Usually the word travel is classified as a way to enjoy life and forget about your worries. Traveling has this therapeutic effect which can help people grow to become a better version of their normal selves. This can only be revealed as a therapy in our lives when it corrects the imbalances and immaturities of our nature, so when it comes to flying, a comfortable and safe ride is essential. Let’s see how Thai Airways lives up to this.
Origins and Ownership
Thai Airways International Public Co,.ltd is the flag carrier of Thailand. It was founded on May 1rst, 1960. Charamporn Jotikasthira was appointed as CEO by the Thai BOD (Board Of Directors) effective December 4th, 2014. He was the former president and CEO of the Stock Exchange of Thailand and he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and an MBA from Harvard University, U.S.A.
What people are saying
Most people concur that the ground service is excellent, but seat comfort and value for money is bad. For example, this one guy was complaining that his seat was not clean and it has an awful smell. So they don’t recommend Thai Airways, because for them it’s a lousy experience they’d rather not pass on to others.
With the accessibility of smartphones these days, Thai Airways established their own mobile app to expand services wherein you can check in online, check your flight status, and you can also alter your flight and book hotels/vehicles. They do promote deals which are located on the main page for you to find great opportunities to explore the world on a budget.
Customer service is open daily, customer service numbers can be found below. They also provide FAQs to help people who are hearing impaired, as well as TTY services.
Here are a few examples of some of the food that Thai Airways serves:

The airline’s amenities include “THAI Sky connect”, that’s the name of their wifi connection. They also have the “subtle mood” type of space where travellers can relax and for ease and convenience, the THAI Sky in-flight wifi internet service (Royal First Class) offers Airbus A330-300 (33H) and A380-800 flights. (Service fees are payable thru debit and credit cards).
They recently upgraded their current fleet and acquired new aircraft to improve their facilities. Customers can carry free baggage but with specified conditions and limitations.
Thai Airways awards frequent flyers with points that accumulate depending on which class you’re flying with as well as how far you go. Awards give passengers discounts on their flights, upgrades, discounts on hotels and vehicles as well as many other promotions.
And if you’re bringing a pet along for the ride, THAI offers “pet travel” wherein you can bring your pets on board but of course they will be loaded in an aircraft hold just beneath the passengers cabin but are of course afe and in a temperature controlled environment.

Thai Airways offers the best for their clients but at the same time, the comforts of some of their clients are not that good. So I guess they need a little fix that and they’re good to go. Thai airways also ranks at 14th place last year but now, they’ve fallen down to the 19th place.
