Nothing much wrong with the train itself...clean, didn't have to wait too long at Suvarnabhumi and cheap. Tickets machines are easy to use and give change and each train is security checked prior to boarding at the airport. It's not exactly an express train and can get very crowded. The main problem, as the title suggests, are some of the passengers who never look up from their phones! Be prepared to be bumped, feet trodden on and generally knocked about!
Much better than being ripped off in a taxi and connects with the BTS etc at various stations on its route.

The Airport rail link (ARL) operation system is totally incredibly terribly ineffective! During the rush hour (6.60-9.30am. and 4.00-8.00pm.), you need to wait approximately at least 1 to 1.30 hours to get on the train.

There are only 4 to 5 train left in-use. So it leaves us with an unfortunate reality; the trains come every 20 minutes and even worse , you would not be able to get on the first arriving train anyway and you might have to be waiting for another and another one.

Talking in side the ARL train, there are no over-head room for luggage nor any room under the train seats so you have to leave your luggage blocking the way. It causes difficulties when passengers get-in/out.

Due to a large number of passengers during prime-time, you will have to squeeze into the train with hundred and hundred of people.

I used to witness some foreign passengers missed their flight because of the ARL train malfunction system and I felt so sorry for them.

I recommend avoid riding during the rush hour, or else if you want to experience desperate disappointment the first step of the city center of Bangkok, Thailand. You are welcome!
Or on the way back home, if you want to miss your flight and get a chance to stay longer in Thailand, you are also more than welcome!!!

Bad system, everything got out of order. Poor management , lots of people in rush hour. Wait 3-4 trains before get in a train.
