Tight connection in Vienna

Am flying to BKK via Vienna with Austrian airways. It will be my first time with them.

I fly into Vienna and only have 30min to get onto the BKK flight.

Is this doable? I suspect so, as the sold me the ticket.

But what if I miss the flight, what happens?

I had a 40 minute connection and queried it with Austrian London office. They said no problem only need 25 minutes. As a UK passport holder travelling Heathrow to Bangkok only a small portion of the airport is accessible, non Schengen flights.

The reality, I was business class seated in row 3 on an A320 out of Heathrow. Door opened and I was off like a greyhound only to find a gigantic bendy-bus at the foot of the stairs. It was big enough to take all passengers and it waited till the last idle git sauntered off the plane. A short trip and into the building. Within a further 10 minutes I was at the outbound gate, no security checks or x rays required. My luggage also kept up, it was at BKK carousel shortly after I cleared Immigration.

The MCT (minimum connection time) in Vienna is very short actually, I remember reading a recent thread on the TA Air Forum recently about this

Obviously if you have both flights on the same booking, if you miss the 2nd flight, the airline will put you on the next flight with an available seat

 

Hope you booked this direct with the airline & not a 3rd party agent

I think you’ll be fine. My only suggestion would be to take a change of clothes in your carry on bag just in case your luggage doesn’t make the transfer.  It’s happened to me a number of times with short layovers.

    • 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)
