Introduction

January 25, 2014 This is my fifth time flying in business class on Thai Airways Airbus 380 so I would just be concentrating on the meals served on this flight to Frankfurt. Previous trip reports can be found here and here.

Boarding Pass

I got this boarding pass when I checked in at the Yangon International Airport check in desk where my inbound trip begun.

Lounge

Luckily, I have Star Alliance Gold status so I could visit the Eva Air Lounge even for just a few minutes. You can find more pictures here.

Otherwise, you only have access to the Royal Silk Lounge of Thai Airways. Review of this lounge can be found here.

Again, if you have Star Alliance Gold status and still have time to do lounge hopping, there is the Silver Kris Lounge. You can find more pictures here.

 

After checking a few emails and having a light meal, I learned that the flight would be 30 minutes delayed due to late arrival of the aircraft. I remember having the same scenario a few months ago during our flight from Frankfurt to Bangkok with the same aircraft so I guess this is becoming more of a routine. Well, I hope not. About 10 minutes before boarding, I decided to head to the gate.

Seat

My lovely seat 16D, which turns into a fully flat bed.

The business class amenity kit I got was something new, or at least new for my collection. The Porsche design pouch bag included brush and comb, slumber shade, earplugs, toothbrush, toothpaste, mouthwash, Bogner lip balm and body lotion, and comfort socks.

I had just eaten a light meal in the lounge about 30 minutes prior to boarding so I settled for a a glass of water for my predeparture drink.

Entertainment

From their new releases, I watched "Elysium" and "Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs" which were actually pretty good.

Transit at Frankfurt International Airport

After landing at Frankfurt International Airport, I headed to the Lufthansa Senator Lounge, again thanks to my Star Alliance Gold Status.

 

Conclusion

 

Again, another great flight with Thai Airways from Bangkok to Frankfurt. I just love their superjumbo with their business class seats that turn into a fully flat bed. Apart from being delayed, the service was once again exceptional. The food was very good although I remember that the bread were a bit hard probably due to the fact that we were about an hour delayed and that it was prepared quite early. The Bulgari perfumes inside the lavatory were much better than the old Aigner products they had on my last flight. Overall, a very enjoyable flight back to Europe.
