I do wonder about how immigration would be at Utapao, it's mainly domestic flights there right now with just a couple coming in from Russia and China.

if they have russia and china flights means they are set with immigration and customs. Maybe not h24, so they might tune the timetable to keep all international flights within the same working shift

Just booked to fly with Thai next month 
London Bkk Auckland Bangkok London ....with stopovers .......970£ thats a  great price 
 
Then tried to book the GF on the Bkk/Auckland/Bkk legs ...have to pay in Baht and its 37000B ....abt 900£....mad
Seems that flights out of Thailand are rather inflated ....cannt really understand the logic , Emirates or Quantas will be much cheaper

the logic is in the demand....

Zero chance they are doing Doha to Utapao.
They currently advertise Krabi and Chiang Mai as a destinations, but the flight is Doha into BKK and then you change for an internal flight provided by Bangkok Airways.
1.5ish hours changing flights @bkk and then an hour drive to Pattaya from Utapao? Might as well just get a taxi from BKK.

coild well be

Just booked Nice-Manila return yesterday for €535 on Qatar. That's cheaper than I recently paid for Nice-Paris return on Air France!

 

This morning I checked my emails and I have won a free upgrade to Business Class on their daily raffle - so Nice-Manila return in Business Class for €535  :)  :)  :)

You probably have the best service experience as you will be almost alone in BC, especially at the second, longest leg.

 

My option to MNL would be fly to IST and get Saudia for 312 euros

New terminal is up and running now. for some strange reason its arrivals at the new terminal and departures at the old one (as of 2 weeks ago). Interesting in that there's no separation between domestic and int'l passengers in the old terminal once you go into the departure lounge. Not sure when they will close the old terminal. Air Asia have a shit load of flights going through there now.

 

Not a lot to do with QA though!

Not at all, they give great service imho  ......plus I do have respect for the stewardesses as they must have to put up with some right plonkers/assholes sometimes on their flights  :)

Duke same here, I'm on QR028 and QTR836 flying 30th September I've had a few changed to times and aircrafts from the original booking, departure from Manchester brought forward twice but all other flights remain as original. However after seeing your post I checked again and my arrival time home at Manchester has been changed, none of the changes are a problem but what's worrying is the fact I discovered the changes before Qatar Airways advised me, it seems they are leaving it to passengers to keep checking and to click on the box confirming you agree to the change to validate the details and print yet another e-ticket. The problem seems to be with the flight departing and arriving Manchester, I guess they are flying a longer route to avoid Saudi airspace.
Have you checked if your aircraft's are the same as booking, mine have been changed 787/777 replaced by A330/A340 if you selected your seat on booking you may need to change them, I haven't seen an A340 for years forgotten Qatar still had them. Looks like all Qatar passengers need to keep checking our flight details.

I have been keeping an eye on Flightradar24 and they are showing the odd 787 on the Man-Doh leg

 

https://www.flightra...ta/flights/qr28

 

The Doh-Bkk legs are showing a lot more A380's towards the end of September

 

https://www.flightra...a/flights/qr836

 

 

I have already chosen my seats on all 4 legs on Qatar's website (manage booking) and they are still showing 787's on QR28 & 27 from Man-Doh and back, QR836 is a A380 & QR837 a 777

 

My Flights are not until November 6th and coming back on the 28th so maybe they will revert back to them   :)
