JOHN Connor, the British resident from Cala Bona who has been stranded in protest-hit Thailand said yesterday that he hopes to finally fly out of Phuket this morning.

Connor, who has business and property interests in the popular Thai beach resort, was due to have flown home to Majorca on Monday but he got caught up in the anti-government demonstration which saw all of the main airports closed and tens of thousands of foreign tourists stranded.

But, Connor told the Bulletin by phone yesterday afternoon that Thai Airways appeared to have sorted out a flight for him that takes off at 8am Spanish time this morning. “The only trouble is that they can only drop me off in Frankfurt but my wife's been working round the clock to get me a connecting flight down to Palma and I've told her book the early morning flight for Thursday.
