Inflight Meals

For Asian food loving passengers, Thai Airways should be in your consideration in booking a flight. Flight attendants, in their orchid purple suite, are always smiling and asking if you need anything to drink. Although many other airlines have cut cost on short haul flights, Thai Airways has lived to their true standard and offering great Thai food choice. For desserts or snacks, you cannot miss Mango tart or tamarind juice. 

However, the food served on Thai Airways might be too spicy to some people. Some desserts, such as coconut  dessert, are too sweet but tasty. Adjust your taste and welcome to Southeast Asia!
