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."

Pros: "friendly, professional crew"
Pros: "I would highly recommend flying with this airline. It was a very efficient process and the staff was not only helpful but very nice."
Cons: "There's only one down side of this flight. The Lucknow international airport terminal is downright embarrassing. There are four or five desks to handle passport control. That's fine, but none has a label on it as to who should be at which. NonIndians should go to the extreme left one. Then they have one xray machine that all arrivals have to put their carry-ons through while the previous flight is trying to put all their heavy luggage (they are most likely all male workers coming from the Gulf). Then there is a small, rickety belt with everyone crowded around for the luggage. Well, there are two belts, but only one is functional. And to top it off, most of the luggage carts have at least one broken wheel! Amazing and embarrassing when arriving from any terminal almost anywhere! Lucknow, you have a lovely domestic terminal, wake up and build an international one! Shurum ki bat ha!"
Pros: "There was no line to check in and the attendant very easily accepted our luggage to check in with no weight, size, or payment issues Was pleasantly surprised to get a snack box with a sandwich and beverage on such a short flight LOVED the online videos (practical jokes program), where no headphones were needed to enjoy"
Cons: "Fish sandwich wasn't my favorite"
Pros: "The crew was incredibly friendly, warm and helpful. Excellent service on board the aircraft with comfortable seating. And the meal served was delicious! (I never thought I would say that about food served on an airplane)"
Cons: "Boarding process was a bit slow and cumbersome, but, to be fair, I noticed it wasn't much different than all my other flight experiences in Thailand."

Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "40 minute delay"
Pros: "Great service, very amicable staff, excellent plane"
Pros: "Awesome service, great staff, amazing trip"
Pros: "Friendly, well presented staff. It appears that most of the crew on the two Thai Smile flights I was on spoke a bit of English which was a plus. Clean and comfortable seating along with a decent meal."
Cons: "I would have appreciated a vegetarian option for the meal."
Cons: "The crew had a poor attitude and even rude, I asked to move to get past the food trolley as my 4 year old son needed the toilet and they just said wait, they would only have to move 2 metres. We were sitting directly behind upper class but were not offered the chance to use the forward toilet even though there was no one sitting in that section. They seemed to have an attitude problem and not at al like Thai International who are excellent. will never fly again with Thai smile."
Pros: "The cost of upgrading to business class was very reasonable for a flight of that duration. Everything was stellar - service, food, drinks and access to the airport lounge. The meals were among the best I've had on any flight."
Cons: "The guy snoring. His snoring was literally louder than the noise from the jet engines and easily rose to levels that penetrated our noise cancelling headsets!!"
Cons: "I don't want to recommend to others to use this flight following reasons: (1) I can't use Thai lounge with star alliance gold card. (2) Thai air sold the Ticket, but boarding ticket issued by Thai smile. (3) a ground staff ( reissue staff)is unfriendly particularly those who is at Thai office, airport. (4)Thai smile is a low cost air line. So Thai air shouldn't sell this kind of ticket It hurts fame of Thai airs hospitality."
Pros: "Very flight and check-in process"
Pros: "Aircraft size was big for short haul"
Cons: "Not much to dislike"
Pros: "The gate agent saw how tall my husband was and upgraded us to the exit row for more leg room which was awesome. I was feeling a little sick and the flight attendants were great to get me water and make sure I was doing ok."

Pros: "Crew were friendly and did a great job in the short time they had."
Pros: "Check in was so easy and smooth. Boarding was as well!"
Cons: "I appreciated the food that they gave out, but it wasn't very tasty."
Pros: "Overall everything was good except meal option"
Cons: "Not having vegetarian snack or meal"
Cons: "The price. This flight specifically was more expensive than others"
Cons: "The flights were delayed for both times of the round trip from BKK to Phuket and Phuket to BKK. Wasted 2 days as we got stranded in the airport. Unacceptable! Flight to Yangon from Bangkok was cancelled and they didn't send any notification to inform us. Horrible customer service. When transferred the flight to Thai Airways flight we were very rudely treated by the counter agent. For 5 hours of wasted time they "accomodated" us with 350 baht ($10) vouchers and when asked to provide us with free extra bag check-in the manager said sorry we can't do that. No resolution no compromise NO SMILE! Above average airline price with terrible service, expect this to happen to you too."
Pros: "The seat that I picked had lots of leg room."

