Thai Airways International (THAI) appears to have finally found a winning formula – Youtiao or deep-fried dough sticks served up with taro custard.

There were long queues of people waiting to sample the treat when airline staff started frying up the treat outside THAI headquarters near Silom Road from 6.30am on Wednesday (September 16).

Every Bt50 serving of three sticks of fried dough with a cup of purple taro custard had been bought up by 9.30am.

This combination is available at the main Puff and Pie outlet on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, at the Or Tor Kor Market outlet on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, and every day at Puff and Pie outlets in Thai Airways’ Rak Khun Thao Fa building and at Don Mueang Airport.

The cash-strapped airline has had to shift its focus to catering now that flights have come to a halt due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
