    Thai Airways going to bangkok

    inside Thai Airways

    Thai Airways is a big aircraft with economic, business and royal 1st class seats. It has international flights going around to other parts of the world. We bought our plane tickets over the counter since we missed our flight via the Cebu Pacific Air, a budget airline. Yup, lessons learned, never miss your flight again.

    The fare’s expensive but I did enjoy the fight since I was able to watch 3 movies and played Bejeweled infinitely through the touch screen monitor mounted at the back of the seat infront of me. The fare from Bangkok to Manila- THB 14,000. Food was served for lunch, I can hardly remember the specifics but I can tell noodles were on the list. Wines were also offered, I thought of having one, just to forget the frustration and depression I’m feeling at that moment…. But I realized alcohol won’t help.

    The Thai Airways' flight attendants were good looking, polite and presentable. What's unique about them was how they dress, unlike the usual flight attendants you see, wearing a common flight attendant's uniform; the flight attendants of the Thai Airways wear their Thai traditional costume and wear silk.

    Leaving on a jetplane (actually from Brisbane)

    We flew to Bangkok from Brisbane on a Thai Airlines B777. The food was good, the cabin crew friendly, and the seats comfortable. The seats are worthy of further explanation – when “reclined”, the entire seat pivoted into a more horizontal position: ie not only did the back go down, but the squab moved forward and up at the front. The result was that it not only became more “bed-like”, but it did not intrude into the space of the passengers behind (though one’s own knee room reduced). We encountered no other seats like these on our trip, but were very impressed.

    Flying from Bangkok to Vienna, we again found ourselves on a B777, this time operated by Austrian Airlines. The cabin service could be described as polite (but more formal than Thai) and the food was average to good. There was a major problem with the seats though – these were the traditional “recline the backrest onto the person behind” variety and at best were uncomfortable and with minimal kneeroom. As soon as we left Bangkok, the two people in front went to full recline and stayed there! I should probably have asked the cabin crew to do something about it, but instead stayed trapped with no room to move (not even space to read a book). It was the most uncomfortable flight of the entire trip and my back complained for over two weeks later!

    Thailand has 3 budget airlines operating out of Bangkok. Makes it easier for you to travel within Thailand and to neighbouring countries.

    The 3 budget airlines are:

    Thailand also has a few boutique airlines:
    BANGKOK AIRWAYS (Monopoly to Koh Samui)
    PB AIR

    The National airlines of Thailand is THAI AIRWAYS.

    The Thai Airways Ticket is Cheaper at the Office

    by gaolei Written Aug 25, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I recently had to go to Bangkok from Shanghai. I compared the internet price on Thai Airways website to the price at their office and found the office price is much lower.

    The price at the office is also discounted off the price shown on the ticket. So, you end up with a high price ticket that you can claim on your expense account.

    Fly to Bangkok on Cathay Pacific,Thai Airways or Singapore Airlines.

    Travel by tuk-tuks(very similar to the autorickshaws of India)...but negotiate in advance and hey-i'd advise ONE trip to satisfy your touristy cravings! and taxi(Beware of the Bangkok traffic!!!)
    Pay that extra TOLL on the expressway into the city from the airport,it'll end up saving you a bundle!

    I flew by Thai Airways. Excellent service & food. Highly recommended. Member of Star Alliance, in other words, accumulate all those miles!!!

    To get to the city center or your hotel from the airport, I highly recommend the Thai Airways Limousine Service (by Mercedes Benz). It's 500 baht (US$11.50) per car per trip & the ride could take more than 1/2 hours depending on where you are heading as well as traffic conditions.

    From europe you have direct flights from all the larger cities. But I would recommend Thai airways. They fly directly to Bangkok from Copenhagen. The service is great, I even enjoyed the food (maybe I was lucky).

    by chngbw Written Sep 7, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Airplane of course!! The journey from SG to BKK is only 1 hour and 55 min. Recommended airlines are Singapore Airlines [SQ] and Thai Airway [TG]. It pays to book your ticket at least 2-3 months ahead of your departure date during peak season of Oct to Dec. We had an extremely difficult time securing seats as we called only a month before!
    My best bet is the BTS train and the Chao Praya Express boat.

    When taking taxi, always ask the driver whether he goes by metre charges before boarding. If so, ensure that the meter is re-set to 35B. If not, take another taxi. There are plenty of them on the streets.
    Try to get taxis in green and yellow in colour as the vehicles are owned by the drivers - therefore they tend to be more careful in driving and the interior is usually cleaner. Others in red and blue are rented by the drivers.

    Tuk Tuk is a a poor choice of transportation especially in mid-day and evenings where passengers are exposed to traffic hazards as well as air and noise pollution. However, u haf never taken a tuk tuk before and would like to try, make sure u bargain to a fraction of the quoted price. Pay drivers EXACTLY for sometimes they refuse to return your change!!

    Tuk-tuk would be good especially during the peak hours as they can wind in and out of the different lanes and get to your destination faster. However if you aren't willing to expose youself to the various exhaust fumes, the taxi would be good. They usually run by meters but are still very cheap and if they don't remember to bargain.. same goes for the tuk tuk fare.

    We flew in on Thai Airways International. They have connections from Australia, Europe and Asia.
    In Bangkok there are plenty of ways to get around. You should use the BTS SkyTrain if possible, it is easy, clean and efficient and the price is fair.
