part of our australia 2015 first class trip was booked with thai airways first on the new airbus a380, from cdg-bkk.
the first cabin is configured as 12seats, all mini suites. There are 2 private bathroom (one huge bathroom located in the nose of the airplane, the front left. There is a private lounge at front right side)
we managed to be the only ones on this flight in first class. So we had the WHOLE a380 first to play and sleep with. Taking off on one seat, eat at another one, sleep at another seat with the bed premade… We had Private bathroom, private lounges, and the best thai crew ever, with what seems like 5 (!!) FA serving us.
it feels a lot more spacious and luxurious as we felt as if we were on our private airplane with all that space. It felt as it is better than the new “residence suite first class” of etihad
thai first class food and pre order LOBSTER thermidor:
you can pre order food from thai website for special orders like lobsters, thai set menu etc..:
When you are flying first with thai from CDG paris, we also had access to the whole first class lounge at the star alliance first lounge at terminal 1. There were nobody in that first class lounge. The lounge is basic, with basic food and drinks.
For showers, we had to go downstairs and use the showers in the business lounges at terminal1. The showers were decent, clean, and is bigger than swiss first class showers lounges at zurich. The water Pressure was good, but the room was HOT as the infrared lamp was on permanently.
At arrival in BKK airport, as with all first class passengers, we had a ground crew waiting with our names. We boarded a private golf cart and they escorted us to the thai first lounge.
as usual, what is special about thai tg first services compared to other first class airlines is their excellent ground services and lounges: you get access to their award winning first lounge even if transiting in first class to business class, and you have access to the free one hour massage ! ( as long as your next flights in business class is also with thai tg airways)
