As part of the 50th Anniversary celebration , Thai Airways is going to recreate its historic first flight on the Bangkok – Hong Kong route on 1st May 2010, with a special in-flight menu, souvenirs, and onboard activities. Passengers taking this nostalgic trip will be flown on a Boeing 747-400 repainted in the original livery design. The cabin crew will also be outfitted in uniforms from that period.
The airline is offering a special Royal Orchid Holidays package tour for customers wishing to experience this event. Anniversary souvenirs include Commemorative Postage Stamps and the original-designed THAI boarding pass.
The support staff were very helpful. Sudham and Lakpa were by far the best guide and porter we have come across on the trek. They really made my trek something to remember.
