Believe it or not: In-flight meals can be delicious, too!
Thai Airways

In the past, in-flight meals were not generally something that passengers looked forward to. However, all that has started to change, as many airlines are striving to bring great food onto their aircraft in order to provide passengers with a satisfactory dining experience, especially during long-distance flights.

This year, Thai Airways has just completed a corporate image makeover. In keeping with its traditional "smooth as silk" spirit, Thai is providing exquisite service to passengers in its four cabin classes: Royal First, Royal Silk, Premium Economy, and Economy. Inside the Thai-style Royal First class, passengers can enjoy exclusive tableside service, experience a foretaste of Thai atmosphere, and savor delicious Thai cuisine, as well as other exclusively selected delicacies from time to time. Royal Silk and Premium Economy also provide a great variety of delicacies and table wines from around the world. Thai dishes such as Hot and Sour Soup with Prawns, Massaman Curry with Chicken, and Khanom Ba-Bin (Coconut Cake), plus Western entrees such as Caviar, Lobster Thermidor, and Rack of Lamb with Rosemary Sauce, all come with an unlimited supply of free drinks. In addition, the airline provides a reservation service to provide special meals for passengers with special dining requirements due to religion or health conditions. Thai Airways stresses that even passengers in the Economy class are able to enjoy a variety of flight meals, not to mention the same attentive service that all of its passengers experience.
