Bangkok to Saigon airfare

Hi
I am lucky enough to have secured a FF ticket to Bangkok. Now I find I have a few extra days and would like to fly to Saigon.
Most groups suggest buying the ticket when in Bangkok but I am nervous about waiting as I must go on the days I have chosen so as not to ruin my plans. It is a 1 1/2 hour flight and the cheapest airfare I am finding is over $400 per person. How do I find a Thai agent that will purchase the ticket for me? Any suggestions? I would feel more comfortable having the plans pre arranged. I am going in November 05
Many thanks
Mystic

Those flights for June, if you are flying November you may need to leave it a while, by then anyway high cvhance Thai Air Asia will be on the route, but shows that deals are quite easy to get.
