Thailand’s national carrier has stepped up its game over the last year. In 2015, the airline ranked 19th overall, but it picked up the Best Economy Class award. Passengers give the company high ratings for in-flight entertainment, seat comfort (seat recline is a generous 6 inches, with a 32 inch pitch), staff service, value for money, and food and beverage options.
