Lounge

We used to Thai Airways Royal Orchid Lounge nearest to Gate E8. As usual, the food in the lounge was superb.

Aircraft

It was a back-to-back with the Airbus A380-800, as it was the same aircraft we took from Frankfurt. For this reason, I will be skipping the pictures of the cabin, seat and entertainment and just concentrate on the meal service on board.

 

Transit

Our flight from Frankfurt was two hours delayed and as a special gesture, we were met by a very friendly staff who escorted us to our ride, a golfcar!

Arrival in Hongkong

Upon arrival at Hongkong International Airport, we had a glimpse of Malaysia Airlines Airbus A380-800. Sighting a Superjumbo in this airport is not that difficult since it actually sees the most number of this aircraft than any other airport in the world.

After ariving in the hotel, we just left our luggages and immediately took the metro to downtown. And the weather was just perfect in exploring the city!

Conclusion

 

I was still overwelmed by the great experience I had flying from Frankfurt to Bangkok and this is just as wonderful as that. The food was excellent and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The flight's delay was not so good and I hope that Thai Airways will be able to perform better next time. Overall, I really had a good time flying with Thai Airways, specially on the Superjumbo.
