From August through to October 2019, passengers travelling with Thai Airways International Public Company (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 the airline and Menya Itto Ramen Bangkok, a branch of the famous Ramen restaurant in Japan.
Sudhiratr Siriplanond, acting vice president of in-flight services department in THAI said: “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 Ramen restaurant in Japan to serve special Ramen prepared by Chef Yukihiko Sakamoto, an owner of Menya Itto Restaurant.”
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 flavour.
