The new air port link to the Bangkok Airport have got bad press since it does not fill it purpose. You can not check in down town you have to drag the bags yourself. You can not connect with another BTS or underground you have to take a taxi or walk. The traffic in this area is crazy most of the time during the day. If you are late for the flight you might as well take a taxi and head on the high way.

Bangkok city want to change that by put more buses to the terminal, how about connecting sky trains?
