We meet Captain Jack, Thailand's happiest immigration officer, and the flying doctor who has his patients in stitches. But not everyone's laughing - Britpacker John escapes death by a whisker, Matt is stranded without a ticket, and Paul can't find his gate after one too many drinks in departures. While the tourist police have fun on their new Segways, will Alicia and Georgia survive Thailand without the Bank of Dad?

[edit] Are You Being Served

We meet Bay, the superstar of VAT refunds, and Dr Geng, the airport doctor with his very own fan club. Competition hots up for the airport's annual awards, but not every customer is satisfied - Britpackers Cosmos and Harry can't get a flight back to London, Ally's stuck in baggage reclaim, and Aussie teenager Will is left high and dry after a night out in Bangkok.

[edit] Lost in Translation

We meet Captain A, the airport's bossiest immigration officer, who fights a one-woman war on queue jumping. A Buddhist monk loses his sister, a Geordie loses his juggling stick and a young mum loses her temper when she's turned away from her flight. A French tourist faces deportation. And is the customs office really haunted?
