Conclusion

It was a memorable flight with Thai, the nice Jumbo plane I ever flown. Although the washroom equipment which need to improve, other things are fine within 2 hr 45 mins flight.

The cabin crew still serve in friendly smile, it let me feel what Smooth as Silk is. The flight is full because this time slot is suitable for the travelers. The crew is really efficiency in this short flight to let us enjoy the luxury meal and duty free service.
I really love my seafood meal, because I can't imagine there are salad with salmon. The Thai Catering is doing a good job, and the main dish is nice. The pumpkin cake is tasty.

To sum up, I don't want to get off from the plane. I really miss the hospitality service and the tasty meal in TG606. The most important is, it is lack of chance to take flight with Boeing 747-400 is such short flight.

    Thanks for sharing this report. I did not realise that TG still operated the 747, the queen of the skies.
    The cabin is a bit outdated but still comfortable with a good legroom and in good conditions; The meal is very nice and i think that to pre order it was an excellent choice. The hudge galley has always amazed me and i remember it on older versiosn of KLM 747's.
