    According to the ABC[Australia] the PAD supporters will have left the two airports by 10am this morning and could be operating normally by midnight tomorrow.Google the Bangkok Post or Nation newspaper as they have upto date informaton.

    Extremely unlikely airports will be operating inside a week from today -- there's vast security and systems checks and a clean-up to be undertaken -- there's no way that will be done in 24 hours.

    I'd get in touch with Etihad and see if they're rerouted your flight into Phuket, but your domestic flight will not be happening. People are saying THAI will refund unused tickets, so you should be able to get your money back, but that won't help in getting to Bangkok.
