Reason for Trip
Another business trip for me, but not really complaining for this one. I will be heading from Jakarta all the way to the Canary Island off Spain for a product launch. The only pity is that I will only be there for less than 48hrs! As usual, I won’t elaborate on the CGK-KUL-BKK sectors.

Usually I do not take pics on the KUL-BKK legs, but I will do so here as many people have yet to see the new 2nd generation lie flats on TG’s B772ER and new batch of A333






Since I was already taking pics of the seat and cabin, why not the menu and meals too

Preflight
This time I decided to go down to the city to have a quick meeting, before coming back to the airport. Main purpose was to try out TG Royal First ground service from the curbside. Usually they are flawless everytime I was in transit. But I must say that their service from car drop off was excellent all the way.
Waiting for my boarding pass at the private and deserted 1st class check in area

Behind the wall was the check in counters for 1st class

Let's just say, besides having my personal porter, I also hardly had to do any walking at all.
After I was dropped off at the lounge, I just had one quick smoke at the 1st class smoking room before proceeding to have my complimentary body massage at the Royal Thai Spa

After a nice and relaxing massage, it was time to have something to eat at the lounge

Pretty full up on this flight with 9 out of 10 seats in F taken up.
On board TG’s Royal First Cabin


Amenity Kits

Menu’s were distributed before take off



Service was great as usual, sadly nothing really caught my eye on the avod.

Just watched Eagle Eye and then slept after the meal which was really disappointing though.





The good news is at least I got a real good rest, slept for around 7 hrs straight. But I did wake up in between my sleep as hit really bad turbulence when we neared Russian airspace.

Seat : 25F (Economy Class)
Flight Time: 3hr 35min
Preflight
Due to the real early arrival at FRA we had so much time to kill. We were practically bored to death. Just sat at Starbucks and then on to McDonalds at Terminal 2.
Our group, having dedicated counters for our private charter with Air Berlin


Landside T2

As this was a charter flight, boarding was called early and no rush whatsoever onto the aircraft. After looking at the tail of this baby, I realised that this is one of Air Berlin's new A321.

Inflight
A real great crew welcomed us onboard and I immedietly smelt that new aircraft smell! Very nice and intoxicating indeed.

The flight itself passed really slow. By this time I was really tired from flying.
When you are bored, what do you do? Take pictures of course









Of course all means and drinks aboard were already catered for.

Start of descend


Also found out that this aircraft will also stay on the ground at Lanzarote for the duration of our stay and then take us back again to Frankfurt in 2 days time. The crew were really happy at this arrangement.
Love that factory fresh paint, and true airliner buffs like us, really love using stairs  which means, great pics

Preflight
After our morning meetings it was straight to the airport to board our chartered flight. She was sitting on the tarmac waiting for us the entire time we were in Lanzarote.

Hi Baby!


Inflight
Really couldn't be comfortable the entire flight. The new slimline recaro seats really lack support in the lumbar region. So spent quite some time just walking around and talking to my colleagues. We landed around 10 minutes behind schedule. Inflight catering was also terrible. Sorry I did not take any in cabin pics for this leg as my camera ran out of batteries. But don’t worry, will charge it at the lounge in FRA before the next leg to BKK.

Seat : 3K (Royal First Class)
Flight Time: 10hr 20min
Pre Flight
After arrivals, it was a quick connection with the sky train to T1 where all the colleagues split up to various flights back to our own countries, of course most of us from Asia were either flying TG or SQ. After checking in, we decided to head to the Senator lounge which was packed to the max, very degrading and bad for a 1st lounge. I seriously think they need to improve this aspect and maybe make a proper Star Alliance 1st Lounge in FRA T1. I decided to have a meal at McDonald’s before taking a long walk to the gate as this time my TG flight was parked at a different satellite. Had to clear security twice from B to C. And the C gates were terrible and no place to sit or do. I just stood at the boarding doors.

Nothing beats being back in the serene environment of TG 1st, really going to miss the B747 when the A380 starts coming online for TG.



Meals for this leg to BKK

Time to turn on the AVOD

Really love caviar, although too much of this stuff can be really overwhelming and fishy too!

Appetizers and great split pea soup


Main Course was pretty good too

This entire flight was really full, FRA is definitely a money earner for TG. After the meals, I just slept all the way till I was woken up for breakfast. But as I was not too hungry, I just decided to have cereal.

Cabin basking in the morning sun

Another terrific flight with TG and can’t wait when I fly them next in July to FRA and MXP.
By the way, back to the flight itself, we were late in pushing back which ultimately caused delay out of FRA and subsequently also 50mins late in our arrival to BKK. I watched a movie on the AVOD during the meal, afterwards I just slept all the way back to BKK. What can I say, TG still is one of the best for First Class service.

Bangkok (BKK) – Kuala Lumpur (KUL)

Preflight
After arriving I immedietly transfered to Terminal 1 where I checked in. For some reason, this TG flight is not departing from the usual B gates but C. I decided to go to the Senator Lounge in B but it was really full so I had dinner at McDonalds and then chatted with my colleagues whom were taking the later SQ flight. Had to clear security twice from B to C. And the C gates were terrible and no place to sit or do. I just stood at the boarding doors.

