Airfare Details

Thai Airways, which has searched for some years to find the right mix, is making a strong comeback with a new Business Class product called, unsurprisingly, Royal Silk Class.

Coinciding with a new brand image and livery change for the airline as a whole, the new business class product features seats that recline a full 170 degrees on the new A340-500s plying the groundbreaking 17-hour Bangkok-New York nonstop route.

Airbus A340s and retro-fitted B747-400 aircraft also offer generous 170-degree recline. The A-340 aircraft are flying Bangkok to New York, Los Angeles, Auckland and Zurich. Personal entertainment options have started appearing with large 10.4-inch screens and a choice of over 30 films and documentaries on all classes on A340-500 and A340-600 aircraft. New livery and entertainment is being gradually introduced to the THAI longhaul fleet.

Travel First Class with Thai and relax on reclining sleeper seats in an opulently appointed cabin while enjoying an array of delicious dishes served on fine chinaware with silverware and place settings.

 Meals are accompanied by fine champagnes, like Cuvee Dom Perignon 1996 and La Grande Dam 1995, Veuve Clicquot as well as carefully selected wines. Complimentary drinks are available at any time during the flight except take-off and landing.
