10 November 2008
Flight TG415 BKK-KUL
Airbus A330 Reg. HS-TEG
STD 0900
STA 1215

A quick walk over from the Novotel Hotel into the terminal and all the way to the far end of the terminal to the Business Class check-in. An agent was at the front of the concourse to make sure that I was checking-in at the right place and I was directed to an empty desk. There are little seats in front of the desk so you don't have to wear yourself out by standing! The procedure was quick and easy and the agent gave me an invitation to the lounge. A dedicated immigration desk at the end of the check-in desk saw me soon through to the enormous departure lounge. My flight was to depart from Gate F1A at the other end of the terminal so a walk down towards the gate to one of the Royal Orchid Lounge. The lounge was very busy full of suits going off on business. Not surprising really as it was around 8 am on a Monday morning. There was the usual selection of pastries, fruit and a small selection of hot food. There was a good selection of drinks available including a full bar, much more than in the Lufthansa lounge at LHR and FRA the previous night.
I decided to go to the gate to find it was to be a bus to the aircraft. Boarding started at 0815 with an announcement for Business Class and Star Alliance Gold pax to board. A quick drive across the airfield to our waiting A330.


The friendly Thai crew directed me to my seat 12A and I made myself comfy.
My seat.

The cabin was arranged in a 2-2-2 config with 5 rows. the seats were te regional business class seats, cradle type and comfortable especially for such a short flight.
Big version: Width: 640 Height: 426 File size: 56kb
Big version: Width: 640 Height: 426 File size: 47kb

During boarding the friendly crew offered papers, hot towels, drinks, headsets and the menu and then came around to take the breakfast order.
On the menu today Fruit Juice, Fresh Fruits and Yoghurt. Main Course Stir-fried Soba with Vegetables Prawn Siew-mai, Steamed Taro Cake or Tomato and Onion Frittata, Chicken Sausage, Mushroom, Baked Tomato with Olive Oil and Oregano or Steamed Marinated Chicken Thigh with Garlic and Ginger, Chicken Flavoured Rice and Sauteed Veg and Breads, Croissants, Muffins etc.

Boarding completed and the cabin had 30 pax out of a possible 42. We pushed back at 0900 and take off by 0910. The flight time was 1hour 45mins so the crew didn't waste any time in starting the service. a drinks trolley came past with a choice of apple, orange, water and tomato juice followed by the breakfast trolley.

The fruit plate was cleared away and another trolley come by with the selection of hot meals on then. I had ordered the Chicken and it was pretty tasty

More tea or coffee was offered and then the tray was cleared away and hot towels given.

The seat had an individual ife screen which was pulled out from the armrest but with such a short flight I was happy enough to enjoy my food and the view. All too soon we started our descent into Kuala Lumpur and landed on time. I said farewell to the crew and into the terminal to immigration and a wait of about 20 minutes for my suitcase.

In summary a great flight with an elegant, relaxed service by a crew who looked fantastic and smart in their wonderful uniforms. Smooth as silk!

I liked your cabin and food pics.

I don't know about you, but I have always found the cloth seats such as these to be so much more inviting than those plastic pods that are all the rage these days. Thai isn't afraid to use color, which is a nice change from all the blue and grey (one seat cover) in US carriers.

Quoting Ajs123uk (Thread starter):
A quick walk over from the Novotel Hotel into the terminal

Thanks for your report Ajs123uk. How was the Novotel? We will be overnighting at BKK next year after flying in from HKG on a TG A330 in J so your report was of interest to us....looks not a bad product.

Thanks for the report and pictures.

I've flown TG before which I enjoyed, so always good to see more TG TR's.

Thanks for the comments folks.
Yes I agree the cabin environment was very warm and welcoming with those colours and fabric.

The Novotel is a lovely hotel, the room I had was very comfy and spacious, great sized bathroom, very relaxing pool area to get over the long flight from Europe (or even a shorter hop from Hong Kong comeflywithme) and as usual gracious Thai service.

Just hope the situation there at the moment sorts itself out soon.
