Hello everyone!

For those who have read my recent TR, Royal Jordanian: KUL-BKK-KUL, I did mentioned about a joyride to Phuket (HKT) which I will now share.

It was a last minute decision to book a flight to HKT. The night before flying, I was at an internet cafe searching for reasonably priced flights and found an outbound flight for THB 1750 (USD 57 / EUR 40) on Orient Thai Airlines and an inbound flight for THB 2880 (USD 94 / EUR 66) on Thai Airways.


My Orient Thai Experience


Flight: OX 8223
Route: Bangkok (DMK)-Phuket (HKT)
Departure: 1500
Arrival: 1625
Aircraft: MD-82

The easiest way to get to DMK would be to take a taxi but I wanted some adventure so I chose to take the train instead. I decided on that decision as it would only cost me THB 5 instead of a few hundred Bahts if I were to take the taxi. Now, that's a lot of THB saved!


I boarded the train at Hua Lamphong Railway Station and it was a good 1hr+ train ride before I reached Don Mueang Station



Don Mueang Station



Walking up the ramp towards the overheard bridge which led you to the international terminal (which is no in use)



After crossing the overhead bridge, there was a good 1.5km walk before you reach the domestic terminal


Check-in was quick and efficient.The agent was extremely courteous and I could sense that the journey ahead was going to be a pleasant one! I was also glad to learn that OX doesn't charge you for checked baggage under 20KG! They even serve free snacks and drinks! Now that's many brownie points for a budget airline!   


Check-in desks belonging to Orient Thai Airways. The other airlines operating from DMK are Nok Air and Solar Air



The flight was delayed for more than an hour but I had no qualms about that.



My boarding pass


To be honest, I did not know what type of plane OX had in their fleet. I was expecting the usual B737 but I was extremely surprised when I saw an MD-82 smiling at me as it pulled into Gate 63!   This is really special for me because we rarely get to see MDs around in SIN!

The flight

Sawadee ka / Sawadee krap! At the entrance of the plane, a cabin crew greeted me with a typically-Thai [i]wai/[i] greeting that involved placing the palms together and simultaneously bowing the head slightly while politely . As I walked through the aisle, the remaining cabin crew members did the same too!

As the last few passengers were entering the aircraft, the pilot gave an announcement apologising for the slight delay which was not elaborated on further. As soon as all the last passenger settled into his seat, the cabin crew prepared themselves for the safety demonstation which was done the old fashioned way!  

And this is how you put on your oxygen mask.



Signs.



Push it...



...and it pops open!



Soon enough, we were airborne.


Cabin service proceeded once the seatbelt signs were switched off


Each passenger received a snackbox



It consisted of a tuna pie and green tea-sufficient for a short flight.


I decided to do a little exploring.. So lets start with the toilet..


WOW!



The level of comfort when doing your 'business' here is far beyond any expectation!



Signs on the toilet door.



Cabin during flight.



Awesome legroom!



A very good-looking set of crew.



Here's the final crew member.


Prior to landing in HKT, the cabin crew lined the aisle and presented the passengers with a final [i]wai as the purser gave a short thank you speech.  

And the journey ended with a picture of my in the cockpit! That's a first for me!

My Thai Airways Experience

I will be posting more pictures instead of descriptions for this 2nd part.


Flight: TG202
Route: Phuket (HKT)-Bangkok(BKK)
Departure: 1000
Arrival: 1130
Aircraft: B747-400

I flew back to BKK the very next morning on TG! This was my virgin flight on TG so I was pretty much excited and looking forward to the experience.   During check-in, I had specifically requested for a window seat at the rear of the plane and the agent gave me seat 55A.


My boarding pass.



A true beauty smiling back at me!

The Flight


The load in Y was


I had the whole row to myself!



That's me in my seat.




The headrest cover with TG logo.



Takeoff from HKT was simply stunning!



You don't need PTVs with fancy systems when you have a beautiful sky to look at out of your window



Snackbox



It consisted of orange juice, chicken burger and a yummy fruit cake.



