Airline reviews

Pros: "Brilliantly safety-conscious crew but very personable."
Cons: "It would been very nice to not have to board a shuttle bus to be taken to the flight in BKK."

Pros: "Crew are efficient and friendly"
Cons: "Portion of food could have been slightly bigger"

Pros: "Good meal"
Cons: "Check in and luggage drop for share code with Thai airways. It is not clear instruction when booking with Thai airways. We lost time with Thai airways but finally need to drop the luggage at Thai smil counter."

Pros: "Lovely people. Lovely service. Good food."

Cons: "Good job"

Cons: "An hour delay for no expressed reason is not acceptable."

Pros: "I'm very justifying for the flight."

Pros: "Airfare was reasonably priced."
Cons: "Delay. This was the third flight in a week that I encountered flight delays of up to 15-20 minutes."

Pros: "love the food"

Cons: "Getting our bags took a long time"

Pros: "Services"
Cons: "Non"

Pros: "Easy to book, travel and get around with."
Cons: "The on board snack isn’t great."

Pros: "Friendly staff overall good experience."
Cons: "Only issue is there is no alchohol on these flights."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "We paid for a thai international flight which includes allowing us to use the lounge. We were told in china that WE was the airline not thai international and we could not use the lounge, had no baggage allowance other than the minimum. We chose TG because it was star alliance and we are permanent lifetime gold members. There is no reason to pay a premium for TG if it is not a TG flight and we cannot use the lounge or have a low baggage limit. The check in staff noted our bags were exactly 20 kgs each and said there would be a charge of USD45 per kilo if we had exceeded that amount. This is ridiculous given that we should have the same as UA or SG."
Cons: "I have already mentioned the false advertising and poor service in china. TG cannot tell its loyal customers it is a TG flight and then charge for TG and then say it is not a TG flight. Nothing works right in China but i hope now that we are in thailand TG will honor its normal benefits to star alliance gold and platinum members. Otherwise, we wont fly TG any more."

Pros: "Our train from Chiang Mai was 2 hrs late. Our taxi driver sped us as fast as he could, but we had only 15 min from check in to the airplane take off. The counter personnel were so helpful in calling the gate for permission to board. We ran across the airport and made it thanks to Thai Smile staff."
Cons: "Vegetarian food option"

Pros: "Boarding was super fast and efficient. For a 1,5 hour flight, we were given food and drinks. Can’t find that in the US."
Cons: "Loved everything"

Pros: "Overall service including f Meals and drinks provided on flight and the ground handling and air crew all excellent."
Cons: "None."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "For a budget friendly airline you can't go wrong with Thai Smile. they were on time, food was provided free, staff was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Flew out of BKK versus other airport in Bangkok. Easier to connect to international flights. Good service and frequent flights"
Cons: "They have sandwiches on the flights but they weren’t the best quality, I didn’t like what they gave out. We had roaches next to us crawling up the wall on our last flight, ended up finding some food Trash under our seat that was missed. not pleasant."

Pros: "Very good"

Pros: "Very nice"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful, boarding was easy, flight was smooth"
Cons: "No entetainment, food just a pretty untasty sandwich"

Pros: "smooth as silk"

Cons: "The flight from BKK-VTE did not allow online check-in and had to check in at the airport. The line to check in had 10 people in front of me which then proceeded to take over 1.5 hours to reach the counter. then was the very last person to get on the flight - the plane then didn’t leave for another 30 minutes. Thai Smile managed to make a 1 hour flight to Vientiane turn into a 4-5 hour journey between arriving early, waiting forever in the counter check in line, then being driven to the plane and actually leaving. Bangkok Airways and Air Asia (don meaung) is the better option for this short journey."

Cons: "I had a fracture in my leg several days prior to my trip so had to cancal all. My thai smile tickets were booked with vayama. They r the only suppliers whom declined my request for free cancaltion or even freeze our tickets."

Pros: "Friendly staff through every step of the way."
Cons: "Vegan food options would be a wonderful addition. Everything else was great!"

