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.

Replacement

Bought this to replace my last masters of Mayfair mask. They are really fantastic I love the lavender scent.

DELICIOUS, RELAXING AROMATHERAPY

My repeat order for NEROLI PILLOW SPRAY arrived rapidly as before, elegantly packaged, along with a refreshing, summery LEMONGRASS SPRAY as suggested by Jamie & Katie. The NEROLI is really sensuous and I don't ever want to run out! Affordable Prices too, despite swanky company name. Cynthia

love this

great eye mask… works a treat and is very well constructed , comes with a handy pouch for storage and all looks very premium…. great product, and excellent customer service …. would highly recommend!

Not a gamechanger but comfortable

The mask is comfortable and soft and I like it even if it hasn't brought any benefits for our sleep.

Lavender mask

Great product in my wife’s op ion the best on the market , lavender is well known to assist sleep and the band is comfortable , the mask itself doesn’t fit too tight or Mark the face
