    Welcome to Flight report :)
    Flew with Thai Lion a few years ago and it's pretty decent for a low-cost, though I'm not a massive fan of their website to book a flight as filling my cc details is a way too long process to complete and they often fly at unwanted times, but the shrimp with tamarind sauce meal seems to look decent, just a shame that it wasn't properly heated.
    Thanks for sharing your report.

    Hi, Newuno!!

    Welcome on board!!

    to visit my grandmother.

    That speaks very well about you! A loving grandchild.

    Flight departed on-time at 08:25

    And that speaks very well of Thai Lion Air!! You might want to add the departure and arrival times to the flight data. Looks like you forgot to do that.

    pass my house on the west bank of Chao Phraya River

    Isn't it exciting when you can see your house from the air? Sometimes I can see my city from the airplane, but it's too far from the airport to take good photos. :(

    Some of rice still cold like unheated

    That's terrible! I would have told the FA about that.

    you can see the coast before landing.

    Beautiful sight. I love aerial photos!

    the new terminal is under construction

    Wonderful architecture! That, and the possibility to walk on the apron, makes for a fantastic arrival!! Plenty of opportunities to take photos!

    Thanks for sharing!! :D

    Hi Newuno, thanks for sharing your first report here with us! It's nice to see a review on Thai Lion Air as we don't see those too often. The pre-ordered meal looks pretty decent, too bad some of the rice was uncooked. Was the price reasonable?

    Thanks for sharing and welcome to Flight-Report!

    Thanks. It's the suspended experience we sorely missed now. The shrimp look nice, (from just the look, though). I did not SL often, and on one occasion I tried to order hot food, but to no avail. Hopefully one day after this lockdown is over.

    Also, nice to see you here and welcome!

    Thank you for the report and welcome!
    I really like Don Mueang airport, mainly because it is well-connected to Bangkok train station! It was a really interesting experience!
    The meal looks good, but they serve it even for breakfast?
