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.

The perfect sleep mask

I love this sleep mask. I left my last one on an overnight ferry and couldn't wait to buy a replacement. They are soft, comfortable and a real aid to sleep. Well worth the money.

Mmm and wow

Lovely sleep/eye mask. So much better than others I have tried.

The adjuster is comfortable too, which I wasn’t sure of just from seeing the pictures.

Would recommend

My Masters of Mayfair sleep mask is an staple that has changed the way of shutting-off my eyes for the rest of my life!
I feel rejuvenated and well-rested after busies days :)

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