Cons: "Portion of food could have been slightly bigger"
Pros: "Good and being on time"
Cons: "So far so good for its price"
Pros: "Good meal"
Cons: "Check in and luggage drop for share code with Thai airways. It is not clear instruction when booking with Thai airways. We lost time with Thai airways but finally need to drop the luggage at Thai smil counter."
Pros: "Lovely people. Lovely service. Good food."
Cons: "An hour delay for no expressed reason is not acceptable."
Pros: "I'm very justifying for the flight."

Cons: "Entertainment program was boring, leg space limited"
Cons: "Getting our bags took a long time"
Pros: "Easy to book, travel and get around with."
Cons: "The on board snack isn’t great."
Pros: "Friendly staff overall good experience."
Cons: "Only issue is there is no alchohol on these flights."
Pros: "Our train from Chiang Mai was 2 hrs late. Our taxi driver sped us as fast as he could, but we had only 15 min from check in to the airplane take off. The counter personnel were so helpful in calling the gate for permission to board. We ran across the airport and made it thanks to Thai Smile staff."
Cons: "Vegetarian food option"
Pros: "Boarding was super fast and efficient. For a 1,5 hour flight, we were given food and drinks. Can’t find that in the US."
Cons: "Loved everything"
Pros: "Overall service including f Meals and drinks provided on flight and the ground handling and air crew all excellent."
Pros: "For a budget friendly airline you can't go wrong with Thai Smile. they were on time, food was provided free, staff was friendly."
Pros: "Flew out of BKK versus other airport in Bangkok. Easier to connect to international flights. Good service and frequent flights"
Cons: "They have sandwiches on the flights but they weren’t the best quality, I didn’t like what they gave out. We had roaches next to us crawling up the wall on our last flight, ended up finding some food Trash under our seat that was missed. not pleasant."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful, boarding was easy, flight was smooth"
Cons: "No entetainment, food just a pretty untasty sandwich"
Cons: "The flight from BKK-VTE did not allow online check-in and had to check in at the airport. The line to check in had 10 people in front of me which then proceeded to take over 1.5 hours to reach the counter. then was the very last person to get on the flight - the plane then didn’t leave for another 30 minutes. Thai Smile managed to make a 1 hour flight to Vientiane turn into a 4-5 hour journey between arriving early, waiting forever in the counter check in line, then being driven to the plane and actually leaving. Bangkok Airways and Air Asia (don meaung) is the better option for this short journey."
Cons: "I had a fracture in my leg several days prior to my trip so had to cancal all. My thai smile tickets were booked with vayama. They r the only suppliers whom declined my request for free cancaltion or even freeze our tickets."
Pros: "Love the AirBus 320, the service, to get all the passengers a sandwich in an hour flight is amazing! Luggage delivery is amazingly fast!"
Cons: "Would like to have later flights in the evening so connections to overseas flights at BKK are easier. Otherwise, nothing!"
Cons: "Arrived to BKK international with Turkmen airlines. Found Thai Smile transfer counter in transit zone. Was refused to Thai Smile flight, was explained that they serve only customers which arrived to BKK with Thai airways. Lost my money and had to buy another ecpencieve flight from Malaysia airlines because couldn't stay in transit zone more than 12 hours and couldn't get visa on arrival. Later coldn'd find that stupid transit policy ether on Thai Smile or Kayak. If that policy in place why not publish that BEFORE people spend their money for service not provided? Very unsatisfied"
Pros: "Ground and in flight service, food, aircraft"
Pros: "what's not to like. Free checked bag, free food, sandwich and bottle of water, soda and hot coffee and tea at no charge. All of the cheaper budget airlines charge for everything including checked bags, drinks and food. It's only a few baht/ US dollars more than the other airlines but well worth it for what you get in return compared to the other airlines such as Air Asia!"
Cons: "Nothing that I can think of."
Pros: "Great service, very amicable staff, excellent plane"
Pros: "Its only a short flight so there's not much time for anything to go wrong but it's good anyway. The staff are always friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Sometimes it can be difficult to hear announcements at the departure gate but apart from that no problem. Obviously there isn't any entertainment so I've left it at 5 stars. There should be a 'not applicable' option on this."
Pros: "Food is good for a short flight. The crew were professional."
Cons: "The check-in process at terrible. No instruction to follow and no one give direction on where to get boarding pass. the line for luggage drop-off was really long without people to give direction."

Pros: "Everything was first rate and efficient"

Pros: "The ladies are so kind...unlike many American airlines! Very nice flight!"
Pros: "Such a quick flight Bangkok to Phuket, I wouldn't expect food, especially on Thai Smile which I think is the economy version of regular Thai Air, but they had very neat pre packed snack bags with Shu Mai. Efficient staff, always love flying Thai Air."
Pros: "The flight was on time, boarding and disembarking was easy and the staff was very friendly."
Pros: "The staff and service were friendly and excellent. Flight was fast and efficient."

