Isn't the general demographic who go to Koh Phangan such that they don't care much for the island and its scenery anyway?

Perhaps the runway they build will be too short... :P

I wonder whether the in-flight shopping catalogues for this route will be modified to include all sorts of tablets & ornaments/implements. Perhaps the duty free alcohol will come in buckets! I wonder how the airlines will cope with passengers coming down after the full moon parties.....

' I wonder how the airlines will cope with passengers coming down after the full moon parties.....' - oh, I didn't think of that! Poor flight attendants coping with people coming straight off the full moon party onto the plane.

Good news? No way, it is terrible awful and very, very bad news! Now the destruction begins!

The planes won't have seats, just a floor to sleep on!

If you want to find something positive about the airport, it will bring in hordes of Asian tourists who will follow flag-waving guides to gawk at the people going to the Full Moon Parties just as they now do in Pattaya Walking Street. This should ensure that the party crowd soon becomes disgusted and moves all that binge-drinking elsewhere.

it might be bad news for some, but it is a good news for a guy like me who hates all type of Thailand ferries that almost have ZERO safety measures. e.g. damaged life jackets, overloaded , etc.
