Review: Thai Airways

Date Travel: 12 December 2008
Sector: Bangkok (BKK) - Kuala Lumpur (KUL)

Royal Thai Airways (TG) took my breath away. I really can say the treatment I get even as Economy class passenger is truly like a royalties.


Very easy and very polite staff. They all very helpful. I was given a seat immediately even when my ticket is a standby ticket. So hassle free. Since they using a big aircraft. I can virtually ask for any seat location. They even do offer me for it. Of course I always love to seat at the window just behind the wing. Thats where all the good view is.

Departure Hall

It was normal like KLIA but very fast. I took the shuttle since the aircraft is located at the other bay not accessible by the terminal. The shuttle is well maintained and look like new. I got the chance to view the apron area better. With big aircraft seen along our journey to the bay.


I love the paint. I really do. The exterior and the interior is so calming. The seat is spacious and the leg rest is very generous. You won't feel cramp at all. Everything look so new and very well maintained. I really can't find any defects in the cabin particularly on my section. This journey is on B777-200.

Cabin Crew

The moment you step in the aircraft you will be greeted by the Cabin Crew. Their multi-colour uniform is so unique I actually felt happy when I see it. Weird. But I guess colour do effect your mood. They very soft spoken and polite to you all the time. The work very efficently and I can say they very good at their duty.

In-flight Entertainment

Since this is consider as a short-houl International sector, all the passanger are given a personal earphone. No movie is shown except the flight information. The good thing about it is you can actually bring home the earphone as it can be used for walkman as well by just a simple pull of the plug. Cool right?


The portion they give is a lot. It does not look like normal Economy Class food to me. I picked rice with fish ball, orange cake, soft bun and prawn salad. The cabin crew will walk up and down every 5 minutes to offer you drink alternately for cold and hot drink. They are very efficient and hard working.

The food is very tasty and with the side dish, I actually felt full after finishing the meal.

Overall Rating

Check-in 4/5
Departure Hall 4/5
Aircraft 4/5
Cabin Crew 5/5
In-flight Entertainment 3/5
Meal 5/5
