is the most cost effective way, but underestimated how much shopping my daughters did on our trip. Sweet counter agent allowed us to carry on our extra weight by having us take...

Have flown Thai Lion from Bangkok to Singapore a few times as well as domestically in Thailand. Good service for a low cost airline, generous baggage allowance at no extra cost. Check in was fairly easy when we found the right counter.

We booked tickets from Vietnam to Phuket Thailand. When we arrived at the ticketing counter, they told us they are going to send our luggage straight to Phuket (since we had an hour and half layover in Bangkok). Since the plane was running behind for some reason, we had only 45 mins to connect to our other flight. They did...
