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.

Sleepmask

Well made, good size, very comfortable

Great product

Nicely packaged, thoughtfully designed and very comfortable. Arrived promptly.

Amazing value for money

The cost of one of these sleep masks may seem like a considerable initial price to pay, however I have slept with a Masters of Mayfair eye mask every night for two years and now cannot sleep without it! It has worked out about 7p a night and is incredible value for money. I have bought them as presents for several people, who have also reported amazing sleep after using one. I have machine washed mine many times and it is still in perfect working order. Would absolutely recommend.

scents and eyemasks

Exactly as ordered, on time and pleasant to deal with.

BEAUTIFUL CLASSIC

Beautiful, soft, well made eye mask .
Lovely packaging, super quick efficient delivery and ordering - a much appreciated Christmas present.
