Business Class Cabin
The business class cabin has a 2-2-2 configuration with 29 of 30 seats being occupied that day.
A few minutes later, the captain came to the PA and announced the flight time of 2 hours and 53 minutes. He also apologized for the late departure (it was 45 minutes delayed) because of heavy traffic. Hot towels, magazines and more drinks followed.
Smoked salmon Rosette with caper, mixed salad with Vinaigrette Dressing
Pan-fried Fish with Mindanao sauce, Spinach and Pumpkin Rice
The other choices were Mixed Seafood with Garlic Basil, Beef Tips Tagalog with Eggplant and Onion Rings and Pork Stew Wushi style with Bell Pepper. For drinks, I decided to settle with a glass of apple juice. The champagne on board was the usual Piper Heidsieck Brut Champagne.
Pumpkin Cheese Cake
Tea, coffee, espresso and cappuccino were served after dessert but I declined.
Well, it was another great experience flying with Thai Airways. For a short flight, I thought the food was more than enough and tasted excellent. The cabin attendants were very friendly and the service was almost perfect. The delay had not been a problem to me since I had enough time to connect to my flight for Rangoon. Overall, a very nice flight. Thanks a lot, Thai Airways 😍
