BKK Airport Dilemma

I don’t understand the huge debate going on why BKK shouldn’t have two airports operating?

Air traffic is going to grow beyond Suvarnabhumi’s capacity anyway. Re-opening Don Maung would only help reaffirm BKK’s commitment in becoming aviation hub. You can compare airports to refrigerators. I have 3 refrigerator in my home and there’s only 4 people who live there, but for some reason they’re always full. The Airport will reach its maximum capacity no matter what.

Most large cities in the world have more than one airport. London 2, and the area (Washington D.C.) I’m from has 3.

I’m sure Thai people are intellectually capable of determining which airport they have to go to for their flight.

    I still think it’s about this custom of saving face, and the fact that the international airport community is laughing at the whole circus show that is Suvarnabhumi.

    Keep the smaller Don Muang airport for internal flights and other low cost airlines (the cost would keep the prices down for those carriers) and make Suvarnabhumi the glitz and glamour portal (ok fix the damn issues first, oh and lets leave out the corruption this time huh?)

    … the only thing i’m worried about is the traffic on the ground… :( anyway having two airports would certianly help.
