Bits fall off planes taking off and landing; doors not closed properly; mechanics fail; planes crash into parked planes and when flying...happens everywhere...so what's the big deal?  

Kurt...no... common sense would tell you the passengers cannot be charged. Also, try looking up the Immigration Act.

Kurt: Close Phuket airport down?
What a ridiculous statement to make. Accidents happen at airports the world over.

How about these 284 Russians?
Immigration wise they left the country.
Are they now charged for overstay?

It reminds me of countless videos showing cars leaving a gas station with the hose still attached.

Director of Phuket International airport said that this incident is not serious?
Wow, than that Phuket airport director has no affinity/ understanding of how such matters are international seen very serious.
It is about time the outside international aero-world starts to focus on that total mess what is called..Phuket International Airport.

It can not much longer go on this way, according international aviation standards.
Phuket Airport should be closed down.

Yeah... easy for Khun Monrudee Gettupan to assert that “we understand that it was not serious."  Yeah, just another country's 777 aircraft and 284 people that were inconvenienced in a major way.  No damage that grounds an aircraft like this is "not serious".  Knowing Thai officials, they will probably push the blame off on a Burmese bag handler and tell Aeroflot that they need to go after him for the damages.  I can see the picture now...Khun Monrudee and Aeroflot Executives standing in front of the damaged aircraft and pointing at a pixilated picture of some Burmese kid.
