New lounge for Thai Air passengers in Hong Kong

New lounge for Thai Air passengers in Hong Kong

Thai Airways has upgraded its Royal Orchid Lounge at Chek Lap Kok Airport in Hong Kong.

The breakfast station now includes new utensils and equipment such as milk dispenser for cereals, the Korinto Expresso Italian coffee-maker in Business Class and Koro Espresso Italian Coffee-maker in First Class.

There is also a dessert station.

A larger variety of food is now being offered, especially at the salad bar corner with healthy menu that includes Thai dishes.

For that touch of Thai, a Thai chef prepares Thai dishes which can be found at the new self-serve food corner. Thai style roasted chicken served with papaya salad is currently the lounge’s signature dish, as well as Tom Kha Kai, a coconut-based spicy chicken soup.

For cold desserts, First Class customers can enjoy the readily available Haagen-Dazs ice cream, while Business Class customers can delight in Dreyer’s Swiss-made ice cream.

Aside from the food and beverage improvements, THAI also installed 72 new sofa-style seats for passenger comfort in the lounge’s trendy and modern atmosphere.

“It’s great that we could meet customer expectations. The lounge has already received positive customer feedback from our premium passengers who send us comments and from regular survey reports,” said Ms. Nonthakorn Trakulpa, THAI’s General Manager of Hong Kong.
