Plane food is something that frequent fliers would usually be in two minds about. However, the plane-themed cafe at the Thai Airways headquarters in Bangkok is more than just that. The experience begins from the entry itself, which is built in the shape of a runway which is used for boarding planes. To visit the restaurant, customers need to book in advance and download a ‘boarding pass’ too.
Airplane attendants in their uniform greet visitors to the restaurant. The cafe has airplane seats for its customers and tables made with old parts of airplane engines. There is also an option between ‘economy’ and ‘business’ class seating. As for the menu, it comprises all the in-flight options as part of the dining experience. Food is served in plastic trays with a variety of dishes on offer such as spaghetti and Caesar salad.
