“What I imagine flying USED to be”
Review of Bangkok Airways


Reviewed 3 June 2020

We fly Bangkok Airways, a boutique carrier that offers all the luxuries of old, for very reasonable prices, so for our hop to Bangkok, which takes an hour, we can bring one piece of checked luggage for free! Though I don't even have time to finishing reading the in-flight magazine provided, the cabin crew have time to do a full breakfast service, WITH hot beverages, AND clean up the dishes(with REAL utensils!) before we begin our descent to the airport. And the best part? We have access to a LOUNGE in Bangkok!!! Sure, it may be full of people, the seats aren't super comfy and the snacks provided are basic, but it's INCLUDED in the price of the ticket. What a change from most carriers these days(I'm looking at YOU, Air Canada).

This flight was one part of a connection to Chiang Rai, Thailand, both legs of which were flown with Bangkok Airways.

This was only a short flight to Samui from Phuket. Checked in online and went to bag drop off area which was closed so we had to queue up and drop the bags off at the normal line.
Flight was only half full but you can see the crew were not in a good mood on the flight as the food (a bland sandwich) was inedible and the coffee was Nescafe 3 in 1. You only have this airline so they have the monopoly and the price is extremely expensive.

Had to exit Vietnam asap due to the Coronavirus situation which was difficult with numerous flight cancellations etc but our travel company sorted out a flight on Bangkok Airways to BKK.

Wasn’t expecting a great experience but it was very good all round, plane, flight and service was excellent.
