Suggested Airlines

Traveling to Thailand from the US is easier than you think.  You either fly out of the West Coast Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, even Toronto... or the East Coast, New York, Washington, Boston, etc.


Now I know what you're thinking... it's a lot longer to get there from New York as it's five hours to the West Coast!   No silly, that's not the direction they fly.  In order to cut flying time where it's almost identical as leaving from the West Coast, they fly the route over the North Pole!  Someone once asked me isn't it to cold to fly over the north pole? I said no the temperature at 35,000 feet is the same anywhere on the planet, So you don't have to worry about it being too cold.


Following is a list of  carriers where you may find some inexpensive flights with links directly to their web sites.


My personal favorites are Cathay Pacific, Korean Air, Singapore Air, Thai Airways, ANA, American Airlines, Delta, Continental, and United.  I usually find I get better deals, better service on Cathay Pacific and Thai Airways.  Thai Airways was the one with nonstop service direct to Bangkok from Los Angeles but that no longer exists. Now you going to make at least one stop.  If it's still too much decision, then just check with any of the travel sites below.
