    I'm hearing many conflicting statements about being able to utilize V Australia flights from PHUKET to BRISBANE.
    Their website simply doesn't allow you to book from Thailand. Your initial flight has to be out of Brisbane. A return email from their head office says they can't or don't want to work or do business out of Thailand, so whats their plane doing in Phuket ?? Their PR Manager says no problem just book with a local agent including LTU. Any local agents I've talked to have never heard of V Australia and where do you find LTU in Phuket. A Google search of Thailand shows Berlin. Does this company have a pulse or is it brain dead or simply riding on the charisma of it's founder, Sir Dick..
    Anyone out there with a sensible answer ???
