Our Thai Air Economy Class Flight Review

Because of our wonderful flight we experienced with this airline a few seasons ago, I thought I would share our …

✈ Thai Air Economy Class ✈

experience with you. Our 2 🛫 flights were non-stop to and from the cities of; Hong Kong and Bangkok. Our journey originated in Vancouver, British Columbia 🍁 Canada, first departing from Vancouver with Air Canada.

So, I thought it would be neat to compare the two airlines and our personal flight experience. First, have a quick look at this 📹 Thai Airlines Promotional Video, to get you started! 🙂

Both flights with {Thai Airways} were on one of their beautiful ✈ Boeing 747-400 aircraft. After flying from Vancouver, British Columbia to Hong Kong via 🍁 Air Canada, the service reminded me of the days of old.

Remember when your 💺 economy class flight included; hot meal service, alcoholic beverages, hot towel service and so much more? 
Those were definitely the days! 🙂

Smooth as Silk

True to the Thai thinking and their popular brand of; Fly Thai – Smooth as Silk, all passengers on Thai Airways flights enjoy the renowned service and wonderful Thai hospitality, which has earned a reputation known all over the world.

I for one can attest to that! 🙂

The crew were all very professional and extremely courteous at all times. The service from flight attendants was outstanding!

The aircraft and the economy seating was comfortable and spacious.

All though both are major world class airlines, I thought it would be interesting to give you a comparison of our recent experience flying with both on the same day in; 💺 Economy Class. 💺

Again, this is just my personal review and experience flying with both airlines on the same day and that I thought would be fun to compare! 🙂

Thai Airways – Exceptional Service Like Days of Old

Thai Air International

Flying for the first time with Thai Airlines, really did remind me of what airline travel used to be years ago. All the little extras that were once standard and included in your flight experience, that are no longer with most airlines today.

In order to experience this type of service today, one must travel in either; First Class or Business Class.

Thai Airways 747

The first thing my wife and I noticed when we boarded the aircraft and took our seats in 💺 Economy, was the amount of leg room there was, in comparison to most other major airlines when traveling in this class. 

My wife is over 5’ 10” and her legs did not hit the 💺 seat in front of her. With most others, she would always be cramped, knocking her knees in the seat in front. Hats off to Thai Airlines, for not trying to add extra rows of seating!

There’s no need to search for those …

with this carrier, economy seating is roomy!

With {Thai Air}, you still get all the extras listed above included in your basic fare. What a pleasant surprise to be handed; a free newspaper, hot towels before dinner, free alcohol beverages, meals served hot and fresh and service with a smile! 🙂

Reminded me flights we took when I was young with a 🍁 Canadian Charter Airline called; Wardair, where everything was included in your {Economy} flight!

I would definitely recommend Thai Airways to anyone traveling in Economy Class, the next time your travels have you flying to one of their selected destinations. I am sure you will not be disappointed. I can only imagine what flying in; First and/or Business Class would be like on this airline!

“The tradition of tipping waiters and waitresses arose in coffee houses. Those who wanted good service and priority seating would put money in a tin labeled; “To Insure Prompt Service” – hence, the term Tips came to be.”
