Dispatches from the Front: Thai Airways First Class Review

Today we are flying First Class (or Royal Silk) with Thai Airlines from London to Bangkok. Our journey begins in Heathrow where the comfortable departure lounge fully equipped with private charging stations for electronic devices also provided ample space to work or relax as well as offering complimentary drinks, snacks, magazines and newspapers.

 Upon boarding and being seated, champagne and tropical juices were offered as well as throughout the flight, followed by various gourmet courses of both Thai and Western foods. Each dish was enjoyable, as well as carefully and beautifully presented however there could have been more vegetarian options for the starters and mains, as well as more choice for the dessert as only two different choices were provided.

The flight itself takes just over 11 hours which is rather a long journey, however with the help of the cabin crews usual attentiveness and excellent customer service, as well as the new and upgraded aircrafts, we found the whole experience should be one of enjoyment and luxury. The seats provided in The Royal Silk Class, have a staggered layout, providing privacy and a fully flat recline. There is an interactive touch screen with unlimited channels, wifi, mobile and SMS communications along with an in-seat PC power outlet, all of which are great aid in helping the time pass however most of this flight, for us, was spent asleep.

Flight socks

The flight socks arrived very quickly. A quality product. Like the fact they are not made from nasty synthetic material. Comfortable on and I would certainly recommend

A dream of a sleepmasque

I can't imagine a better sleepmasque. It's so lovely to weare, very soft and dark, with a relaxing smell of lavendel. Thank you.

Purchased for my daughter- she loves it. Soft and comfortable.

Great products husband loves the socks and my son the face mask - thank you - so glad I found you

A touch of luxury for a good night sleep

My first Masters of Mayfair eye mask was a gift and I have worn it every single night for almost three years! It is comfortable, especially with the size, staying in place throughout the night. The fabrics are light and gentle and you do not wake up with lines or marks on your face. The added touch of luxury is having the lavender smell & the spray to enhance a relaxing, I would highly recommend for anyone whom would like to invest in a eye mask for sleeping either for yourself or as a gift. It comes in an elegant pouch too.
They also wash well, returning back to their luxurious look. I’m replacing because the inside silk has become worn, I have been able to replace the inside, so now the lucky owner of too.
