Arrival in Bangkok

We only had a few hours in Bangkok so we headed directly to the city and started our sightseeing tour. Lovely!

Conclusion

 

Thai Airways had delivered once again an almost excellent service with very good food. The only thing I noticed was that no earphones were handed out so I ended up not using the IFE system. Also, there was a delay during take off causing our late arrival in Bangkok. Overall, a good experience flying with Thai.
