Indians cancel Thailand holidays

The Indian press is reporting from Kolkata this morning that the Thailand military coup has caused hundreds of Indians to change their travel plans away from Thailand, barely a week before the Pujas festival.
The Indian (airline) Calcutta-Bangkok flight on Wednesday took-off with 36 passengers, instead of the scheduled 51. According to airport sources, the Bangkok-Calcutta was full.
Tourists eyeing their most favoured foreign destination have, over the past 24 hours, decided to give the pleasures of Thailand a miss and head for safer pastures instead, reported the Telegraph of Kolkata.
Travel agents recorded "more than 100 Thailand-linked cancellations" on Wednesday alone, the paper said.