View of the cabin during flight.



Making our way into BKK



That's me with a cabin crew.


TG definitely have one of the most genuinely polite and caring cabin crew.


It was a wonderful experience flying with TG and I will definitely fly with them again in the future!

It was interesting reading as I will soon fly to HKT and BKK via SIN. I have been flying a lot around Thailand but never tried OX, looks a great LCC.

Indeed!

True, Thai people generally are like that, polite and friendly. I was just checking the TG flights from HKT to BKK, very tempting business fares there.

Hey Mustafa!

A wonderful rendition of one of the most popular domestic flight in Thailand, the land of a million smiles! It must feel great to fly on the MD-80 since we do not get them at SIN and they are an "endangered" type now. Orient Thai looks pretty solid for the short flight though sometimes the safety record can make me think twice about flying on them.

Service on TG was as usual great with smiles from the cabin crew and their 744s are surely something to savour while they're still here for years to come!

Regards,
Daniel

Yes, they have some veteran MD-82s (mostly former CO birds) - but they also have two (relatively young, 1993-built) MD-81s once operated by JAL. And since there are Japanese words and signs in the cabin I guess you had one of these - which are even rarer birds! Never forget to write down the registration!

It seems you had a nice flight on TG. I was a bit disappointed when I flew TG for the first time last year. If you are interested:

Hi Mustafa,

Looks like a couple of decent flights and quite a contrast in machines flown.

OX looked pretty good here, I never expected free food offerings, I thought they were the pack them in and charge them to breath type of airline, I'm proven wrong!

Cheers

Hello Mustafa,

Thank you for both reports. Both are great, your OX report reminded me my OX flight on January 1st this year:

Indochina Trip 2/9: Orient Thai DMK-CEI / MD-82 (by EL-AL May 2 2011 in Trip Reports)

OX is indeed a hidden gem in the aviation world - a low fares airline with full fare service, and damn good one.

I boarded the train at Hua Lamphong Railway Station and it was a good 1hr+ train ride before I reached Don Mueang Station

Oh, that's why it's so cheap    but if you're not in a hurry, why not?

Quoting moosecamel88 (Thread starter):
After crossing the overhead bridge, there was a good 1.5km walk before you reach the domestic terminal

Damn, didn't know it was that long. Why don't they move the train and bus station? it's very unpleasant to walk this distance with luggage in the Bangkok heat.

The TG flight looks also nice, always fun to make short flights on a big plane, with the 747 always the best.

The 'In & Out' label on the box is mis-leading and a very cruel joke for those of us from California.   
In & Out burger is a chain of some of the best char-broiled burgers and they serve fresh cut french fries. To us aviation spotters, there is a popular one next to the runway at LAX.
Excellent for spotting and eating their famous double-double cheese burgers.
Looking at that box makes one to think there is a double-double inside but there isn't. The nearest In & Out is 16,000 kilometers away.

What an experience it must be for you to have a taste of the MD-82 and the B744 on a domestic route in Thailand! Most wonderful indeed! Who knows how long will these planes be flying for much longer. I am most glad you took a leap and booked this trip impromptu! 4630 THB is a steal considering this experience is indeed priceless!

Thank you once again, for bringing us through this remarkable experience of Thai hospitality onboard!

Hi, I never had problems... As the crew noticed that I would be a "spotter" on tour, I was invited to join the flight deck. The Latin American guys in their office (I think of Venezuela?!) were great, we had a lot of fun- inclusive a missed approched!

Just follow the steps via http://www.flyorientthai.com/en/international . Don't try to send an e-mail, it's always better to visit their office. Unfortunately, all exotic B747's (like -100) are out of service. For the moment, it seems the air bridge is be flown with ex JAL B743 or ex CX B744.

Off-topic: are you doing business in Korea as well?! I am still looking fwd for the first TR of BUSINESS AIR THAILAND- http://www.businessaircenter.com . Maybe exotic enough for you?!
