New Seats for Suvarnabhumi Airport

If you have ever been in the waiting area of the departure lounge at Suvarnabhumi Airport then you will know how uncomfortable those seats are. The grey metal is not only hard but it is also cold to the touch. Whenever I have to fly out, I always wait as long as I can in a restaurant before going to the departure gate. However, after receiving many complaints, the AOT have decided to renovate and upgrade all of the seating in the airport. As you can see from these pictures, they are not only colourful, but they now have cushioned seats and backs. The seats will be replaced in all areas of the airport and the job is expected to be finished by the end of this year.

  1. Next up, bathroom fix? Seriously, we have a beautiful, brand spanking new airport and we got the crappiest bathrooms in all of Asia’s major airports. Even the 1970’s feel of LAX has better bathrooms than ours.

  2. At least the terminal is more colouful with seven different colours. The new seats will cost them 12.7 million baht. The toilets would probably be more expensive as they would have to bulldoze a few of the duty free shops in order to make room for a new rest room. We have seen an improvement but we do still need more.

  3. Yellow seats…

    Sad that you even have those thoughts

  4. I was at Gate E7 on the 25th and there were still the old seats…

    Hey… we are complaining on a high standard. The airport is clean and functional, it’s huge but still you need only short time to reach any gate. I think it’s well organized. If they manage to improve the security I would even feel safe there.

  6. Mafia, like I said in the blog, it is a big job and they are not expecting to be finished until the end of the year.

    Personally, I don’t know why so many people complain about the airport. I much prefer this one to the old airport at Don Muang. It is much more spacious.
