Re: Flight to Thailand bargains

Anyone flown with Jet Airways? They're currently the best deal from LHR to BKK, with 2 hours in Bombay.

Eva is a bit more but is direct, checked skyscanner and there are loads of different prices for the same flight. Are the booking sites all the same or any to be avoided?

Re: Which Magic Box

Kodi boxes need constant updating (wizards and builds), like every two weeks, to keep the streams alive.

There will be shysters on farcebook trying to sell them at inflated prices but they'll only work for a few weeks. Buyer beware.

I think the levels of traffic in Hua Hin today compared to years ago has made anyone that gets behind the wheel more aggressive.
