Closed Bangkok Airport to Re-Open

Bangkok will re-open Don Muang Airport, which was closed last September after the city's new airport opened.  However, the new facility has been plagued with problems since its opening.  To prevent overcrowding at the new airport (yes, overcrowding due to closed gates, which is a result of cracked runways at the brand new airfield), the prime minister is ordered the re-opening of the old airport (an airport which was no prize either).  No word on which airlines will be moving back, but it will be annoying to note that there is no public transportation between the two airports, which are about 20 miles apart.