Pros: "Love the AirBus 320, the service, to get all the passengers a sandwich in an hour flight is amazing! Luggage delivery is amazingly fast!"
Cons: "Would like to have later flights in the evening so connections to overseas flights at BKK are easier. Otherwise, nothing!"

Cons: "Arrived to BKK international with Turkmen airlines. Found Thai Smile transfer counter in transit zone. Was refused to Thai Smile flight, was explained that they serve only customers which arrived to BKK with Thai airways. Lost my money and had to buy another ecpencieve flight from Malaysia airlines because couldn't stay in transit zone more than 12 hours and couldn't get visa on arrival. Later coldn'd find that stupid transit policy ether on Thai Smile or Kayak. If that policy in place why not publish that BEFORE people spend their money for service not provided? Very unsatisfied"

Pros: "The crew was incredibly friendly, warm and helpful. Excellent service on board the aircraft with comfortable seating. And the meal served was delicious! (I never thought I would say that about food served on an airplane)"
Cons: "Boarding process was a bit slow and cumbersome, but, to be fair, I noticed it wasn't much different than all my other flight experiences in Thailand."

Pros: "Ground and in flight service, food, aircraft"

Pros: "what's not to like. Free checked bag, free food, sandwich and bottle of water, soda and hot coffee and tea at no charge. All of the cheaper budget airlines charge for everything including checked bags, drinks and food. It's only a few baht/ US dollars more than the other airlines but well worth it for what you get in return compared to the other airlines such as Air Asia!"
Cons: "Nothing that I can think of."

Pros: "Awesome service, great staff, amazing trip"

Pros: "Its only a short flight so there's not much time for anything to go wrong but it's good anyway. The staff are always friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Sometimes it can be difficult to hear announcements at the departure gate but apart from that no problem. Obviously there isn't any entertainment so I've left it at 5 stars. There should be a 'not applicable' option on this."

Pros: "Food is good for a short flight. The crew were professional."
Cons: "The check-in process at terrible. No instruction to follow and no one give direction on where to get boarding pass. the line for luggage drop-off was really long without people to give direction."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything was first rate and efficient"
Cons: "Nothjng"

Pros: "New and comfortable plane."
Cons: "Last call came much earlier than described at check in"

Pros: "Our flight was amazingly smooth. We had lunch, which was unexpected, and it was delicious. Flight attendants were very friendly and efficient. 10/10 would recommend."

Pros: "Such a quick flight Bangkok to Phuket, I wouldn't expect food, especially on Thai Smile which I think is the economy version of regular Thai Air, but they had very neat pre packed snack bags with Shu Mai. Efficient staff, always love flying Thai Air."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "No explaining delay before take off and after arrive"

Pros: "I am grateful for small mercies. ... it was on time!"
Cons: "Not being fleeced / ripped off cheated out of money as I check in. The website purposely does not allow payment of bags just so they can get more at airport. ... Staff admitted it was regular complaints and they did not care... Not my sort of pleasurable flight.."

Cons: "Good service"

Pros: "The ground staff service was really poor, the air-cond on-board was warm instead of cold, when arrived Singapore, the body sweaty."
Cons: "The pre-book luggage service and check-in ground staff service in Bangkok airport. It's really disappointed."

Pros: "Professional and very accommodating crew"

Cons: "They had mosquitos entire flight, they could have sprayed bug spray or do something about it"

Pros: "Just expect , what is expected from a low cost carrier."

Pros: "I had very low expectations after reading some reviews for this airline. But I was pleasantly surprised. Staff in Bangkok was nice, paid for bags, everything went smoothly, and the plane was not dumpy at all."
Cons: "nothing, it was a short simple flight."

Cons: "The plane was COLD and no blankets to be found."

Cons: "On time"

Cons: "Thai Lion delays all the times and they never try to compensate it with a bit of refreshments or anything. They took the passengers for granted"

Cons: "Thai Lion will rip you off on checked in luggage if you pay during checking in for your flight. I paid almost $300USD for one suitcase that weighed 15 kilos. When asked, they said I should have paid in advance. I expected to pay for checked in luggage, but $300 bucks is Ridiculous!!"

