Pros: "friendly, professional crew"
Pros: "I would highly recommend flying with this airline. It was a very efficient process and the staff was not only helpful but very nice."
Cons: "There's only one down side of this flight. The Lucknow international airport terminal is downright embarrassing. There are four or five desks to handle passport control. That's fine, but none has a label on it as to who should be at which. NonIndians should go to the extreme left one. Then they have one xray machine that all arrivals have to put their carry-ons through while the previous flight is trying to put all their heavy luggage (they are most likely all male workers coming from the Gulf). Then there is a small, rickety belt with everyone crowded around for the luggage. Well, there are two belts, but only one is functional. And to top it off, most of the luggage carts have at least one broken wheel! Amazing and embarrassing when arriving from any terminal almost anywhere! Lucknow, you have a lovely domestic terminal, wake up and build an international one! Shurum ki bat ha!"
Pros: "There was no line to check in and the attendant very easily accepted our luggage to check in with no weight, size, or payment issues Was pleasantly surprised to get a snack box with a sandwich and beverage on such a short flight LOVED the online videos (practical jokes program), where no headphones were needed to enjoy"
Cons: "Fish sandwich wasn't my favorite"
Pros: "The crew was incredibly friendly, warm and helpful. Excellent service on board the aircraft with comfortable seating. And the meal served was delicious! (I never thought I would say that about food served on an airplane)"

Pros: "Great service, very amicable staff, excellent plane"

Cons: "I would have appreciated a vegetarian option for the meal."
Cons: "The crew had a poor attitude and even rude, I asked to move to get past the food trolley as my 4 year old son needed the toilet and they just said wait, they would only have to move 2 metres. We were sitting directly behind upper class but were not offered the chance to use the forward toilet even though there was no one sitting in that section. They seemed to have an attitude problem and not at al like Thai International who are excellent. will never fly again with Thai smile."
Pros: "The cost of upgrading to business class was very reasonable for a flight of that duration. Everything was stellar - service, food, drinks and access to the airport lounge. The meals were among the best I've had on any flight."
Cons: "The guy snoring. His snoring was literally louder than the noise from the jet engines and easily rose to levels that penetrated our noise cancelling headsets!!"
Cons: "I don't want to recommend to others to use this flight following reasons: (1) I can't use Thai lounge with star alliance gold card. (2) Thai air sold the Ticket, but boarding ticket issued by Thai smile. (3) a ground staff ( reissue staff)is unfriendly particularly those who is at Thai office, airport. (4)Thai smile is a low cost air line. So Thai air shouldn't sell this kind of ticket It hurts fame of Thai airs hospitality."

Pros: "Very flight and check-in process"
Pros: "Aircraft size was big for short haul"

Cons: "The price. This flight specifically was more expensive than others"
Cons: "The flights were delayed for both times of the round trip from BKK to Phuket and Phuket to BKK. Wasted 2 days as we got stranded in the airport. Unacceptable! Flight to Yangon from Bangkok was cancelled and they didn't send any notification to inform us. Horrible customer service. When transferred the flight to Thai Airways flight we were very rudely treated by the counter agent. For 5 hours of wasted time they "accomodated" us with 350 baht ($10) vouchers and when asked to provide us with free extra bag check-in the manager said sorry we can't do that. No resolution no compromise NO SMILE! Above average airline price with terrible service, expect this to happen to you too."
Pros: "The ladies are so kind...unlike many American airlines! Very nice flight!"
Pros: "Overall, the staff managed well the extra challenge of shutdowns and restrictions introduced by COVID. No complaints from me!"
Cons: "Honestly, Bangkok Air is one of my preferred regional carriers. "Normally" the food served is tasty, the plane is comfortable and the staff quite efficient. I have travelled a lot in my life and if there was a shortfall, would say so. Then again, I don't nitpick what professionals need to do to accomplish their jobs."

Pros: "I’m always impressed that Bangkok Airways serves food on short flights. The chilli chicken was actually not bad."

It took 3 tray when I booked my tickets, Later We tried to do online check in and pay for extra luggage, (suposed to be a 20% discount) for 3 days before leaving and it would not complete the requests. Kept saying server terminated connection. When I checked at the Airport I told them and they would not do any thing. like extend a discount on extra luggage. Sorry Cannot...... All the Thailairlines play games with extra luggage and sadly it seems BKK Air does now too... Still better then NOK or Air asia"

We then had to go back downstairs & instead of a domestic flight they suddenly changed us to international. Then we had to go through immigration, worried we'd miss flight."
Pros: "They got me on another flight within 15 min. We were met at the arrival gatewith a list of our names, and we all ran to meet the connecting flight including the rep from bangkok airways. Without their help we would have never made our connection."
Pros: "Our flight went very smooth. The crew members were genuine and truly made every effort to make sure everyone was comfortable. Great flight."
Pros: "Turkish air and Bangkok airlines don't like to give boarding passes for each other. So both times we had to go to the transfer desk. This is OK as long as there's time between flights.

Pros: "Service onboard food"
Pros: "Flight crew attitude was professional and friendly. Food choices were great."
Cons: "Had minor problem boarding. The airport was very crowded. I arrived 4 hours before flight time and had to wait until 2 hours before the flight to check-in. because they were not open. Airport was very crowded with few places to sit. Had to stand most of the time. Passing through security took a long time. The airport being crowded was not the fault of Bangkok Airways. On the plane, the seats were small and I had difficulty with the seatbelt being too small, which made it a little difficult eating the meal. The tray table was broken. I informed a flight crew member and she made a note of it for repairs. I do not remember her name."
