Safe waiting area at Airport

My daughter will be travelling to Bangkok from Perth and the rest of the family from Middle East. Although only a half hour between the 2 flights, but knowing airlines, we are concerned that our daughter may have a bit of a wait for us if we're delayed. Does anyone have suggestions about where she can safely wait for us? Is there any chance she'll be hassled if she 'lingers'? Thanks again in advance guys!

The best thing would be for her to stay on the side with the gates. To do this she just follows the signs for transit passengers, then she can look at the monitors to see when your plane lands, I can't remember if she can meet you at the gate or not but she can try and if not she can go down to customs a few minutes after you've landed and you can meet there and clear it together. The down side with this is that her luggage will be on the conveyor or left next to it until she claims it but it is in a secure area where only other passengers have access.

If she exits on her own right away she will be confronted with allot of people offering transport, hotel etc. but she won't be in any danger or asked to move along.

As you daughter comes out of the customs area tell her to turn left and go through all the meeters and greeters and either go up two floors to the departures area and wait in the KFC area or stay on the arrivals level and wait in the little coffee shop just before the stairs on the left side.

From the small coffee shop she will see you come through the area and can join up with you.

She should be ok if she sits in the coffee area only people who may approach her could be the limo people and all she has to do is say no thank you.

Enjoy your trip

We always wait at the "Meeting Point" as from there, you can buy KFC and drinks nearby, a lot of chairs to sit, and there's only one place called Meeting Point at the Don Muong Airport, between Terminal 1 and 2.
