Thai Airways will be the next carrier to take delivery of the Airbus 380, and it looks like their second longhaul route featuring Airbus 380 service has finally been loaded into the system.
As of February 16, Thai Airways will have daily Airbus 380 service between Bangkok and Paris. Previously this route had twice daily service (some days of the week) with 777-300ER aircraft, though the route is now once daily on the Airbus 380.
The reason I mention this is because they have excellent first class award availability, so I know it’ll interest a lot of you for the novelty factor of flying the Airbus 380 (though it goes beyond that, since the A380 really is a superior flying experience in my opinion). Furthermore, Thai has one of the best first class ground experiences in Bangkok, so this will be making an already amazing first class product even better. Thai is one of the most generous airlines when it comes to releasing award space, and from the looks of it I don’t think that will change with the Airbus 380.
Thai’s first longhaul route featuring the Airbus 380 will be Bangkok to Frankfurt, which begins on December 15.
Can’t wait to finally fly one of these planes in Thai’s livery!
