    Thank you so much for catching up on that bLOG update... and for sharing my excitement of another addition to the fleet of THAI.

    In my opinion, the A350 is the most beautiful looking aircraft next after the B747.

    I love the business end of their cabin - so comfortable and such a great space to spend a lot of time.

    I have always thought it's rather sad that the windows of the BKK terminal are always so dirty.... it's almost impossible to get a clear photo of the aircraft outside. This has been a long time problem for BKK I think, and there appears to be no solution in the near future.

      Comment on bLOG update of 2018-Mar-30: Kudos to Thai Airways

      Yes I do like this new safety video A totally Thai touch and flavour as you say, while very clearly showing the safety requirements and details - the illustrations of these are very clear. For example, I don't think I've ever seen the exact locations of the life jackets in other airlines videos.

      Undoubtedly a huge improvement. I can't actually remember anything about the one on my last flight with Thai Airways and it was only last November!

        Nothing better than updating their product: they still have some way to go, but they are at least moving forward.

          I don't think I have shared this video from Thai Airways telling the story of their first A350...

          This is indeed an amazing and beautiful aircraft - no matter which operator is painted on the fuselage. It's like one of the most elegant ladies in the skies... the wings and their winglets are actually "sixi" if you get what I'm saying. Look at the 4:47 mark of the video ---- that sequence and shot really make my heart pound so hard.

          This was a very proud moment for Thai, and a promise of better times to come. Now, only, if their staff would step all the way up to the plate as well and start making great money for Thailand's national carrier. There are so many wonderful staff in Thai, but then there are also some that truly doesn't fit the mood properly.

            HS-TGF skidded off the runway in heavy rain back on October 8th 2018.... I HOPE this will NOT be the premature end of this B747!

            Information on the aircraft: https://www.planespotters.net/airfra...ional/qMNeFOlB

            A Thai Airways International Boeing 747-400 was involved in a "partial" runway excursion at Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International airport on the evening of 8 October.
