Thai Airways, Thailand’s national airline carrier, has recently opened a pop-up restaurant serving the airline’s in-flight menu – and its success has led the company to plan to expand with more restaurants

Like many other airlines, Thai Airways has been severely affected by the pandemic. With many of its aircraft still on the ground, the airline filed for bankruptcy earlier in May and plans to go through reconstruction. To recoup some revenue during the pandemic, the airline opened a pop-up restaurant in one of its offices in Bangkok.

The guests have the opportunity to meet cabin crews, who are working with full uniform in the restaurant.

Not surprisingly, the restaurant has an aviation theme. Seats, windows, engines, and other furnishings provide guests with a real feeling of being onboard an aircraft. According to Reuters, all furnishings are labelled with a QR code, enabling guests to scan the code to read more information about each part.

Varangkana Luerojvong, Catering Manager, told Reuters that the restaurant can serve about 2000 meals a day, and there are plans to open up more restaurants with the similar concept in other Thai Airways offices, as the concept has proved to be a success.

According to a press release from Thai Airways, the restaurant is open every Wednesday to Sunday from 9:00 to 14:00 at the headquarters of Thai Airways.

We, the editors at Business Class, sincerely hope that the restaurant concept will remain, so that we too, will have the opportunity to test this once the borders have been reopened.
