Suvarnabhumi International Airport recently opened three exclusive "ASEAN Lanes"
for "ASEAN Nationals" visiting Thailand. This is part of the effort, or rather
the public relations blitz, to prepare the country for the ASEAN Community (AC),
or to be more precise the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) - the noble objective
Thais are crazy about these days. Many ASEAN visitors were bewildered to see
three white banners with black letters reading "ASEAN Nationals", as they had
no idea of their purpose. Some said they looked like airport advertisements.
