Welcome every one to this trip report in a B777-300ER Economy Class by Thai Airways. This review will determine if Thai Airways deserves the spot as the best economy class in the world. I just arrived from Chennai International airport and I reviewed their B777-200 product.
This is the way to the transfer desks. The transfer desks were very fast and took almost no time(at least at the terminal I was in). In rush hour times such as A380 arrivals or when the whole lot of planes arrive from south Asia or east Asia, is when the rush hour starts. My flight arrived in the morning so I had to burn some time at Bangkok Airport.
I did a bit of plane spotting and these are the pictures:
Japan Airlines B787-8 to Tokyo Narita Korean Air B747-I8 to Seoul Incheon Etihad Airlines B777-300 to Abu Dhabi Finnair A350-WXB to Helsinki Emirates A380-800 to Dubai Qatar Airways ? to Doha Myanmar Airlines A320 to Yangon MAI Airlines A320 to Yangon
I slept through the whole transit time and I ate a burger in Burger king. I then went and sat next to my gate.
I would like to appreciate the charging points available in the airport. The airport also has good Wi-Fi and has a good amount of natural sunlight.
Soon later the boarding started at Gate G1A and the boarding took some time. The boarding was by bus
The was situated at a remote stand so there was a chance to do some more plane spotting Kuwait Airways ? to Kuwait City KLM B787-8 to Amsterdam Swiss Air ? to Geneva ANA B787-8 to Tokyo Air Asia A320 to Kuala Lumpur
I also spotted a Thai Airways A380 under maintenance
We Then entered our aircraft a Thai Airways B777-300ER
I walked to my seat and taxiing started few minutes late because there were some transit passengers missing.
There was a decent quality headphone, a blanket and a pillow on every economy seat.
The seat included a in-flight entertainment system, a USB port, a detachable remote and a coat hanger. The tray table can be used half open and full open. The seat pitch was incredibly good and it also included a leg rest.
They served pre-departure snacks that included a bag of nuts and drinks of your preference. They include apple, orange and other fruit juices. They also serve champagne in business class.
The boarding passes of Thai Airways is really beautiful and they are well presented unlike other airlines such as China Eastern or SriLankan Airlines. The lavaratory was clean and fresh. Unfortunately, I got to carried away by the Sound of music so I could not get a lot of pictures. This was the meal provided to the vegetarian passengers, as I chose the vegetarian option, I could not take the time to look at the other options,
This was a very short flight and we deboarded the plane via a bus.
We went to the immigration and the only other international flight was the Ethiopian Airlines B777 from Addis Ababa, which made the immigration a quick and easy process. The bags however arrived really late so that lost my time. We picked up our bags and we left PVG.
Thank you for reading my trip-report and I hope you enjoyed it. If you have any questions, please make sure you comment below. Do check out my trip-report of Shanghai Airlines B737 from Shanghai PVG to Harbin airport (which is coming soon)
Bangkok - BKK
Shanghai - PVG
The flight was very enjoyable and costumer friendly. The efficiency of both BKK and PVG are both really good and the services that they provide are absolutely worthwhile. I do think that Thai Airways economy product is the best world. However, I would not say the same for their business class. The Boarding passes and the cabin crew were amazing. The only thing that I suggest they change is the layout of their IFE, it looks organized but I think it is a bit too organized which makes it inconvenient. All in all this flight was definitely worth it, and I can not really complain about it.