Great pics! Thai F class looks wonderful and I agree with you about that "new plane smell". love it too...

The A321 of Air Berlin looked very sleek, but I was surprised that it waited 2 days with you at your destination and then brought you back. Isn't that an extraordinarily inefficient use of an airplane?

Hi Boss!

Great to read your globe trotting experience as usual, and what an exotic destination it was - Lanzarote.

I find it amusing that you seemed to prefer McDonalds more than the First Class Lounges on several occasions in this trip.

None of them flying MH from FRA? Reality hurts!

I am still saving for my first FCL flight.  Smile

That would depend on if the aircraft was needed elsewhere. If not, and they weren't able to sell the time in between, the costs would be (comparatively) small.

Great report. Thai F looks very nice indeed.

Hey, ThaiA345,

you know, I´am waiting for this one.

A real nice and enjoyable read.
Flying to ACE from CGK for two days only, well not the usual routine trip,
but exactly my style!.

Good pix as well. It seems TG needs a check from myself also.

Greetings,

Quoting AT (Reply 1):

Actually when I spoke to the crew, they were also surprised that they had a long layover in ACE, and they were really happy about the break they get. Really never seen a much happier crew than on that AB flight. I guess AB had access capacity plus it was still the winter season, so not really a peak period for air travel, so I guess its cheaper for AB to leave the aircraft on the ground in ACE, airport parking charges are definitely cheaper than fuel for the aircraft to fly back to Germany and then back to ACE to pick us up.

The A321 was actually stationed in Dusseldorf, it only flew over to FRA to pick us up.

Hi Herbert.

First class check in BKK is truly amazing. Porter came up to the hotel limo with a normal baggage cart, but when he saw as was traveling First he changed it for the more appropriate golden one  Wink

Quoting ThaiA345 (Thread starter):
Senator lounge which was packed to the max, very degrading and bad for a 1st lounge. I seriously think they need to improve this aspect and maybe make a proper Star Alliance 1st Lounge in FRA T1

Totally agree! Star seriously need a FCL at FRA, the Senator lounge is a hellhole. I actually preferred the business class lounge at B pier instead. Bigger and much closer to the normal TG gate's.

Nice report again, and after a quick check I see that the menu from BKK-FRA is almost the same as when I traveled in October. How often does TG change their menu?

Cheers
Stein

New Lufthansa Tower Lounge with panoramic view
Lufthansa guests enjoy unique vista at Frankfurt Airport


Lufthansa First and Business-Class passengers as well as customers with Hon Circle, Senator or frequent traveller status will enjoy a unique perspective at the end of March at Frankfurt airport: It comes on stream with the opening of the new Tower Lounge in Departures area A above gate 65.

...In a large comfort area, deep leather armchairs invite lounge visitors to sit back and relax with a view of apron traffic through the huge glass façade....

The new Lufthansa Tower Lounge replaces the existing Lufthansa Senator and Business Lounges at gate A51.

That is great news Big grin

Last time was in October 2008 and the Senator lounge was of course packed to max. With TG leaving from B45 the business lounge was perfect. The Senator lounge was/is good, compared to other *G lounges, but it does not come close to TG's own First class lounges.

Very nice report of an unsual buisness trip routing.I bet you must have felt tired on those last four hours to ACE.I was right on the next island (Fuerteventura) during your visit taking a 2 week vacation.
By the way-did you meet a pretty blonde girl called Eve at the driving event?

Hi Boss!!! Well, unlike lounges in Asia, the FCL lounges in Europe really suck in terms of food!
The reason why even the Malaysian colleagues fly with SQ and TG to FRA is beacuse of the frequency of flights. SQ and TG both have 2 daily rotations while MH only has 1 rotation and on 5 days a week. As FRA is a business destination, the airlines with the most frequency usually wins.

By the way, even my German colleagues who are based in Singapore also fly SQ and not LH, their company policy requires them to only fly LH, but the top up with their own $$ to fly SQ eheheh

I just got back from PVG. Used CX in J. On the way up was lucky to be seated in the F cabin of a 3 class (sold as 2 class) A333 and on the way back got the brand new A333 with new J seats in herringbone layout. Will post that soon!!

very interesting report - definitely an unusal routing for a business trip. How did you like Lanzarote? Did you get to see anything?

Since I was already taking pics of the seat and cabin, why not the menu and meals too

The first course looks excellent - but the main course could have been an Economy Class meal, too.

Menu’s were distributed before take off

"Schweinswurstel sausage" - funny to read that in a TG First Class menu card!

TG F looks good, not the best, but not a bad way to spend a long flight.

Nice to get an almost new plane as you private charter though shame it was the sam eplane on the return flight.

I thought TG sold the seats as J on the Scandinavian routes?

They do. Old First seats are sold as business class on ARN and CPH flights so there will be no one in First, but full (or close to that, only 14 seats) in business class  Smile
