Business Class on Thai Airways

Thai Airways is onto something by using the word “Royal” in the names for both its First Class and Business Class levels of service. And there’s no denying the luxury with Thai Airways’ First Class. But if you’re flying Business Class on Thai Airways, don’t think you’re getting the short end of the stick – it’s quite nice all on its own.

Thai Airways’ Business Class, otherwise known as Royal Silk, may not have the seats that recline to fully flat beds, but the seats are still incredibly comfortable and the notoriously fantastic service from Thai Airways’ on-board staff may make you wish you were on a longer flight.
