Our favourite airline. Travelling back to Bangkok from Sydney with them this weekend. Great service, food and wine as well as excellent seating. The in flight entertainmnet depends of the plane they are using.

Some have the seat units and other's the overhead, we think that their service and seating is so superior that the entertainment bit never worries us.

Actually had so may trips with them last year we have obtained the Gold Card and then you find out just how good they are. Have been given a full return upgrade to Europe for the cost of a economy fare. Never would have happened with Qantas.

Hi ness026,

Thai are fine to fly with. I have flown with them 7 of the 8 times to Phuket and will be flying with them in May. Food is fine, just the normal airline food. Crew are usually friendly & attentive...better than some QANTAS crew I've flown with. The aircraft they fly from Perth are Airbus A330 & have recently added the Boeing 777. Unfortunately these aircraft don't have seat back entertainment systems, but they have recent movies on the overhead screens. Don't worry, sit back, have a drink and enjoy the flight.

Thai Airways Perth to Phuket is fine. No personal screens to my knowledge. Food is okay, staff always nice.

Only pain is Phuket airport these days. Combination of extra checks, traffic volume and the typical Thai speed of doing things can make for a fairly long and frustrating wait after the flight. Still it is all worth it.