Cons: "Staff was rude"
Cons: "Was a short flight. It was all well done."
Pros: "The crew team was very nice, a inflight meal was offered and baggage arrived within 10 minutes of being off the plane."

Pros: "Small plane but wasn't full. No one sat in seat next to me. Friendly attendants."

Cons: "I wish someone had told me that gate A8 was so far from A6 and closer to A1"
Pros: "On time and lots of room with plane about 30% full."
Cons: "Good poor."
Pros: "Wonderful service, great food, helpful, on time! A+ airline!!"
Pros: "Full service (with meal) on 1 hour flight!"
Pros: "Staff was polite and there was good food provided even though it was only an hour-long flight. Overall, it was a good experience. Not an exemplary flight, but I would fly with them again if the occasion arose."
Cons: "Plane was a bit older and more outdated than I expected for a "boutique airline." Seats were not entirely uncomfortable, but I'm not sure I would enjoy them for a longer flight. No entertainment provided, but I wouldn't expect there to be for such a short flight."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Aircraft was clean. Hot meal on short (1 hour) flight was a pleasant surprise."
Cons: "Bangkok terminal is a real greenhouse. It can be quite hot. Few food options in terminal; it is all (upscale) shopping. Boarding delayed 30 minutes without any announcements. Seat pitch is shortest I have ever seen. Tall people (>6') would not be comfortable in economy class."
Pros: "Everything was well organized and on time. Food was delicious!"
Pros: "Flight is comfortable"
Cons: "They changed the gate and they were too far. Took a while to go back. No proper information"
Pros: "I was so surprised that food was provided for a 45 min flight. The crew was quick. The flight from BKK to Siem was on time, even although there was a last minute gate change. I couldn't comment on entertainment was the flight was so short. The crew was very polite, friendly and efficient. They were as good as any business class service crew."
Cons: "Another surprise was the excess weight of my luggage. I did get the warning about 20kg limit on this flight on the itinerary, but I hadn't paid much attention to it. I travel internationally quite often and know that 40 or 50kg is the norm. I was charged $8 /kg for 24kg overweight. This end up costing twice as much as the round trip flight. Now, I have to pay similar amount on the return flight. I take photographs from the airplane and found the window to be scratched."
Cons: "The flight attendants could have been more courteous and helpful."
Cons: "I missed my flight because of kayak."
Cons: "I'd heard Bangkok Airways was the best boutique airline in Asia so I was a little disappointed. There was no vegetarian food option, blink and you missed the drink service, the plane was quite old stock but comfortable enough. Boarding wad a little confusing - multiple flights called to the same gate at the same time and not particularly good signage about what do when you got there. Having said that, the staff were be mentally polite and tried to be helpful and that they attempted any kind of service on the 40min flight from Bangkok to Siem Reap was laudable. Still better than some experiences I've had on Ryanair or Eurowings in Europe."
Pros: "Easy boarding, on time, and friendly crew."
Pros: "Pretty smooth flight, nice and helpful staff"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by almost an hour"
Cons: "I bought a ticket from kayak but the third party have canceled my ticket due some security credit card reasons, But kayak never alert me of the cancelation and in the day of the flight i paid 3times more just to buy another ticket ,"
Pros: "They do a great job - a meal that was pretty good served on a 55 minute flight. Very friendly staff. The seats weren't as comfortable as you'd hope but they were not awful. They codeshare with all of one world except American."
Cons: "All staff at airport and airplane need to relax just a bit"
Pros: "Cabin crew"
Cons: "Flight delay"

Pros: "Flight attendant service is spot on, quick and most of all, very friendly!!"
Cons: "As for this particular flight, I wished they offered a premium economy class. It’s like your either rich or poor...economy or business class. To upgrade on this flight was $1850 each leg!!"
Pros: "Crew good. Seat better than airbus seats!"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Food was more than pathetic, service was horrible and flying experience was very poor. Everything could be better"
Pros: "The crew did an excellent job."
Cons: "The plane was broken. Old. I paid for business and they couldn’t even allow business to board first. On screen entertainment was broke. Seats were broken. The seats DO NOT fold flat in business. Not a good experience, do not recommend. Fly Singapore airlines if possible, Thai airways just doesn’t have it together- plus it’s relatively the same price with way better amenities and experience"
Cons: "Seat had no stowing compartmentand no magazine pocket"
Pros: "The crew were very accomodating and hospitable."
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Open bar! Drink all you can! :D"

Pros: "Thank you to a lady crew who acceded to our request for change of seats"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good entertainment options"
Pros: "I didn’t like the seat belt it looks like a car seat belt not comfortable. The food and the service was excellent"
Cons: "The WiFi"
Cons: "The TV on seat 55A was really hard to see and brightness would keep reverting back to low. Entertainment systems need to be freshened up."

