I’ve never flown Thai business on an international route so I was pretty excited. I lowered my expectations a bit as this is a intra-Asia flight and doesn’t even have fully flat seats.

Review: TG Royal Orchid Spa BKK

This is one of the most unique ground services out there. Thai Airways provides spa services to Royal First (First) and Royal Silk (Business) class customers. This is provided only to First and Business class customers flying on Thai Airways metal and is not extended to partner First and Business or Star Alliance Gold.

Review: TG CNX-BKK Business

Aircraft: 777-300
Origin: CNX
Destination: BKK
Seat: 14B Business
Scheduled Push Back: 10:05 AM

Like most Thai flights this is when they want you at the gate not when boarding will actually begin.

An announcement then came over the PA that the flight won’t board until 1:40 PM due to technical reasons. However, the status showed on time on the terminal monitors and website.

Review: Thai Royal Orchid Lounge Domestic BKK

I wasn’t too excited for this lounge as my experience with domestic lounges haven’t been too great. I flew Egypt Air and while their international lounge at Cairo was decent, the domestic lounge was essentially a room with chairs. However, this lounge was decent. It’s nothing special, but exceeded my expectations.
