Bangkok Air markets itself as ‘Asia’s Boutique Airline’ and believes that all passengers should never fly to their destination on an empty stomach. And you probably won’t; the airline serves some great inflight meal portions in economy class even on short flights. Let’s take a closer look at the Bangkok air meals being served inflight.


But even before boarding your flight you notice that there is something different about this airline, all passengers (yes even economy class) are allowed to enter the airlines boutique lounges which offer free wifi along with hot/cold drinks and snacks. Not bad considering that most airlines today seem to be taking more and more away from passengers.

Further information about these lounges is hard to find so make sure you ask about them when checking in for your flight.



My flight in economy class and will take me from Phuket to Bangkok with a flying time of just over one hour. Anywhere else in the world I would expect a small snack or perhaps some crisps or nuts. But not on Bangkok Airways. First off I received a refresher towel which is then followed by what one can only describe as service to the max.

Everyone gets a meal tray which on today’s flight consists of a chicken salad, a Thai side salad, a bread roll, and a banana chocolate sponge cake. The food itself is tasty and probably way too much to consume on such a short flight, but I’m not complaining.

During the flight, the cabin crew move through the aircraft regularly offering refills of coffee, tea and a selection of fruit juices. I’m very impressed.


I would happily fly the airline again The inflight meal experience was a real treat, I wish that more airlines offered passengers this kind of service on short flights.
