Thai Airways | Royal Orchid Plus - Economy meals served back to front?
May 9, 11, 3:30 am
I don't fly TG that much but I noticed on two of my flights (HKG-BKK and BKK-NRT) that meals in Economy were served from back to front only on the left side of the plane. The right side was served front to back.
This doesn't happen on all flights but since I've got a few trips on TG coming up I'd like to ask those on this forum if this is the standard meal serving procedure for TG or does it just happen randomly?

BKK-FRA-BKK / 7473 / Y: Front to back, both aisles.

It seems to be rather inconsistent.
HKG-BKK - 7442 - back to front
BKK-DPS - 7443 - front to back
(forgot about DPS-BKK)
BKK-HKG - A330 - back to front

I'm amazed no one knows anything about this. Here is the "official" answer from a friend at TG:
Our procedure depends on meal and aircraft type.
If we serve breakfast, we start from each galley. Normally we have 2 galleys(in Economy Class) -front and back. That means the front galley will start from the front to middle and the back galley will start from the back to middle.
For lunch and dinner we start from middle to front and middle to back. For example NRT, when we use 777 aircraft so we start from around row 44-45. For HKG, it depends on the aircraft. If we use 333 we start from the middle (lavatory area) back to each galley for lunch and dinner.
It's a pleasure to answer.
This basically explains it all. If you're seated in the front section of Y (Row 31), you will be served last during lunch and dinner since they start from "middle to front", etc.
