Airline reviews Thai Airways Inflight drink

Thai Airways inflight drinks and bar

On Thai Airways all wine, beer and spirits, are free.

All wine in economy comes in 187ml bottles. In business it is served out of full sized bottles.

Thai airways operate as a dry airline on domestic flights, and there is no inflight bar. Indeed, if you want a pre-flight drink in the Business Class lounge, it is worth going to the international lounge in places like Chang-Mai, which still has a bar, rather than the domestic lounge, which is also dry.

Economy Class Wine - Thai Airways inflight drinks

Rheinhessen Qualitatswein or Blue Nun

Blue Nun

Joke wine!

This wine is famous, some would say notorious, for a series of TV adverts in the UK in the 1980s, which got the masses drinking wine for the first time... sales rocketed, until everyone discovered real wine. It disappeared from shelves in the UK in the 1990s, however there is still a market for this stuff. On Thai Airways.

Theroetically Rheinhessen Qualitatswein, this is foul jet fuel, so sweet it makes your tongue curl up, this is only suitable for taking off as a souvenir, and never opening!


Sparkling Wine Henkell Trocken

Sparkling Wine

The bottle looks great, a really classy bottle, which is only served in business, although the foil top over the metal screw top looks a bit odd.

The Sparkling Wine is very sweet, not really the best mix of grapes, but still worth quite drinkable. It is specially bottled for Thai Airways in Wiesbaden.

Fleur de Sparkling Wine

Mc Sparkling Wine

Ask for bubbly at 35,000 feet, and Thai serve this. The cheapest Sparkling Wine money can buy, even the label looks as if it should have Happy Shopper on it. Has a bizarre dried biscuit aroma, which is apparently a selling point!


White Jokay Pinot Gris Vin D'Alsace

Smoked peach flavours

Goodness, this wine is bad. Smell the smoke - or as the menu puts it, smocked flavrs! Only suitable in an emergency, or if the beer has run out.


Beer - Thai Airways inflight drinks

There is the same selection of beer in business and in economy. In business you'll get a glass tumbler to put it in. In economy its plastic. Chang


Heavyweight elephant beer

Chang is much heavier than the lightweight Singha. This lager is on the verge of being a bitter.

3.6% singha


Lovely light and delicate

The finest beer made in Thailand. Its the usual selection of hops and malt making lager, which makes a mighty fine beer, and it goes down very smoothly. This creation of the Boon Rawd Brewery Co is much stronger than you may think.

Watch out for the specially branded Thai Airways cans, with pictures of Thai destinations on the reverse.

6% Carlsberg


Very tame

Its the usual dull stuff you get on the ground.


Gin and Tonic

Gin and Tonic Good cocktails served in minitures

Ask for a Gin and Tonic, and you'll be in for a treat. The Gin and Tonic variant comes with a large miniture for Bombay Saphire Gin, and a mini can on Kinley tonic water. All stired around with a strange Thai Airways "stick".

There is enough in the can and bottle for two servings. If you are in business, you will get a real glass glass.
