  1. Bangkok Airways IATA code PG. Back in the day Johnnie and the late Bernie Cooper got bumped off a PG flight from Hua Hin to Bangkok. Suddenly before embarkation two seats were urgently needed for the ex Aussie ambassador HE and his charming female companion. Bernie said, “Johnnie you know what PG stands for? Eh? It stands for Perhaps GO!” Those were the days.
