Conclusion

To sum up. TG639 it was a nice flight after 4221 days when I took TG606 to HKG in 2005. 12 years ago, it used MD-11 on the flight.
Nowadays, TG using A330, A380,B747-400 and B777 in HKG-BKK.
The inflight entertainment it looks so so, but it feel outdated now. It is fine for 2 hr 30 min flight.
The food it looks like Business Class standard, this is the attraction of THAI Airways. However, the metal
tableware which was replaced by the plastic one.
The crew is friendly enough, if you have any needs. The willing to help you in smiley way.
It is nice to find out the smooth as silk in this flight.