Pros: "Well done to all the crews."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room"
Pros: "Plane was nice."
Cons: "Food was horrible"
Pros: "Short flight but full service with flat bed business class, was not expecting that!"
Pros: "Boarding and food was ok, staff friendly"
Cons: "Poor communication about delay, old entertainment system"
Cons: "The plane was a very old B777-300 and the air conditioning did not work so the whole flight was very warm. The cabin in general was very dated and cramped. Having flown the A350 to Bangkok which was newer and much better, did not see why they couldn’t operate the flight back on the same platform"
Pros: "Just like on previous domestic flight experience, I love how Thai Airways is able to promote and provide for customer comfort and service on such short flights - something that US airlines are so incapable of providing. Not only was the plane comfortable and spacious, the fact that they also served a meal on such a short flight is so much appreciated."
Pros: "Service was great, food options were good. I have no complaints."
Cons: "I have not complaints about this trip."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff. I was carrying medication that needed to be in a cool box. A flight attendant provided me with ice cubes wrapped in plastic bag and paper towel. She checked with me from time to time to ensure that the medication was kept in the proper temperature during the flight. That was first class service and I couldn't thank her enough."
Cons: "Seat is too narrow and the recline is not ergonomically designed, in short, uncomfortable. The entertainment portal is not user friendly. Food quality and variety seem to have declined."
Pros: "The flight was awesome, the food was delicious and the delay was shot"
Pros: "Good service and kind staff."
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn't working and the crew didn't reboot it until half way through the flight. Any amount of movement from the seat in front of me (either from a slight adjustment from the person sitting in front of me to turbulence) and the tv would go black for a few seconds. It would also change to a red hue from time to time."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Pros: "Great and friendly people, and was very nice. Great flight."
Cons: "In flight meal was ok. Other than the meal it was nice flight."
Pros: "Nice plan, nice crew, left on time"
Cons: "Please offer a vegetarian option for the snack"
Pros: "Attentive staff that managed to squeeze a quick food service on a short flight."
Cons: "Airstewardess was had a fake friendliness. Like they'd smile and say yes to the request and nothing happens and need to call them again. And another stewardess takes the request and same thing happens finally when they do come back with the blanket and new request for headphones its with the worse face ever. Jesus"
Pros: "We took off at 11.30 on time but only arrived at 3.45 pm. No idea why it took so long on the positive side: I saw my movie till the end and it was an excellent one"
Cons: "Special screenings in singapore of all luggage: took more than 1 hour to get out"

Pros: "On time, friendly staff"
Pros: "They provided metal cutlery for the meals (in plastic wrapping, just like with disposable plastic forks and such), which seemed like overkill but added a tiny touch of premium feel."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment system is kind of archaic, but it works."
Pros: "On this return flight, we had much space than several days ago. Thus, I enjoyed working all night during this midnight flight."
Cons: "The food was OK, but there should be some snack for awaken passengers."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Crew were not patient or too helpful."
Pros: "I like the way the FA treats me very well and I was in economy class but feels like Business Class."
Pros: "Food and drink on board in business class."
Pros: "The crew and food were awesome."
Cons: "The Air conditioning on the plane was lacking. There was no direct-able air vent and the plane was fairly warm for the whole of the flight. The video screen were very dim and hard to see."
Cons: "The service was not that great. Normally the staff is very attentive but they lacked in service this time and I am not an attention seeker. (In all the flight I ask for their presence 1-2 times for water) Who knows why. Got served the wrong plate and drink."
Pros: "Fast in flight service and good entertainment options for a short flight."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed about 30 minutes, but that happens with every airline from time to time."
Pros: "Easy check-in, friendly, helpful attendants, on-time departure and arrival.."
Cons: "My seat back wouldn't lock in place. Every time I would move or lean, the seat back would shift. My phone and book wouldn't stay in the pocket in front of me. They would fall out of the bottom and onto the floor. I love Thai food, but food on the flight was not good at all; bland and unappetizing. My foot became pinched hard against the food cart during meal service."
Pros: "Each seat has phone charger!!!"
Pros: "Food was okay and the seats were comfortable. Thats about it"
Cons: "The storage bins for the middle row were so disruptive. Flight attendants were one of the worst I've experienced. They do not smile and speak in a grumpy tone towards some passengers. I even saw one shaking her head in disappointment after talking to an old man who forgot to close the bin overhead. The seat monitor was too susceptible to glare for morning flights."
