Thai Airways : BKK - BLR Y Cabin (with Pics)

Posted (4 years 6 months 5 days 14 hours ago) and read 19877 times:

After spending 3 months in Sydney, on my return to India I decided to spend the Valentines weekend in Bangkok. I have transited through BKK several times, but never ever actually got down to visit the city. An excellent offer from Holiday Inn prompted me to make a 2 day stopover in the Thai capital and that is one decision I would never ever regret!! Bangkok goes straight upto number 1 on my fav cities list!!  

This TR covers the TG flight from BKK to BLR which was the last leg of my journey from SYD.


I caught a cab from the Holiday Inn @ Silom and was driven to the airport by a pro-Thaksin driver, who did not miss a single opportunity in telling me what Thaksin did for the country and how badly Thailand needs him. Suvarnabhumi being a prime example and that nobody else in Thailand had the guts to do something like that.

His Highness The King of Thailand welcoming you to Suvarnabhoomi.

Check in was a quick affair. Two islands dedicated for TG.Although my baggage was a tad over the limit, the agent let it go through  

This was my first time checking in at BKK and the check in area seemed a lot cramped. It did not have the airy feeling of KUL or the vastness of SIN.


TG Check in Counters


J and H reserved for TG


Demons overlooking the check in area.  
CCTV view of the immigration area giving u an idea of the queues ahead. Good one.

Immigration and Security did not take much time. An Israeli couple next to me were arguing with the security over the lady's bottle of perfume. Her arguement was that although the size of the bottle was more than 200ml, the actual content was less than 100 and that TLV security had no problem with it!!   But I was impressed by how stern yet courteous the Thai security lady was.

On to the Giant Shopping Mall a.k.a Suvarnabhoomi International Airport  
The Sagar Manthan (Churning of the Ocean) from Hindu Mythology. Ok here is a snap quiz - spot atleast two differences between the Indian and Thai version!!  
The duty free plaza


A pic of the various Royals from across the world. For some reason I like this pic  
Duty free shops seem to be taking over most of BKK's floor space. New duty free outlets replace the earlier security check area.


The FIDS.


Chinese New Year celebration at BKK.

Since I had some time to kill and was not looking forward to any duty free shopping, I headed to Mango for a quick bite, topped off with my fav - Sticky Rice with Mango  
Is it just me, or have they cut down on the lighting @ BKK. Large sections of the airport (including our gate)were in the dark.


The F concourse from where most flights to India were scheduled to depart that night - incl 9W, AI and TG.


The invasion of duty free outlets continue!! New ones in what used to be the erstwhile sterile zone.


Pax waiting for the delayed AI/IC flight to BOM. You can see a coupla AI aunties gossiping in there  
TG 325 will be departing from gate F6 today.


A really bad shot of the A330 tht will take me across the Bay.


A slightly better one.

Judging by the amount of people in the waiting area it was going to be a full flight.

One peculiar aspect of the TG flight to BLR is the abundance of "Group travellers" on any day. All the TG flights that I have taken between BLR and BKK have always been filled with sundry Indian tourist groups - usually a company taking out their dealers/distributors , a film crew or a package tour group. Usually identifiable by the same t-shirt worn or by a small lapel pin attached. Each group usually consists of a smart alec, who has been on a similar trip before and is showering the others with his precious words of wisdom - which usually is a load of BS (and I just noticed I used an unusually high number of "usually"!!) !! A gem tht I overheard this time around - "Indian Airlines and Jet Airways have "small flights" which cannot cross the sea, thats why you should travel in Thai"!!  

Most pax had splurged on duty free and the agents at the gate were having a tough time getting people to check in oversized cabin bags. A particular Remote controlled Helicopter toy seems to have been on sale, since almost 60% of the people on board were carrying one such. People travelling in groups were busy dividing liquor bottles into two liter quotas!!  
Reflection of our gate area


Excess cabin baggage.  

As mentioned earlier parts of the gate seemed to be poorly lit, as visible in the pic above.

Boarding was delayed by about 15 minutes, but no reason was provided. As soon as boarding was announced "ILBST" kicked in with full gusto!! (All copyrights to ILBST reside with Alex   )


ILBST in action.

The TG agents at gate did their best to control the flow of pax and were quite efficient at that.


Walking down the jet bridge. I like this part of BKK.

Flight : TG 325
Date : Feb 14, 2010
Sector : BKK - BLR
Seat : 49 B
A/C Registration : TS - (A330)
Load Factor - 100%.

At the door we were greeted by a male and female f/a , with the traditional Thai greeting. I headed to my aisle seat way down the Airbus.


