PHUKET: A planeload of Chinese tourists failed to take flight early today, leaving some of the charter passengers unhappy to be stranded on Phuket.

The Jet Asia flight, cancelled at 12.05am, is rescheduled for takeoff at 4pm today to allow for replacement parts to be brought from Bangkok and fitted.

Flight JF816 had 233 passengers and was due to fly to Shenyang.

Pay cheap prices you have to be flexible with delays and cancellations.

What do you expect with 'Made in China'! I have seen brand new Chinese built ships, copied from a template for ships built for a Singapore company in Korea, deteriorate to look like 10 year old vessels after only 2 years in service.

@ Logic

How does a Boeing 767 turn into "Made in China" ? Just because it happens to be carrying Chinese passengers ? What a profoundly illogical statement.

-"Logic- -Made in China"?-What you are ranting about? JET ASIA, is a Thailand based airline with a fleet of US built Boeing 767.
