Airline reviews

Cons: "Direct tarmac to plane without bus"

Pros: "Crew was great"

Cons: "The seat was too old for flight service and should be replaced soon as possible and the crew serviced like a robot especially for men. This is my first time for eco class."

Pros: "Check in is easy. Everything went smoothly. Food is like a roll stuffed with chicken and sauce. Really good actually. Kinda like a mini chicken bake from Costco They also have arcade games and a remote"

Pros: "Food is always good on Thai airways flights and flights are always good value for money. Staff were friendly and attentive."

Pros: "Thai airways is always good, they are always one of our carriers of choice"
Cons: "Not sure why but the crew seemed a little grumpy today. In my experience, this is very unusual for Thai airways staff. Food was nice but not quite up to usual standard."

Pros: "Snack was great"

Cons: "I did not take the flight since it was booked with wrong date and u refused to let me changed in24 hours although u did stated before booking that it can be changed without penalty"

Cons: "Ancient plane"

Pros: "Good food. Thoughtful crew"
Cons: "Seat A beside emergency exit had partially blocked legroom. Don't sit here. Choose B or C"

Pros: "They do an amazing and efficient job for a 1 hour flight. Check in was smooth, and actually she made a special effort to get us a good seat. Always customer oriented."

Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Flight was over an hour late"

Cons: "On time departure and arrival."

Pros: "Boarding process has improved (SYD), the crew were friendly and attentive, my special meal (Indian vegetarian for something different) was quite tasty and even the entertainment options were good."
Cons: "Business class seats on the B747 - unless you’re sitting upright, they are one of the most uncomfortable seats I’ve experienced. TG either need to upgrade the seats on the B747 (very unlikely) or put another aircraft type the BKK-SYD-BKK route."

Pros: "Simple, no surprises is a good thing"
Cons: "Nothing, everything was great."

Pros: "Plane was nice."
Cons: "Food was horrible"

Cons: "Excellent service and perfect time."

Pros: "Short flight but full service with flat bed business class, was not expecting that!"

Pros: "Flight was full, but generous seat pitch and efficient crew made the difference!"

Pros: "Very short flight"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The B-class seats are fine."
Cons: "Crew did not offer blankets or earbuds. Dry flight! No beer, wine, or spirits at any price. I was astonished."

Cons: "Super delayed."

Pros: "Friendly staff and crew. Flight went as well as possible over the mountains from BKK to CNX."
Cons: "Took bus from gate to a different gate. Had to walk up three sets of stairs to walk on to a jet bridge that was connected to the main airport. In flight snack would have been better not consumed. No illness, just didn't sit too well."

Pros: "Huge plane that wasn’t full so it was very comfortable. Boarding was quick especially since I’m a Star Alliance Gold member so was one of the first on the plane. Bags also came out first & delivery was very quick. Looking forward to flying Thai again several more times this month & wish I could experience their international service which I’m sure is stellar."
Cons: "Only thing I would mention is alcohol is not served but that’s apparently standard for Thai domestic flights."

Pros: "Quick & efficient boarding but cost cutting has taken the shine off what used to be a quality airline experience."
Cons: "I’m not fussy about food, but the menu today was about as uninspiring as they come. Along with polite but perfunctory service and a seat that is nothing better than premium economy, I don’t know how they can get away with calling their business class product, Business Class!"

Pros: "Value Friendly staff Cleanliness of plane"

Pros: "For such a short 1 hour flight, they managed to feed an A330 plane load of people - pretty impressive feat considering that US carriers don’t even bother to give complimentary hot food on a cross country flight. The color scheme didn’t hurt either. The FA’s were very accommodating and so pleasant."

Pros: "Very nice and friendly staff. We were fed a small meal on a very short flight."
Cons: "Ran an hour behind schedule. We boarded on time and then got delayed waiting for air traffic control. Landed about 40 mins later. Considering it an was an hour flight, a little annoying. We didn’t have another flight to catch or somewhere to be, but it could have been troublesome for others."

Pros: "Nice plan, nice crew, left on time"
Cons: "Please offer a vegetarian option for the snack"

Pros: "Very efficient and attentive service . On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Old aircraft, 747 , seats very comfortable but no flat beds.. Choice of movies but mostly second grade."

Pros: "The seats were fabulous. Roomy and my girlfriend and I were indeed placed in the armrest adjoined style. Flight was quite smooth. For the difference in price I can not fathom why anyone would fly coach on THAI."