The mandatory knee shot.

Boarding was a mess.People still holding onto oversized cabin baggage and duty free bags, the F/As had an horrendous time settling everyone in. Another male F/A did the rounds confirming all special meal requests.


Seats across the aisle.


Pax with oversized bags as a TG F/A looks on.

I took this time to head to the rear galley for a glass of water and found an empty galley, with a bottle of water and some glasses, which i helped myself too.


The rear galley , neat and clean!! Any idea what lies behind those closed doors?


Pax finally settled down!! i luv the TG cabin color scheme!!

The pushback was delayed by 15 minutes and the captain came on air to inform us of the routing and flight info. He said tht since flight conditions are favorable we should be able to make up for lost time.

The take off roll was slow and quiet and soon we were on our way across the Bay to India, in an almost straightline course!!

Once the seatbelt signs were switched of the TG F/As sprung into action. First came the drinks trolley with a bag of nuts.


The drinks trolley

Soon F/As were whizzing past through the aisle with SPMLs. The meal service after that had two options - Indian Veg and Thai Chicken. I opted for the chicken.


Dinner - Thai Chicken - with mushroom and chicken salad and Sticky Rice Cake for desserts.

The cabin crew came around for drinks after the meal cart.

Another peculiar habit of the Group traveller is their affinity for Whisky and to a lesser extent beer. There is something abt the Indian drinking habits which is biased towards dark liquor. White spirit like Gin, Vodka etc just doesnt cut it!! TG F/As on this route are routinely harassed by the pax for more whisky and beer in a not so pleasant language. I have seen novice F/As comply to these requests only to be reprimanded by their seniors in the galley!!

Another interesting feature about TG is the after dinner Cognac round - a spirit yet again not very popular in India.

Once the trays were cleared, the cabin lights were dimmed, The F/As came around with towels and landing cards.


F/A distributing towels


The "invention of lying" playing on the OHP. No personal IFE on board the 330 to BLR.

Tired from all the roaming around in Bangkok city on a hot day, i soon dozed off for rest of the flight. I was woken up by the F/A just before landing at BLR.

The landing itself was a bit bumpy. We soon taxied to a gate that was just vacated by SQ. The only other action at that time was an AI 319 preparing for a flight to SIN.


Pax disembarking


The forward Y cabin


Farewell my bird!!


Taking the escalator upto the immigration hall

Stone sculpture welcoming pax at BLR.

The H1-N1 check at BLR seems to have been discontinued and we headed straight for immigration, which took abt 10-12 mins. Following which we went through the scanning of handbags and headed down to collect our baggage.


Luggage from TG 325 at Belt 6


Another peculiar feature of most BKK flights to India - LCD TVs. I counted atleast 20 on this flight until my baggage came in. Any idea what is the difference in cost between Thailand and India?


The dutyfree at the arrivals section in BLR.


The Arrival Hall @ BLR (Common for domestic and international arrivals)


Outside the arrivals. A far cry from the jungle that used to greet pax at the old HAL airport!!

My cab driver was waiting for me outside and soon I was on my way home after 3 long months!!  
The BIAL bus bay - Air Conditioned volvo coaches to the length and breadth of Bangalore city, given that the new airport is almost 30 kms beyond the northern edges of the city. This is one excellent facility that has been started and maintained at BIAL.


Surprised to see coupla Airavats at the bus bay. Have they started inter-city services to BIAL? Maybe from Mysore?!
The Red buses in the pic before are the intra-city buses that run within Bangalore city. The white one, usually operates the inter city services.

Thank you for the trip review.
Such an informative one with all necessary photos.  

Not that I have attitude towards some particular passengers, but I'd like to speak from my experiences.
I found that most passengers from some area do like to request "a cup of water" as soon as they settle down on their seats.

I always feel the same way as those passenger, "very thirsty", after been waiting at the gate for almost an hour.
But I try to manage myself and I'm not really in the mood to "request" anything before take off knowing that F/As are busy with pre-take off procedures. Am I being to nice as a passenger? Should I just request whatever I want?

And yet, I noticed the non-stop-alcoholic-beverages-requests-saga throughout the flight!! I am not going to comment on this one but I'd like to ask fellow travellers if they have experience the same situations like mine?

I know that drunk threshold for each person is different, but would F/As still be courteous if suddenly they say "I can't serve you anymore, I need to save some for the rest of passenger? I've been serving you way too much free alcoholic drinks even though you are not yet drunk?

No wonder why some airlines have turned to just-"one"-free-alcoholic-beverage serving.

