SIXTEEN (count 'em) airlines registered in Thailand have failed safety and related regulatory assessments conducted by the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT), requiring them to suspend operations until they get new Air Operator’s Certificates (AOCs), as authorities enforce stricter rules in accordance with requirements of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).

The ICAO is due to send delegates to inspect Thailand’s new aviation safety regulatory system later this month or in early October, after which the agency is expected to consider lifting its “red flag”, which was imposed in 2015 due to safety concerns.....

Got a friend flying with Turkmenistan Airlines next week :surprised:

The worst airlines for safety: Cubana Airline and Iran Air With 8 fatal accidents and 404 deaths registered out of 320,000 completed flights, Cubana has the worst safety record of any international carrier in the world. Iran Air, with its 5 accidents and 708 deaths out of 970,000 completed flights is not far behind, and was banned by the EU in 2010 because of its poor safety rating. One review on Skytrax, the airline ranking website, reveals that a flight carried by Iran Air even stopped in the middle of the runway for last minute maintenance.
The worst airline for customer service: Turkmenistan Airlines Once described by a passenger as “the worst airline and customer service ever seen,” Turkmenistan Airline has through the years collected the most impressive record of bad reviews. Several comments unveil the general discomfort, uncleanliness, inedible food and obscene delays. That said, it is the so-called “miserable staff” that suffer the worst criticisms, as they’ve been described as everything from rude to incompetent.
The worst airline for delays: Lion Air Specialists in cancelling flights without warning anyone, Lion Air, an Indonesian company, carries a long list of delayed flights. One passenger reviewed that a “flight was delayed for almost 2 hours and no announcements were made.” Another passenger recalls checking-in at the airport and getting at the gate to discover that the flight he had booked 9 months before had been cancelled without any announcement.
The worst airline for entertainment: Air Koryo North Korea’s state-owned and only airline offers dictator-approved entertainment in the form of documentaries about the great leader as well as free copies of ‘Pyongyang Daily.’ Safety instruction includes announcements that highlight how the flights are made possible by the dear leader. Entertainment aside, Air Koryo, with its Soviet-era planes, is the only airline rated with only 1 star on Skytrax, making it the world’s worst airline. Although, along with the recent modernisation of the company’s aircrafts, the reviews have also improved.

Just came back from a trip to Chennai ..... I always thought Manila was the most horrible airport. I guess Chennai outdoes Manila. I dread that I have to go there again :( as the company got me a double entry visa .......

As to worst airlines .... Air China to me. SAS and KLM are pretty awful too.
