A particularly respectful flight attendant brought a blanket to put below the seat belt on my belly. I'm pregnant and this was very nice and helpful. Made me feel wonderful after an exhausting business trip. I would be happy to buy another ticket from Thai Airways International.
The Thai Airways International staff at the Bangkok airport were incredibly polite and helpful. Thai Airways International were exceptionally courteous, especially about my emotional support dog, who travels with me everywhere. They were happy to greet and pet my dog. Thai Airways International staff were pleasantly invited into all three flights I had to take home. All other airlines I have flown with were not so pleasant about my dog flying with me. I was met with positive and an outstanding level of customer facility from every worker. Thank you so much for help with what would have been a very stressful travel day. I will definitely purchase an air ticket from Thai Airways International again!
