From August through to October 2019, passengers travelling with Thai Airways International Public Company Limited (THAI) in Royal First Class and Royal Silk Class can enjoy delicious Japanese Ramen noodles on flights operating between Bangkok and Japan.  This special service is a joint cooperation between THAI and Menya Itto Ramen Bangkok, a branch of the famous Ramen restaurant in Japan.

Mr. Sudhiratr Siriplanond, THAI Acting Vice President, In-flight Services Department, said that THAI made a thorough selection from a wide range of popular restaurants and menus from many countries for our passengers. Recently, THAI cooperated with the No.1 Ramen restaurant in Japan to serve special Ramen prepared by Chef Yukihiko Sakamoto, an owner of Menya Itto Restaurant whose cooking philosophy is to “Make everyone happy and fine thru his Ramen”. 

Chef Sakamoto selected chemical-free ingredients for the Ramen noodles served on board THAI flights, such as sea salt and home-made noodles made from six different types of wheat flour for enhanced texture and flavor. The broth is made from chicken bones, fish and five types of shellfish for tasty flavor. Passengers traveling on the following flights will be able to enjoy Ramen noodles on board THAI:
