Suvarnabhumi greed harms AOT's goals
Traveling through airports is always fun when one is loaded with money; the Hermes, the Louis Vuittons or the various restaurants offer great place to spend one's time and possibly get a place to sit.
Bangkok's celebrated Suvarnabhumi airport, which aspires to be among the world's best, had a bite of reality not too long ago when some tourists complained about the steep price of food there.
The media, including the Bangkok Post, went all out to criticise the extortion of a captive market in the capital's two airports. The social pressure prompted ministers to make visits and declare that both airports had a rat hole oops canteen for those looking for cheaper food.
