Cons: "More options for music and movies."
Pros: "We landed safely. Ultimately, that’s all that matters."

Cons: "Business class seats on the B747 - unless you’re sitting upright, they are one of the most uncomfortable seats I’ve experienced. TG either need to upgrade the seats on the B747 (very unlikely) or put another aircraft type the BKK-SYD-BKK route."

Bags also came out first & delivery was very quick. Looking forward to flying Thai again several more times this month & wish I could experience their international service which I’m sure is stellar."

Pros: "Service, client treatment, food"
Pros: "Flight was fine, crew nice & on time."

Pros: "Nice Crew , very professional and courteous. Pleasant with their service. Would recommend only once for tourism. Not for families travelling with children."
Cons: "Because the system of on arrival visa has been opened to Indian folks , entire plane was crowded with indecent , uncultured Men. Mostly drunkards who would not stop at couple of drinks. Added to their worst behavior was the airlines providing unlimited amount of Liquor that was being offered by the crew after the food was served, this was quite annoying and unexpected. Thai Airways Please stop serving Liquor for God's sake , especially for folks travelling from India (Only this route) or charge $100 THB for a drink, this would stop those free riders from messing up other tourists happy vacation."

Pros: "the flight Vientiane-Bangkok was very good but departed 1 hour late. However the delay was very well handled: the assistant told me when I checked in and put a "hot transfer" tag on my luggage. A person was waiting at Bangkok airport and took me and another passenger through the transfer and both my luggage and I got into the second plane despite the very tight connection. Well done and thank you"