Pros: "Full service (with meal) on 1 hour flight!"
Cons: "Neither British Airways or my travel agent were able to solve problems created by British Airways 2 delayed flights meaning I could not make the meetings for the trip was planned and therefore I missed the flights and the meetings. Both British Airways and the Travel Agent said the other party were the ones to solve the problem"
Pros: "I’m always impressed that Bangkok Airways serves food on short flights. The chilli chicken was actually not bad."
Cons: "I like to fly with this airline because they offer access to their airport lounge to all passengers. Unfortunately, the lounge at Chiang Mai airport for international departures has closed permanently."
Pros: "Bangkok air is easy to use we love the Airport Lounges free for all passengers."
Cons: "The web site is undependable. It took 3 tray when I booked my tickets, Later We tried to do online check in and pay for extra luggage, (suposed to be a 20% discount) for 3 days before leaving and it would not complete the requests. Kept saying server terminated connection. When I checked at the Airport I told them and they would not do any thing. like extend a discount on extra luggage. Sorry Cannot...... All the Thailairlines play games with extra luggage and sadly it seems BKK Air does now too... Still better then NOK or Air asia"
Cons: "I would like alcohol selection, would pay. See southwests options. Also I don't think I've ever been in a comfortable plane, but I'd like too"
Pros: "Flight was at time."
Cons: "After 13 hours they should give us a worm wet towel to fresh our face"
Cons: "They call themselves Bangkok’s boutique airline but they’re just the same as any cheap asia airline who looks to make it up on extra fees for baggage."
Pros: "BA did give us food vouchers and they have a worn but reasonably stocked lounge at CNX for all their customers. Also provide a meal on a 1 hour flight. Staff is always friendly and courteous."
Cons: "Flight delayed 4 hours, they may have offered options if asked but we decided against asking so others with connections or important plans could do so."

