    No it doesn’t. The link is on the first website anyway.

    That is odd, I have just copied it again faithfully and pasted it into Chrome and it doesn’t work, it can only be accessed via the first site.

    I checked and transit without a visa in AMS is not a issue but to transit without a visa your checked bags must be through checked from UK departure point to BKK. You must stay in the international transit area.

    That would mean I believe using the same airline or codeshare all the way.

    NATIONAL THAILAND (TH) /RESIDENCE UNITED KINGDOM (GB)
    TRANSIT NETHERLANDS (NL) /DESTINATION THAILAND (TH)
    ALSO CHECK DESTINATION INFORMATION BELOW
    VISA TRANSIT NETHERLANDS (NL)
    ...... NORMAL PASSPORTS ONLY ......
    VISA REQUIRED, EXCEPT FOR FAMILY MEMBERS OF A NATIONAL OF AN
    EEA MEMBER STATE OR SWITZERLAND, WITH A RESIDENCE PERMIT
    ISSUED BY UNITED KINGDOM TO FAMILY MEMBERS OF A UNION CITIZEN,
    FOR A MAXIMUM STAY OF 90 DAYS. THEY MUST TRAVEL WITH OR TRAVEL
    TO JOIN THE UNION CITIZEN.
    TWOV (TRANSIT WITHOUT VISA):
    VISA REQUIRED, EXCEPT FOR PASSENGERS ARRIVING FROM A
    NON-SCHENGEN MEMBER STATE WITH A CONFIRMED ONWARD TICKET FOR
    FLIGHT ON THE SAME AIRCRAFT OR FOR THE FIRST CONNECTING FLIGH
    TO A THIRD COUNTRY WHICH IS NOT A SCHENGEN MEMBER STATE. THEY
    MUST:
    - STAY IN THE INTERNATIONAL TRANSIT AREA OF THE AIRPORT, AND
    - HAVE DOCUMENTS REQUIRED FOR THE NEXT DESTINATION.
    WARNING:
    - PASSENGERS TRANSITING THROUGH TWO AIRPORTS IN THE SCHENGEN
    AREA MUST COMPLY WITH ENTRY REGULATIONS OF THE FIRST

    so no checked bags ,or bags i could collect myself i am fine to do ,the documents would be proof of onward travel for the wife hence no visa required.
    Just the same as me when i went to Thailand for 2 months on no visa i showed the airline tickets to Vietnam so i would not need a visa happy with what i showed them no problems .
    As i write this the day before has come down to £850 each with qatar so the company's are trying to get as much out of us and for that little extra i would plum for this route .just before it was well over £1000

    i am still looking at doing this as its a saving of £400 which will pay for a nice hotel in ko chang ,
    The flights i am looking at are Etihad which are around the £620 mark then the flight from Manchester to Amsterdam 50-100 pound .
    My wife would stay air side while i collect the one bag and check it in to the hull luggage .
    Is this possible ?
    simple things being made hard lol .

    You may be better sending the bag unaccompanied to BKK or simply travel light

    No airline will let you check in 2 people at the check in desk when one of them isn’t present. Maybe she could be checked in at a transfer desk airside. If so, I would get confirmation in writing from both airlines. One to make sure they will let her fly from the UK and the other to confirm she can transfer airside onto the Etihad flight.

    That 400 quid saving could turn out to be an expensive mistake. If it was me I’d just pay the extra for ease and peace of mind

    Most airlines allow online check in 24 hours before travel and you can print off your own boarding cards at home. So there is no reason why Mrs Samsung cannot travel with her boarding cards and just get on the next flight without ever leaving the airside section of the terminal. As long as both the arriving flight and the next flight are in the same terminal there should not be problem. Mr Samsung would enter the country, collect his bag and then check the bag in for the next flight and re join Mrs Samsung airside and everyone will have a good time.

    It does sound a bit too simple, I must be missing something.

    You’re missing the part where you still need to present your passport at the check in desk in person

    I’ve just checked the Ethihad website and they will allow online check in 30 hours before departure and allow the passenger to print off their boarding card.

    If Mrs Samsung is already airside, has no luggage to check in and therefore no reason to go to check in, and the next flight is in the same terminal, I can’t see what the problem would be. The airline ground crew would check Mrs Samsung’s passport against her boarding card as she boards the aircraft as normal.

    Samsung should call the airline to see if they see a problem, but I can’t.

    if it was only me i would have snapped there hand off for this route and price but with the wife and the savings you could all be right the prices from Manchester via middle east do seem to be shifting up and down £970 to £903 a tad more and i play it safe .
    Plus i am now getting earache from the wife about it .
    Any way if you know of any one who is after cheap flights this could be the best option thanks a lot and yes rasg think your right best check with the airlines involved .
