Then wait for the previous minibus's crowd to clear then walk another flight of stairs up the plane :( I can accept this from a budget airline but not a commercial airline at a usual well-equipped airport especially when it's at its own home country."
Cons: "I found it a bit odd that there were programs available from Bangkok to Vientiane, but no headphones to listen. I guess it improved my lipreading skills though ;)"
Pros: "The B-class seats are fine."
Cons: "Crew did not offer blankets or earbuds. Dry flight! No beer, wine, or spirits at any price. I was astonished."

Pros: "The in-flight service is better than others."
Cons: "The check-in process at Heathrow is a chaos. I’m not sure who’s responsible, between the Airlines or the Airport. It sholuld arrange separate rows between those already check-in online and the others. I also saw the officials let some (1-5) group of (3-8) people each bypass the long queue, without reasons. The seat and leg space are so narrow that the direct 10+hour- flight is not so comfortable."

Cons: "Bad choice of in-flight entertainment."
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: "Overall, inflight service good except chief purser at the front of the aircraft rather arrogant. Others helpful, on delighting the a/c, ground staff helpful."
Cons: "All ok."
Cons: "Boarding - No announcement regarding boarding, people were unsure when boarding would commence and reason for the delay. Comfort- it was very hot, as temperature control is activated by staff; I asked staff to turn on air conditioning in my area as it was very hot and stuffy, but it was still hot and fairly uncomfortable."
Pros: "return flight on a brand new plane - always helps Excellent movies selection"
Pros: "It was fine"
Cons: "We arrived plenty early at terminal 2 like the confirmation said. Only to find that over night they changed departures to terminal 3. No signs. No one there to give instructions. Just a security guy saying “take sky train “. We had plenty of time so it was more annoying than anything. So we arrive at the gate and the are having a party to inaugurate the new gate and terminal. I’m glad they celebrated. Haha. Got to laugh. The big crowd at the celebration were passengers who were delayed bordering so they could have a celebration. Part of the adventure."

The head of Boarding crew told before the flight they would ask for a volunteer to exchange seat. They never did A German speaking Thai Disablef persons are not in Bulkhead. I am partially deaf.all the bulk head sits were given to Thai. The food were unpalatable.The worst I had.No tooth brushes no snacks in between. I will never fly this horrible airlines."

Pros: "Crew was accommodating, seat space for economy was generous and comfortable for a 2hr flight."
