As a big aviation junkie, I’ve always been fascinated with the Airbus 380. Both the size and performance of this commercial aircraft are unmatched and I’ve been lucky enough to fly in a few of these giants. This particular flight though is special. This will be the first time I will be flying the A380 in First Class and with Thai Airways nonetheless. My pervious flights on the A380 of Korean Air and China Southern were both in Business Class.
We were the last ones to board the cabin (or the plane for that matter!) so everyone was already settled when we boarded.
Here are some pictures of my throne for the next 12 hours.
I really like the colors that Thai used for this cabin. It’s very soothing and pleasing to the eyes.
I chose Dom Perignon 2003 for my pre departure beverage.
Once in the air, the FAs started with the dinner service. I preordered my meal via the Thai Airways website with their “Book the Cook” program for Royal First Class Passengers. Here’s pictures of the entire meal..
After dinner, I watched some documentaries and travel shows but since it was already so late, I just dozed off. I meant to have my bed made by the FAs before I fell asleep but they were nice enough to cover me up with a blanket since they didn’t want to wake me up.
On that note, the FAs for this flight really provided great service. The First Class cabin was full yet they managed to make you feel like you were the only one there. They were also very personable cracking jokes and making small talk.
After catching up some sleep, I woke up to explore the rest of the plane.
Shortly after, it was time for brekfast!
With about an hour left, we started our descent into Frankfurt Airport.
The FAs gave us A380 playing cards and orchids for our parting gift.
As soon as we landed, there was another Thai representative waiting to escort us through immigrations and into the lounge. This was definitely helpful as FRA is a huge airport and since it was Rac’s first time in Europe, it helped that we had VIP access. After going through immigrations and security, we finally arrived at the Lufthansa lounged were we killed a few more hours before our flight to Switzerland.
Overall, the Thai First Class Experience definitely lived up to it’s hype. From the lounge and spa in Bangkok, to the A380 cabin & service, everything was top notch. Both the VIP transfers in Bangkok Frankfurt are also services that are really appreciated. Everything about the experience was first class and all the staff went above and beyond to cater to our needs.
Again, we’re really thankful for miles and points for making all this possible. Not even in our wildest dreams would be able to afford flying first class on these routes.
The next two flights are with Swiss Airlines. Frankfurt to Zurich then finally to Venice. Stay tuned!
