      I flew with Thai Airways from Bangkok to Oslo. They have a choice for Premium Economy on this route so I upgraded my accommodation to this class. I thought it was a long flight thus it is needed that I should have the best accommodation but at the same time we usually worry about the costs of traveling. Premium economy is available only in intercontinental flights like my Bangkok-Oslo. I was excited about the accommodation that I was getting because I never tried this with other airlines. Premium Economy seating is configured as 2 seats then 3 seats in the middle and then 2 seats again unlike the 2-4-2 in ordinary economy.

      I did not like the method that Thai Airways have regarding how to book your ticket online. It does not provide a route map to check their available destinations. I have to manually searched it at Wikipedia to check what countries they fly. Because I


      have learned this that you can get better rate when you book your ticket directly with the Airline’s website, I do my booking all by myself. Their website does not also support a more flexible search result as to the availability of more days for that route but solely limited to the date you desired or you requested. Meaning if your chosen date is “no flight” so you have to guess and manually change each arrival and departure dates and start your search from the very beginning. It was tiring and mostly inappropriate.

      I had great time with Premium Economy accommodation. First, the seat was very comfortable. I like the bigger seat that they have. It is 42 inches and it affords so much space from the ordinary economy and the degrees of recline can be extended up to 122 degrees. It is more than the comfort you are enjoying than the average economy class. It ...


      • is very satisfying that they came up with this kind of accommodation because if you want a more comfortable trip yet you don’t have enough budget to splurge then this can be your option. This accommodation also has fingertip-controlled leg rests which is more likable. The experience is close to business class yet the price is different.

        You can opt for your food in Premium Economy. For me, Thai Airways serves one of the bests food among the airlines. The gastronomical delight was just very unquenchable. I still yearn for more after my meal and kept asking for more beverage instead. They had a great selection for in-flight entertainment. I would say I was impressed with their interactive AVOD system. The screen is 9″ and it is touch screen more for a more enjoyable viewing of whatever option you want. I just did not like the variety of movies in the list because it was

        not really nice. The games as well were ordinary. They have a rich selection for music though as it encompasses all musical genres.

        The thing that is so distinct also about Thai Airways is its exceptional cleanliness that I have observed anywhere. Even the plates and the wine glass that I used were really spotless. I enjoyed the company of the flight attendants. They have this sensitivity about your welfare and if you are enjoying your flight. I like them very much and most of them were females unlike other airlines that male attendants. They were very smiling and kind to your needs and I did not have problems asking for whatever I need. As regards customer service, this airline is the best. They also advertise that your journey is as smooth as silk, well, I cannot vouch for that because during turbulence, that is not applicable. Perhaps the take off was smooth as well as the landing.

    I think you have to wait, I doubt they will give compensation, If you miss the flight due to them they will probably give you an alternative flight that is all. Hope this helps D
