A large group of tourists left stranded at Suvarnabhimi airport posted pictures of their “trip” to Hokkaido outside the airport police station.
The 61 tourists from Korat were supposed to be enjoying four days in Northern Japan but their group tour leader had disappeared after telling them to go and check-in.
Then the staff at the Thai Airways desk said they had no record of their reservations.
The 61 people are all employees of a company in Nakhon Ratchasima. They booked a tour with a company they had dealt with before.
The tour included transfer from the north eastern gateway town to Bangkok by tour bus.
One of the victims Nathacha told Sanook that when they reached the airport the tour leader told them to check in at the THAI counter and no tickets were needed.
But the staff at the counter were confused as there was no booking. When the group tried to find the tour leader he was nowhere to be seen. Calls to his mobile went unanswered.
So they went to the police. They arrested a helper on the trip who was helping them with their enquiries.
In the meantime the stranded group posed for holiday snaps outside the airport police station….
