Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "The crew were faultless; looking after your every need - food choices in Business superb. And time for rest."
Cons: "Nothing really; maybe just that the A330 seat was a little old with seat controls hard to decipher."
Pros: "Courteous and professional stadd"
Cons: "Some hurry up but not overly so"
Pros: "Typical domestic coach flight experience... but the price was right. Had good personal tv entertainment available... but it was a short flight. Bring your own ear-phones."
Cons: "I was expecting some yummy Thai Food, but the food was strange. I eat everything... and I ate this food, but it was not good. The other 4 members of my family would not touch it. 2nd worst plane food in 200+ flights."
Cons: "I found it a bit odd that there were programs available from Bangkok to Vientiane, but no headphones to listen. I guess it improved my lipreading skills though ;)"
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."
Cons: "Seat don’t recline enough. Sure neck. Entertainment was quite limited. Needs more movie options."
Cons: "NAIA chaos"
Pros: "All good except Manila Airport"
Cons: "NAIA Airport Imigration"
Pros: "Inflight good. Food average. Unfortunately there was AirCond snag and delayed for over an hour, arrived KULAP safely."
Cons: "Attentive and helpful cabin crew."
Pros: "Entertainment, general comfort"
Cons: "Crew was not very attentive"
Cons: "Food terrible"
Pros: "The staff were extremely helpful boarding me even when my previous domestic flight arrived late and I was able to board and check in my luggage half hour before take off time"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff. I was carrying medication that needed to be in a cool box. A flight attendant provided me with ice cubes wrapped in plastic bag and paper towel. She checked with me from time to time to ensure that the medication was kept in the proper temperature during the flight. That was first class service and I couldn't thank her enough."
Cons: "Seat is too narrow and the recline is not ergonomically designed, in short, uncomfortable. The entertainment portal is not user friendly. Food quality and variety seem to have declined."
Cons: "Air Canada cancelled the original flight and rescheduled it for one day later. This was an obvious problem since it affected other travel plans. Air Canada customer service was very poor. First agent was unhelpful, second agent better. Overall it was a pain to finally get another flight for the original day."
Cons: "Our connection flight from Germany was changed and we were not informed meaning we land in Germany after the flight has departed. We're forced to buy a last minute flight with a different airline to ensure we do not miss our honeymoon plans"
Cons: "Being charged 5700baht on arrival check in for luggage. No mention of this as I booked through kayak!!!"
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: "The comfort could have been better. I find myself a little fidgety on flights anyway but I also had a sore back and couldn't seem to find a way to get completely comfortable, but I have had worse!"
Cons: "Lack of legroom"
Pros: "Good food, friendly crew"
Cons: "Entertainment limited, arrival in BKK terrible, offloading a 747 with busses is a no go. Long waiting time in plane."
Cons: "Food option was limited. I had to choose either chicken or pork. I think along with meat, a veg option might be better."
Pros: "The Cabin Crew were very attentive & nice. Great customer service."
Cons: "It’s time for the 747 to retire. It looked tired and worn."
Pros: "The staff was nice and efficient."
Cons: "They didn't start boarding until very late and additionally the flight was an hour delayed. Understood that this is sometimes out of the airlines control as it may have been the airport's fault but they didn't notify the passengers why. This caused me & my boyfriend to miss a ferry we were scheduled to take in Krabi. We lost almost an entire day of our trip because of this."
Pros: "Attentive service, great food, smooth flight"
Cons: "Security queue when transferring at Bangkok Airport: Need more scanners and a fast track lane would be nice. Decor on the plane a bit tired with some paint chipping"
Cons: "Outdated Entertrainment system... btw, no entertainment system... safety video had so many hiccups, need to restart multiple times. First flight which did not have either Pepsi or Coke products. Only carbonated drink available is spirite.. very disappointed. Crew was not friendly.. Even when the wish for entry or say bye, attitude and face they make towards Indian looking people was very unacceptable."
Pros: "Nothing - I had to cancel from China - took time. I then booked myself"
Cons: "film choices, old or irrelevant or American."
Pros: "Reasonably peaceful"
Pros: "Excellent service throughout"
Cons: "That Kayak did not inform me when bookinhg that the seats they were selling me had to be at the very back of the plane Last time I will ever use Kayak"
Pros: "I had to race from London to Sydney due to family illness. I experienced Exceptional ground crew service. Especially from Vera the Manager at Sydney airport on arrival."
Pros: "I love the Japanese style food as well."
Pros: "Good seats in Business class on A380. Much better than BA, but not as good as Etihad. Cabin was too warm. Overhead lights flickering because of problem with bulb (yet on a fairly new aircraft)."
Cons: "Service was no different from economy class - perfunctory, reactive. No offers of any refreshments between the set meal times (not even water)."
Pros: "Overall flight experience is good. Wish they had more veggie options in Business class"
Cons: "Too much Thai. They switch off the entertianment 30 min before and then its all about thailand.."
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"
Cons: "My sister died and I wanted to change the date of my ticket and Thai would not cooperate at all, on the other hand Delta changes all my tickets so I could return to the states with no additional fees. Thai said economy call was full on my requested change date but they had Business Class tickets available, and I ask if I could apply the cost of my economy ticket amount to the Business Class ticket and they said no, that I could only purchase a new Business Class ticket. Real accommodating when you have an emergency."
Pros: "Space and treatment like a human being."
Cons: "The plane was about 20-30 minutes late taking off. Fortunately, I still made my connecting flight."
Pros: "The flight was smooth, comfy, and relaxing. The chairs have everything you need with two pockets, USB, power outlet, and stereo headphone jacks (it looks like the old school dual mono with two prongs but just plug into the right one for stereo). The entertainment was superb with very recent films (although they were censored which sucks) and a responsive unit and nice remote."
Cons: "The only thing that was lame was the food. Absolutely terrible. You don't have many options at 40,000 ft but be prepared for sub dollar store quality. At least the booze was free."
Cons: "Food quality"
Pros: "Plenty of room. Not crowed at all. 747 on an island & domestic flight."
Cons: ""Hot pocket" style handouts. Not what Thai Airway is known for."
Pros: "I watched a nice new movie."
Pros: "Service of crew in the aircraft and food"
Cons: "Everything was cozy and nice"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Old plane..."
Pros: "very nice flight comfortable. food could be improved."