Cons: "The air conditioner on this flight does jot okay"

Pros: "short flight"
Cons: "the landing"

Pros: "Decent price"

Cons: "There was a large group that seemed like a class trio with over 20 children who were loud and rude the entire flight. Parents and flight attendants did not tell them to calm down or act more polite."

Pros: "Price was great."
Cons: "Charges 300 Baht per kilogram after 7 kg. We ended up switching out all goods that had to be checked and just carried our backpacks on. Was a big hassle."

Pros: "The plane didn’t crash and we made it to our destination"
Cons: "We were squished in like sardines. My neck and back still hurt. They are sticklers about bags. No more than 7 kg (roughly 15lbs). Over all experience not so good."

Pros: "Basic no frills airline. Good baggage allowance"
Cons: "Very poor website"

Cons: "There baggage weights are ridiculous! 40 lbs for economy plus 30 lbs for economy..? Give me a break! Cost me the same amount for my baggage penalty for 5 lbs overweight as my tickets for two! Especially when they tell me to add the extra weight to my carry on... so what's the big deal? Same total baggage weight! I'll never fly with them again!"

Cons: "Flight was delayed 20 minutes. Baggage claim delayed another 30 minutes. Made me miss my connecting flight. Then also made me pay. No accommodation on their part. Terrible business."

Cons: "Very little leg room, no complimentary water or snack."

Pros: "The plane was new"
Cons: "Check-in was a disaster, boarding took for ever, getting the luggage took longer than the flight. English is unknown by ground staff. And the plane times had changed."

Cons: "No immigration documents were passed out on the flight from Singapore to BKK causing a bottleneck on arrival. Only one Thai Lion rep. processing entries and passing out docs. Very slow, jepordizing an onward connecting flight."

Pros: "It was awesome, everything was great...."

Cons: "I was in line for the flight and they closed the gate without notifying me"

Pros: "The flight was cheap."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and the food was unpleasant. Also, there was an hour delay but they never announced a delay, it just happened and not one really mentioned why until right before we were actually about to take off."

Pros: "Exit row seats .."
Cons: "No food, drink or water ... no snacks either ... peanuts cost a few baht, 9 baht per bag at 7/11"

Cons: "There was the least amount of legroom I've ever seen on any other airline, my legs were digging into the seat in front of my when I was sitting perfectly upright. They also didn't serve even water."

Cons: "Extremely little leg room. Also they have sneaky charges for luggage weight. Anything over 15kg and they charge you for every extra kilogram. If you want to check in a second luggage you have to check in 4 hours ahead and you still have to pay a lot of money, and it is based on the weight of your luggage . If you don't check in 4 hours in advance and you have an extra suitcase, they charge you by the kilogram and it is ridiculously expensive. More than he cost of the entire flight! And if your flight has multiple legs, you have to pay for the extra luggage every single leg."

Pros: "Brand new planes"
Cons: "Longest check in ever, even on a Monday afternoon.. you'd better be there long ago.. problem with check in : 1- not enough queues provided, 2- check in personnel is not very efficient, 3- no queuing lines, it's messy lines, 4- operation responsible is just an observer with no operational impact"

Cons: "The flight was a pretty good flight for budget"

Pros: "Depart from Don mung airport on time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Seats are comfortable. The crew was nice."
Cons: "They never check passengers, if the seatbelts are on."

Pros: "1) seats 2) price 3) timing"
Cons: "1) food"

Pros: "Just a normal service. You got what you pay. But Thai loin air better than others low airlines is free load baggage 15kg and free assigned seat"

Pros: "Nice new aircraft"
Cons: "Took far too long to get off plane and what seemed like an eternity for bags to appear"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The overall floght was ok with the crew pretty helpful. However coming in to land the plane swayed sideaays seemingly to be off course but probably due to wind shear. Touching down was one of the hardest I ever experienced with all passengers in shock on the force it kanded"

Pros: "Boarding process and crew are okay."
Cons: "Sat at exit row, great legroom but no reclining. Seat itself was not comfy."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "The price was right and the aircraft are new B737s."
Cons: "The snack provided was a pack of 3 oreos and some water. They had other snacks and meals available for sale."
