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.

Amazing product

I have now bought several of these sleepmasks for my own use and for friends. The quality is outstanding, they cut out light completely, and I am convinced that they improve sleep. There might be cheaper ones available, but to my mind these are the best buy on the market. Backed up by friendly and superb customer service from Jamie and Katie, and you have a winning formula!

Best mask ever

High quality mask comes in a prestigious gift box and cloth bag for storage. The lavender smell is wonderful. Got one for my husband for Christmas and one for myself. We have tried many masks. This one is the best.

Sleep saviour

I really love these masks. The fit and quality are great. I suffer from sleep troubles and these really do help.

excellent eye masks.

It’s good to have at least two pairs. They do need washing every now and then. I live in Australia, most of the year the sun gets up at four. I never get up before 8. So they have a given me critical sleep. The sizing is fantastic. I’m 6 foot six, my partner is 5 foot six, we can both wear them.

Effective, luxurious and vegan

Lovely mask which has already helped me to sleep more soundly after just a few nights. The fabric is so soft on my sensitive skin and I love the lavender infusion.
The design is very comfortable and I’m thrilled to find a well made product produced with good quality vegan materials.
