Royal Jordanian (RJ) flies three times a week between its home base of Amman and Kuala Lumpur. The airline also flies three/four times a week to Hong Kong. All flights go via Bangkok, providing daily connections between Amman and the Thai capital. Flights depart around 0200, arriving in Bangkok the following afternoon, and in either Kuala Lumpur or Hong Kong in the early evening. Here at RASK, we’ve always loved the Royal Jordanian livery – so, were we in for a stylish flight…?
Unfortunately Crown Class passengers don’t get priority boarding, meaning a ten-minute wait to get on to the plane – irritating if you’ve paid for top service – but once on board, I was greeted warmly by the female Maître de Cabine.
