Mr. Pruet Boobphakam, THAI’s Executive Vice President for Commercial, said that  on 1 May 2010 the Company will relive its historic first flight on the route from Bangkok to Hong Kong as part of its 50th Anniversary celebration. During this special “Nostalgic Flight,” passengers will experience THAI’s first flight, as flown 50 years ago on 1 May 1960, but in 2010 will travel on board a Boeing 747-400 repainted in the original livery design, as seen on the DC-6B aircraft in 1960.  

THAI is offering a special Royal Orchid Holidays package tour for customers wishing to experience this event.  Passengers journey into nostalgia will start from the time they arrive at check-in, then on to the in-flight services with specially tailored menu selection.  As well, passengers will receive a collection of THAI’s 50th Anniversary souvenirs that include the Commemorative Postage Stamps and the original-designed THAI boarding pass.   In recreating an atmosphere of nostalgia, THAI cabin crew will also be outfitted in uniforms from that period. 

On the specially prepared menu for passengers on this unique flight, THAI based its food selection on the original menu served on board its first flight to Hong Kong.  First Class first course will consist of Lobster Medallion Bellevue served with Russian Salad in Tomato Crown and Smoked Snapper Marinated with Mustard Sauce served with Thai herbs such as lime wedges, shallot, peanut, ginger, chili slices and spring onion, all together wrapped with betel leaves.  For the main course, first class passengers will feast on Lobster in Chu-Chee Sauce and Braised Cubed Beef Hong Kong Style.  For other passengers, the main course selection includes Prawn in Chu-Chee Curry with steamed Thai jasmine rice served with Thai omelet and stir-fried vegetables or Braised Cubed Hong Kong-Style Beef with Egg Noodles topped with red chili julienne and kalian with oyster sauce.  

THAI will also treat all passengers departing Bangkok on all THAI flights on 1 May 2010 with Golden Crispy Coconut Roll for dessert, which will be served in a special THAI container that passengers can keep as a commemorative souvenir. (Source: TDA)
