I was actually surprised to have a meal on a flight of only 1.2 hours. The cabin crew’s level of English fluency was great. I felt that I was treated as a special customer with the service offered. Also, the seats were spacious and comfortable. Besides, the air ticket price was very reasonable when compared to air ticket prices of other international airlines.
Actually, this is the seventh time I booked my air ticket and am reviewing Bangkok Airways. The cabin was spotless and smelt very good. The meal was a grilled vegetable salad topped with salmon, and was exactly what I selected. The crew on the flight were friendly and very welcoming. I will always book my air ticket with them.