Pros: "The flight was fine and the Bangkok airways flight staff was excellent. I am always impressed by how much food they are able to serve in a short flight"
Cons: "I'm not sure who's fault it is but the baggage service at Bangkok airport was lousy. It took over a half an hour to get the bags out"
Pros: "I loved the service. First of all, they fed us and it was unexpected. The crew was professional, boarding was easy. It was a very enjoyable flight."
Pros: "Price was ok, staff was fine."
Cons: "Boarding process was chaos. They called for certain rows then allowed anyone one without checking. So everyone just got on and there were people all over the aisles by the time I got on. No entertainment. If "boutique" means cheap then the title is correct."
Pros: "Professional, friendly and helpful staff. It was nice to be able to check in baggage without extra charges. I like that you always get served food and drink."
Cons: "The food is ok but not always something I would like to eat. It would nice to have some kind of entertainment system."
Cons: "Our Flight was cancelled and Never recieved an email. Was not told until we arrived at the airport well over 2 hours before our flight. They said all the direct flights had been booked so our 3 hours travel day turned into a 7 hour travel day with two flights and a layover. On top of that, they then lost my friends luggage in the confusion. Hardly helpful with the rescheduling or lost luggage. Only plus was that when it was found it was delivered to our hotel."
Pros: "Attendants etc were friendly and helpful. There was food service, even on a very short flight, and it was good, certainly in comparison to US airlines."
Cons: "The outgoing flight was delayed. You have to take a bus out to the plane or walk, depending on the airport. Actually, that wasn't bad, but did take extra time."
Pros: "Loved the lounges. Appreciated the complimentary food and drinks in both the lounge and during the flight"
Cons: "Food was pretty bad. Plane was kind of old."
Pros: "The crew is always very professional and friendly. The meals were surprisingly good for less than an hour flight. That being compared to other airline meals. The flight from koh samui to bangkok had a complimentary snack and non alcoholic beverage bar that was a nice touch, as well as free wifi while waiting on the flight. The seats have really good leg room (my husband is 6' 5" and his knees had an inch) in economy, which was a very nice break from air china. All our flights were about an hour so can't mention long haul flights but we loved bangkok air so much, will always book them from now on. It is a budget airline but we were very pleasantly surprised."
Cons: "The boarding times usually run about 5-20 minutes later than the ticket says, but take off was right on time so can't complain too much."
Pros: "The crew was nice & everything was fine once we actually got on the plane."
Cons: "We checked in, got misinformed about location by information desk, went to lounge which was great but about 5 minutes before boarding were paged. We then had to go back downstairs & instead of a domestic flight they suddenly changed us to international. Then we had to go through immigration, worried we'd miss flight."
Pros: "They got me on another flight within 15 min. We were met at the arrival gatewith a list of our names, and we all ran to meet the connecting flight including the rep from bangkok airways. Without their help we would have never made our connection."
Pros: "Our flight went very smooth. The crew members were genuine and truly made every effort to make sure everyone was comfortable. Great flight."
Pros: "Turkish air and Bangkok airlines don't like to give boarding passes for each other. So both times we had to go to the transfer desk. This is OK as long as there's time between flights. Bangkok airport is VERY long and the desks are at opposite ends of the airport. The folks at both desks were very helpful though."
Cons: "We had two flights with Bangkok airways. Both were delayed."
Pros: "Amazingly good food. Very comfortable seats."
Pros: "For a discount airline, they had their own lounge and still provide food for a flight that is about 1 hour from CNX to BKK. Things went well."
Cons: "There really was nothing. There was no entertainment per se. Something showed on the monitors but no headphones are provided."
Pros: "Crew Lounge Comfort Service"
Cons: "2nd flight on Bangkok airways in 2 weeks and both were delayed. The lounge makes it bearable."
Pros: "The flight was delayed about 20 minutes. They were very good about keeping us updated. The service was wonderful on board there was no entertainment available on board. The meal was very good."
Pros: "Outstanding staff! Bonus: had a 1 hour 15 minute flight and it included a very unexpectedly good meal at no extra charge!"
Pros: "Everything! Crew, food, seats, etc. For economy it felt prettycomfy"
Cons: "Very crowded"
Pros: "I love that Bangkok Airways provides a lounge with snacks and beverages for all passengers. The sweet cake and coffee in Chiang Mai was excellent, and who doesn't like some pre-flight popcorn?"
Cons: "I didn't realize there were on-flight meals or I would have ordered a vegetarian meal. Not a big deal because they are short flights."
Pros: "Service onboard food"
Pros: "Flight crew attitude was professional and friendly. Food choices were great."
Cons: "Had minor problem boarding. The airport was very crowded. I arrived 4 hours before flight time and had to wait until 2 hours before the flight to check-in. because they were not open. Airport was very crowded with few places to sit. Had to stand most of the time. Passing through security took a long time. The airport being crowded was not the fault of Bangkok Airways. On the plane, the seats were small and I had difficulty with the seatbelt being too small, which made it a little difficult eating the meal. The tray table was broken. I informed a flight crew member and she made a note of it for repairs. I do not remember her name."
Pros: "The crew was amazing! Better than any flight I've taken in the States."
Pros: "Friendly welcoming staff spacious aircraft compared to other airlines; short flight and food served anyhow"
Cons: "Least leg room of any flight I've ever taken."
Cons: "Not much leg room. Make sure they seat your party members together at check-in."
Pros: "Great service, on schedule. The only flight to CNX. I am so happy they got me to CNX."
Cons: "Left early, arrived early! Excellent"
Cons: "Everything was good. In fact, arrived in Bangkok early. What more could I ask for!"
Pros: "Had trouble with Vietjet charging me additional money for a flight change that didn’t go through on their website. Tried to explain it to them at the airport and they didn’t understand. Tried contacting them on their website and still didn’t understand how to fix it."
Cons: "Better policies and a website that works when changing/booking flights"
Cons: "The fees for checked baggage were not clear and they did not state them at all and trying to purchase a checked baggage was impossible to do and frustrating. I had to pay $55 for two bags for an hour flight."
Pros: "Very little leg room"
Cons: "No drinks are offered"
Cons: "Check in was frustrating, to say the least. We had to go upstairs to pay an excess baggage fee, instead of where we checked in. Despite being first in line we had to go to the end of the line because we were in the wrong line. They decided to tell us after the other line formed, not at the time."
Cons: "I believe water should be offered for free, but this airline believes otherwise. I was so dehydrated on this flight and I was told it was 60bahts for water, and I ran out of currency, and they did not even take credit cards."
Cons: "3 hour delay, missed all other flights home"
Pros: "We left 20 minutes before the regular departure time - Chiang Rai international airport is very convenience"
Cons: "the air crew staff were very picky"