Thanks again.

Hi Justbala!

Very nice Trip Report. I do not think it is very common to see a TG report in Economy!

The service seems great, and the meal tray was very nicely presented, with what seemed to be a very tasty main dish! ..

I have always loved the TG color scheme of their cabin interiors, and i find the color selection more tasteful than MH's smarties dubbed theme.


Thanks for sharing!

Cheers,
Roni

I totally agree what you said.

Especially OP mentioned he went to the galley to take photos, he found a bottle of water and glasses, then pour himself one, that seems to be rather selfish.

Galley items should never be touched whatever it is, whenver there is no FA inside especially before takeoff or after landing. The water bottle maybe an extra one for C pax, it could be for FA to be consume, etc, you never know. That's why somtimes I heard they actually have the lock everything in their carryon, cannot leave one single item inside the galley or it would have been stolen from pax.

No, you are not being too nice, you are just being considerate, thinking for others. Even just one person make the effort to be nicer, the world would become a little better.

Yes - there is a real love for the whisky in India. The funniest sign I saw in India was a roads sign which read' After Whiskey, Driving Risky!' but there was also 'Use Horse-power, not Rum-power'! That said, every Indian Whiskey I tasted was pretty vile... there are some good ones I believe but I am glad the finest palettes select Scottish Whiskys!

When we buy a plane ticket nowadays we are often buying into what the service will provide; for many this is a complimentary bar and I find this totally acceptable. Its a service you have paid for. You should feel free to use it but understand the boundaries of abusing it. FA's are well trained to identify if a person is over-indulging and are even often a little overzealous... If they suspect this they'll often suggest a break in consumption - its their right to refuse service... Of course some abuse the system, but it shouldn't be retracted from all others...

The OP is anything but selfish - he went to find an FA at the back because he was thirsty and was resourceful enough to pour his own. This bottle was no doubt placed conveniently for when pax ask for a glass before take-off. Think you may have misinterpreted?

- Agreed, we flew out of there tuesday morning, the entire airport check-in system crashed for about 20 minutes or so, the queues were really starting to block the walkways, hate to be there on a really busy day!

The food TG provided you looked pretty decent & quantities looked good too.

Couldn't agree more with this. Galley items, when not informed by F/As, should never be touched. It could have been something else apart from purified water. And who will take the responsibility if pax get sick? I believe TG does not provide pre-take-off-self-service any flights, any where.

Same thing, you don't walk around in an unfamiliar place, grab and drink anything in sight.

However, when seated in premium class cabin, pre-take off beverages considered a norm. Still, you don't walk to the galley and pour yourself a glass of Champagne, water, wine, juices etc.

Thanks for clarifying that lukeyboy95. My intent while going back was for a glass of water and not to take pics, please read the TR carefully again. The bottle of water was a large one, already opened and abt 25% used. So obviously not meant for a C pax. Its probably the equivalent of a galley bar that is common on LH/ULH flights. I do not see how I was being selfish by not disturbing F/As who were struggling to get pax to cram in their oversized bags and settle down.

Samsung 40" in SIN = INR 28K, vs. INR 45K for the same thing in BLR. Customs duty - INR2000 and can be negotiated for less.

The problem with Indian Whiskeys is that they're all made from some part molasses (a by product of our huge sugar industry) and not entirely from grain (in fact some of them taste like it's all molasses). That's what makes Indian Whiskeys taste so "vile". However properly drunk the Indian way - with the glass topped up by soda (sparkling water with a lot of sparkle) and lots of ice, the "heavy/vile" taste is somewhat subdued by the effervescence of the soda

Haha - yes indeed. When I drank my gin I would top it up with Limca normally. I never seemed to get the luxury of ice! Its only the cheap ones that are awful - it has been widely recognised that the better brands can hold their own against the big boy Whisky/ey countries - which are the good brands again? Three Pipers!?

Yes - once you've added, you can basically forget about the flavors of the Gin - given the strong taste of Limca  .

I'm not sure about the "best Indian Whiskies", but the better ones here are typically scotch whisky - though maybe bottled in India...

Good report, justbala!

It is really strange to see the uneven lighting at Suvarnabhumi Airport. I understand that they have used energy saving lighting (allowing for more natural lighting during the day), but it looks pretty gloomy at night.

The TG A333 cabin looks colourful, but the lack of PTVs makes it feel quite dated.

Excellent trip report  
I've gone to the galley quite a few times to pick up a bottle of water during boarding. And I've always made sure none of it was meant for J class passengers. I don't like using the call bell when the FA's have more important things to do.
