THAI AIRWAYS OPENS CABIN-LIKE CAFE
Do you miss flying on airplanes? Do you miss the in- flight meals during the flights? Well, you’re in luck because there’s a new restaurant in Bangkok opened by Thai Airways to help make up for some of the lost revenue while their commercial flights still remain grounded with the exception of a few charter flights.
Some dishes that they serve are penne pasta carbonara for 129 baht, chicken tikka with choice of basmati rice or naan bread for 145 baht. They’re currently serving about 2,000 meals a day, which seems to remain for at least the short to medium term based on current demand. According to Thai Airways, the “high quality meals” will continue to be available at the Bangkok HQ from Wednesday to Friday. You can find the full menu on the Thai Airways Facebook page.
The opening day was crowded by locals who apparently really missed flying and in-flight meals. Despite this, the airline is currently going through some restructuring due to mismanagement, bankruptcy proceedings, and the company’s systemic corruption that has been brought to light.

A FUTURE IN REMOTE HEALTHCARE?
A 43 year old patient in Chiang Mai works with a physical therapist via tele-medicine app on a mobile phone, which was developed by the National Health Security Office, NHSO, to assist those patients who cannot leave their homes or avoid hospitals during COVID-19 times. According to NHSO estimates, the amount of patients who need remote healthcare such as the tele-medicine app could increase to over 20 million by 2040. With remote healthcare, long journeys for hospital visits and hours won’t be wasted and hospitals can utilize more space for more patients as well. Healthcare can become more convenient and accessible with these remote apps now utilized more and for the future.
