We took a cab from Aonang Orchid Resort to Krabi Airport (KBV). Since we had a group of four and our luggage, we had to take a van, which we negotiated to 600baht (~$17).
Krabi airport is a small but pleasant airport, with an international terminal and a domestic terminal. While waiting at the gate, we saw a Thai Airways plane taxiing:
We paid $49 each to fly Bangkok Airways one-way from Krabi to Bangkok. The flight was full, and I remembered that during our elephant trek we met a couple who had travelled to Ao Nang from Bangkok but decided to go back because of the poor weather. After a quick boarding process, we were on our way to Bangkok!

The view out the window leaving KBV was beautiful:
Our tickets indicated we would be served a “snack”. I was impressed that they served a small meal during the short flight. I didn’t eat much of it though – my stomach was upset from some Thai food I had eaten the night before.
Shortly after the meal service, we started our descent into BKK. We spent about 15 minutes taxiing from the runway to a remote stand, as BKK airport is huge! The exterior design is really fun to look at:

After Phi Phi and Ao Nang, Bangkok was quite a change of pace!
