Thai Airways International
The timeless tradition of gracious Thai hospitality is as much a hallmark of THAI as it is of the kingdom of Thailand itself. When you step onboard a THAI aircraft you will be greeted with a warm Sawasdee (a traditional Thai welcome) just as gentle Thai's would invite you into their home.
Royal First Class
The Royal First Class treatment begins when travellers are met curb-side at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi airport and escorted to a luxurious lounge for effortless check-in.
Once onboard, the luxury continues. Enjoy the privacy of a segregated cabin boasting the latest innovation in luxury - newly installed sleeper seating. Electronically controlled, the newly designed shell seats convert to superbly comfortable beds, with 180 degrees of recline, almost 7 feet of space to stretch out in and fully adjustable leg and foot rests, making them truly state-of-the-art.
In-flight dining and a premium bar service, including Dom Perignon on arrival, is a major highlight of THAI's Royal First Class experience. The exquisite presentation of each meal reflects the skill and experience of THAI's master chefs. With choices for every course, dishes are presented, beautifully garnished, on fine porcelain, in a style more suitable for a classic gourmet restaurant.
Entertainment is also at a premium in Royal First Class. Each seat is equipped with the latest interactive Audio-Video On-Demand (AVOD) entertainment system, which allows you to start, pause, fast forward, or stop any of the hundreds of program choices whenever you like, so the hours just fly by. Plus, there's an in-seat telephone and laptop power point to satisfy all your business needs.
Royal Silk Class
For frequent business travellers, for whom flying is often a major element of their working week, THAI's Royal Silk Class delivers an outstanding option.
Royal Silk Class seats on each 747-400 and A340-600 aircraft include bed lengths of 76 inches, a pitch of 60 inches and 167 degree recline. On the new 777-200ER aircraft the features include a bed length of 70 inches, pitch of 61 inches and 163 degrees of recline.
THAI's master chefs have created innovative menus for Royal Silk Class, which are changed often to create variety for regular business travellers. Meals are served restaurant style, with choices for every course, and always include a premium bar service.
Entertainment options abound in Royal Silk Class, starting at the airport. The lounges at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi airport offer every possible facility for relaxation, refreshment, or business in the wi-fi/ internet connected private meeting rooms and work areas. Then, once onboard your flight, your electrically controlled seat is equipped with telephone, laptop power point and interactive Audio-Video On-Demand (AVOD) system, offering a selection of latest run movies, TV, games, music, documentaries and flight information, ensuring that there is something to entertain everyone.
