Flight was on time and landed on time but took a while to disembark. Perhaps due to the storm. Very friendly staff.

would not travel with Lion Air again and will tell friends and family the same. Staff at airport and on line very unhelpful all they could think of was how to make more money.Charged an extra 960 baht per ticket just to change the date when we called back 10 minutes after booking. Also charged 780 baht to change name as I had shortened my first name. very rude about the whole incounter, took nearly 1 hour on the phone to change booking.
