Thai Airways, Aircraft Fleet and new plans

THAI's superb product constantly receives favourable reviews both in the media and from passengers.

The First Class product provides customers with 180 degrees of recline, converting into the most comfortable of beds. One of the key features of these state-of –the-art seats is the legroom, which following the removal of four seats, provides almost seven feet of space in which to stretch out.

The ten Royal First Class seats have 76” pitch, width 21.84”, lie flat.

Elle and Guy Laroche comfort wear are offered to passengers with sleeping blindfolds and slippers. The amenity kits are from Hermes and Bvlgari.

First class menus include Caviar, Lobster and the award winning Don Perignon ’96 Champagne. Main courses can be pre-ordered from an extensive menu through Thai’s London Reservations Department.

Each seat in Royal First Class is equipped with LCD screens, telephone and computer access with PC outlet 115 VAC which is compatible with most laptops.

Ten years in the planning and THAI's Royal Silk Class is a promise of perfection in every aspect of service.

With so many features designed to provide the maximum in comfort and privacy these seats have received extensive accolades. They have 167 degree of recline and an increased seat pitch of 60 inches due to the removal of ten seats in the cabin, a personal telephone and AC outlet to power a laptop.

The Royal Silk Class seats are set only two abreast with an adjustable privacy screen, while the Audio Video on demand (AVOD) system offers an almost unlimited choice of entertainment information and games. Amenity kits are from Bio therm and Dupont
