Have taken this flight numerous times and again Thai did not let me down. Cabin was clean, food was very good, service perfect and seat room excellent (190cm tall) . On time leaving and arriving with information relayed about flight was precise and accurate.
I flew this route many times with Thai but the service never improved the night flight 21:30 they give a drink and a meal about 2 hours into flight turn off lights and disapear for 8 hours no entertainment no drinks unless you go looking for the staff in the galley and asked I stopped using them.
Upstairs in business class on a 747-400 is the place to be. It's a little oasis of calm. I prefer these "lie-flat" seats to the herringbone pods of other airline for their width. I've actually got pretty adept at sleeping at a slight angle.Service was good, but not quite the TG standard I've come to expect. The crew seemed to lack cohesion and most walked around with frowns on the face. Had there been an incident prior to take off? If so, that should not affect the on board service.The food was very good and the IFE kept me diverted for a few hours before stretching out for some shut-eye.
Thai uses intercontinental 747-400's on this route on a regular basis. Although Thai doesn't use First class on this route, Business Class passengers are sometimes seated in First. Nice cabin but very hot, as always excellent service on just a 1:30 hr flight. Fully booked so, on a 747, priority disembarking and luggage-handling made everything really smooth.
