There some carriers where perfection and commitment for the pax reach the top and even above....

The J&F passengers are the targets for those. However, It's harder nowadays to fulfil the desire, match the customers needs. The outcome is clear, you can't lie any longer, the CDG-BKK was 7/8, and then headed to HKG, the national carrier AF left to HKG with no pax in F....
Fare does not really matter for some ( It matters to me !!!! ), they want the service to be 5*, the catering on par with some restaurants ranked by Guide Michelin with 1, 2, 3 stars. The crew have to be trained to cope with luxury pax.


TG is so well presented here thanks to our famous Thaia345. Whenever I see his nickname I know to matter the airlines I will enjoy.

By lack of time I have not yet published my TG flight to BKK last April from CDG with the 747 regional !!!!

Reason for flying : Taking my wife for a 3 days off. Don't be upset I've taken countless pics with her. Hence this report will feature me, her, and my beloved GF (the plane, the First Class)...

Check in : Fast, Already taken the seats when I made the booking.

Load : 7/8 in F.... and full in J/Y....

Lounge : I knew this lounge, but how they dare to build up this lounge ! No even close to J standard. It's a shame. Same for the LAX lounge in F.

Boarding : No one in front of us, greetings when we arrived, they lift us to our seats.

Crew : I don't know where to begin, among the best in the sky it's a start... They made everything to achieve our requests. Glass always topped up and so on, and the end of the flight I gave them a letter to congrat them. Impressed ! Some carriers should send they crew to TG training session !!!

Seat : One of the best out there, some love it, some hate it, I do love this seat, very comfy, slept 6 hours.

Yes guys, I know what you are thinking about, I didn't make love !! Only slept !!

Catering: Outstanding, no words are strong enough to describe the taste.. Perfect from A to Z.

Things to improve : The lounge in CDG, but it’s not TG’s fault. Can’t wait to try them on the 380 !!!

Verdict : My wife told me, honey, we have to plan our next trip with them ASAP !!!! You can ask for more when the top is at your feet…

Thanks for reading !

Thomas and Lydia

It is good to see that you provide positive feedback. Many people are quick to complain but not as many give praise where it is due. Well done to the crew for meeting and surpassing your expectations.

Your photos are astounding. The presentation of the food make it appear to be works of art rather than just catering. There are several airlines that could learn from this!

The suite looks roomy and comfortable, although it is showing some signs of wear.

I am glad that you enjoyed your flight and thank you for sharing,

Roy.

Thanks for a great report Thomas and Lydia  

How bad is the lounge in CDG actually??

I´ll do the same flight with my GF in January as a part of a trip to SYD and now I really can't wait 

Also thanks for the pics of you guys dining together, as I was wondering if the 777 suite facilitated for that.

Cheers
Stein

Lovely report, thanks. I flew BKK-CDG in F a couple weeks ago, and the PJs were baby blue like your wife had on. How did you like the purple ones?

Oh boy, a great way to fly with your wife! Really  

Food was just too much to eat. Absolutely adore the carved fruit decorations (edible).
That's something authentic THAI, no copycat from anyone and vice versa!

You seem to fit in the purple PJ very well! The size is just perfect!! lol
What color of your RIMOWA F amenity kit? I really like them! The mini-Rimowa  

I hope you had great time in Thailand!
Don't forget the make a trip report from your THAI F class on A380   Can't wait!!

Thanks for sharing!!

Let's just blame it on yields.

This is the Thai 777-300ER and it is nice. Thai does use it between BKK and CDG. It is a really nice airplane, good for those long routes. I recently made a trip BKK-NRT-BKK on it. I got to walk through the first class section on the way to my seat in economy class, and it looked nice. So did business class.
I really cannot complain about economy class. I usually fly Japan Airlines between BKK and NRT, but I'm going to start flying Thai Airways instead. The seating is much roomier, even in economy class.
And the Thai service is great, I can only imagine how good you had it in first class.



Have you kissed a 777 today?

You are right, they were very happy about my letter, it helps them I guess.

Dreadful ! I don't get *A, how come they have set up such a miserable lounge ?

Very nice indeed, last April I gathered the blue one, both are nice to me.

Tks !!! I'm a bit shy, no joking I'm not !! We both had the grey.

We were on the way to HKG after this flight, no time yet to explore this fantastic country, a matter of time don't worry.

It's beyond your dreams, trust me !!!


Thanks to all of you for your positives feedbacks.
