      I took Thai Airways from New York’s JKF Airport to Bangkok, and it was an excellent flight. The cost was $1,244 round trip in coach class. This is about $100 more than most other airlines, but it is the only airline that can take you to BKK non-stop! All other airlines need to stop first in Tokyo, Hong Kong or Taipei. It was nice to have a “one segment” flight all the way to my destination. It was also a top notch airline. We departed right on time, and landed on time to the very minute. Updates were regular about our status, in English and Thai.

      The plane was new and well laid out, modern and had a nice purple plush color décor. The seats were comfortable

      and had a nice 11 inch recline to them. The entertainment system was extensive with a screen on the pack of every seat, and another large screen in the front of each cabin that showed our mapped route. The private individual screens offered about 10 Hollywood movies, 5 Thai movies and 1 Chinese film with English subtitles. Good choices of popular current movies, some still showing in theaters. There were playstation video games and plenty of music choices, including Thai pop, Japanese and other Asian hits, and some Euro American hits. Everyone got headphones wrapped in plastic when we boarded.

      The meals were extremely good, better than you’d expect on an airline. The choices were traditional Pad Thai, fish, chicken or vegetarian meals. We got 3 meals on ...

      • the 18 hour flight, and extra snacks all the way through. Wine, beer and coolers were free during meals, and other snacks and juices were also free all the time. A type of small cake was often served, and these were especially good. They served guava juice as a choice, which is very expensive in the US, but nicely available in Thailand. Popular magazines were available in Thai, English and Chinese. Two newspapers were available, the Bangkok Post (in English) and a Thai language newspaper. The flight crew were very polite and friendly, and spoke English very well. They looked sharp in their full length dress outfits.

        The bathrooms had plenty of paper towels, soaps and moist towelettes. There were 2 in each section, so plenty for everyone, no

        lines. During the evening they dimmed the lights for sleeping, as most airlines do, for about 5 hours, but I was still able to watch movies on my private screen. Very little turbulence, except when we crossed the jet stream for 20 minutes, but we were warned about that ahead of time. The crew were attentive, and the announcements were useful.

        Landing was right on time, and we were helped with the immigration process, filling in the arrival cards. Others were helped to connecting flights. The crew were very nice and so helpful. I would highly recommend Thai Airways. Along with JAL and Malaysia Air, I think Thai is one of the 3 best airlines in the world. Their service from airport counter to the flight, all the way through, was excellent.
