If you can get a direct flight to Vancouver then this looks pretty good. Unfortunately for me I have to fly to Toronto then Vancouver with 4 hr layovers in both airports and it costs more. I haven't booked my next flight to BKK yet, so I will give it a good look.

Right now I'm looking at JFK to Hong Kong at 16 hrs with a short hop to BKK and this flight is 16 hrs too. So, maybe.

Toronto is by far the biggest hub in Canada.

With a departure time of 23:00 from Vancouver it will connect well with most US destinations.

It would take my flight to one stop which is really nice. 

Looking to book the first flight on Dec 1st the pricing is not too bad.

Back in the day there was a direct flight from New York to bkk with Thai airways.  Couldn't have been profitable as it was discontinued after a couple of years. I loved it!!!

There was also one from Los Angeles to Bangkok non-stop as well. Never took it, as it was about double the price of a 1 stop. Seemed like a waste of money to avoid a 1 or 2 hour transit.

It's just my opinion.

I took the old LAX-BKK flight once on Thai Air.  I'm OK with 18 hours in the air since I can sleep on planes, but some guys would be pretty miserable being stuck on a plane for that long.

I'll definitely check this out since Hate that Japan or Korea transit. 

There also was supposed to be a direct from LA to Vietnam, which would be cool for a multi- stop trip.

They got rid of this flight right when I started traveling to LOS (first trip was January 2012).

Figures.

Transiting in the US is a nightmare with the extra security and shitty airports so very happy to have this option.

I also took it one time. Hated it.  Wide awake for the final 14 hours of the flight. Miserable even in Prem Econ. I'll gladly take the break in TPE.

With Vancouver being about 1500 km closer to Bangkok than LA-BKK, the flight is not as long.

I'd be more impressed if they had a direct YYZ to BKK flight.

BTW, the news is all about how messed up Air Canada is at the moment with delayed and cancelled flights at YYZ.  How could they possibly know that after 2 years of lockdown people would want to travel?

I took the old LAX-BKK flight once on Thai Air, too. Did it one  time just because it was the longest flight I'd ever taken. Yes, it was a damn long time in the air.

 The Thai stewardesses asked all the Thai's sitting next to each other in the window seats row if they wanted to change aisles so they'd have nobody sitting next to them. There were empty rows for the Thai's, none for the farang. Didn't ask  farang if they'd like more room, to sit without someone next to them. I chalked it up to Thai's  not comfortable speaking English with the farang so why ask them. Will Never fly Thai again anyway.

Hearing about all these 18 hours flight makes me feel kinda glad that my home is only 2 hrs away from Bkk.

 

And yet I haven't been back home since 2019. Sigh

Well more than 10 years ago I was coming to Bkk on Fridays and going back home on Mondays every 2-3 months. Flights were so cheap back then (to and fro 3,000 baht). I would be having breakfast at home and having lunch at Bkk.

I didn't really need to go to Thailand that often since it's so close a lot of Thai ladies were working in my country and so were lovely Indonesians, Filipinas, Vietnamese etc.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
