Pros: "The in-flight service is better than others."
Cons: "The check-in process at Heathrow is a chaos. I’m not sure who’s responsible, between the Airlines or the Airport. It sholuld arrange separate rows between those already check-in online and the others. I also saw the officials let some (1-5) group of (3-8) people each bypass the long queue, without reasons. The seat and leg space are so narrow that the direct 10+hour- flight is not so comfortable."

Pros: "The crew are very friendly and helpful. There was a variety of entertainment options, with recent films, tv shows and music options to keep you busy. I also thought the food options were good, too. You didn't go too long without being asked about a new beverage or meal, pretty satisfying."

Cons: "Service was no different from economy class - perfunctory, reactive. No offers of any refreshments between the set meal times (not even water)."
Cons: "We had two drunks behind us constantly kicking our seats. There was three free seats in front of us, we asked to move there but we were told that those seats were for crew in case of turbulence. It's the first time I hear this. Half way through they allowed us to move for those seats."

Pros: "Al ways friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Easy check-in, friendly, helpful attendants, on-time departure and arrival.."

They would fall out of the bottom and onto the floor. I love Thai food, but food on the flight was not good at all; bland and unappetizing. My foot became pinched hard against the food cart during meal service."
