Wish You Were Here – Postcard From Thai Airways

The long-haul back to North America has begun and we only wish we were flying Thai Airways the entire way. The first of our 3 legs of flights in economy was on Thai and it was fantastic! How often can you say you wish a flight took longer, especially when flying cattle class? Not often, right!

Our 5 hour 50 minute flight from Bangkok to Narita (Tokyo) was one of the best economy flights we’ve ever experienced. The crew was superb – efficient, professional, attentive and super-friendly. The butler at Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit took care of confirming our flight reservation for us and ensuring all was according to schedule and he even ordered us seafood meals – they were delicious!

We were even able to catch up on a couple of movies we had been wanting to see and this was so easy to do with the individual entertainment units in the seatback. And… the plane was comfortable and clean – Score!

We’ll definitely book future flights on Thai Airways as often as possible – they are far superior to all the major US and Canadian carriers.

Happy Travels!

Viv and Jill

  1. It’s always nice to have a great flight experience – and I LOVE the individual entertainment units on the chair-backs! No more having to watch what everyone else is on the plane!! I hope all airlines will do this one day!!

    • Totally agree with your comment about the individual entertainment units, Gigi. It should be available on all long-distance flights these days. Nothing worse than a 12-hour flight with the old-style communal units on the plane and no choice as to what you watch.

    • Tonya, if all planes and flights were as nice as this one with Thai Airways, we would definitely fly much more often ๐Ÿ™‚
