In the last month have landed at bus gates twice, with cabin crew announcing this a few minutes before landing and the usual reason of no gates to park at. Second time landed at 0420 and would estimate that more than half of the gates were available.

On both occasions bus was available for business class passengers; first time it was used exclusively for business class passengers; second time every man and his dog got aboard with the kind help of the ground staff. As the only farang in business class (two Japanese and the rest Thai) I politely waited.

Anyway my wife and myself were first through the autochannel and luggage was waiting so from getting off the plane to arriving home took about 40 minutes.

There have been a few threads on this topic before with reasons why Thai use bus gates as much as they do.
