Another Bangkok Layover Question

    Sorry guys…

    I've been reading through the other questions on this topic, but everything seems to be domestic or in regard to using two different airlines.

    I'm looking to book a flight on Air Asia from HCMC to Phuket. There are a few options. One of them has a 1.5 hour layover. I could assume they wouldn't offer this option if it weren't doable, but I've also had airlines give me a 40 minute layover in Atlanta. If you've been to Atlanta's airport, you'd know how ridiculous that is.

    So is this enough considering I'd have to go through customs and get my Thailand Visa and everything? I'd assume that my bags would be fine and just moved to the next plane. If it weren't for liquid regulations, I could just carry that bag on too.

    Is it enough time? Or should opt for the longer (boring) layover? :)

    It would seem odd that they would offer that knowing that immigration is a must coming from Vietnam. I just want to be sure before I book it and end up running through the airport.

    Are you really sure its BKK/DMK and NOT KUL??Their homebase?
    As they do NOT offer any through connections via BKK-though its via DMK and thats a quiet place. You MUST pass immigr etc there and check in a new, 45 mins for the latest for flite 2. They always tell people to allow at least 3 hrs as its a point2point airline.
    Via KUL they do offer through-ways, these cost extra, but only for some relations.
