Bangkok Airways ‘Asia’s Boutique Airline’ believes that all passengers should never fly to their destination on an empty stomach. You probably won’t either; the airline serves some great inflight meal options in economy class even on some of their shortest flights. Here’s a look at what was served recently on a flight that I took from Phuket to Bangkok in economy class.

BEFORE THE FLIGHT
Economy class passengers have access to the airlines boutique lounges that offer free wifi along with hot/cold drinks and snacks. This is a great benefit considering that most airlines reserve their inflight lounges for business class or frequent flyer guests.
The flight from Phuket to Bangkok would take approximately one hour, so I was expecting to receive snacks such as biscuits, nuts or crisps. However, the service onboard far exceeded my expectations. Firstly the cabin crew offered a refresher towel to everyone followed by a full meal service.
There was no meal choice and my meal consisted of a chicken salad, a Thai side salad, a bread roll, and a banana chocolate sponge cake. The food was tasty and more than enough for a short hop across Thailand.
Once the cabin crew finished the meal service, they offered refills of coffee, tea and a selection of fruit juices. I was quite impressed with the level of service offered considering the flight time.
I would happily fly the airline again and since have, the experience was excellent.
