Reason for Trip

This time I am heading to ice cold Rovaniemi in Finland for a winter driving program with some friends. After which we will spend a few days in Copenhagen and London. Most of the trip is with TG in F, with all internal Europe flights in a privately chartered Legacy 600.

A wet and rainy day in Jakarta, got to the airport with about 1hr to spare before ETD. After a quick check in, we just spent some time in the GA lounge before boarding was called. I wont talk to much for my short haul sectors as the main event are the long haul and private flights. But as you can see, GA is now a force to reckon with in the region, really lifting up their game in recent years. Once I didn’t even want to fly them, and now I can say they are one of my preferred airline.

Preflight
After arrival from KUL its off to the Royal First Lounge where we had our showers and then its time for a quick bite and smoke and before long we were called and escorted to our waiting bird.

Full flight in all classes today, but once I stepped on board, it became the usual place of tranquility for me up front in the nose of the queen of the skies.

A very cheerful and personal crew tonight. Slightly longer flight time of 11hrs and 15mins due to strong head winds. After take off supper was served.

I managed to enjoy a movie on my iPad along with my meal. Managed to get about 7hours of sleep and soon enough it was time for breakfast and final descend began. Another fantastic flight with TG.

As my next 3 legs are on the very same aircraft and crew, I will just let the pictures do the talking. Basically being a private charter, everything was excellent, from the aircrew to the catering provided. I must say that me and my friends are very fortunate to be able to experience this and definitely something that we will not take for granted. The locations that we flew into also helped the great photos that I took.

After 4 days in RVN, now its time to go to CPH, got to wait awhile for deicing truck, but not a problem for me as it gave me an opportunity to walk around the Legacy and take some nice pics

And more cabin views

1st Flight: 1979 (a very old bird indeed)

As there were only 4 of us on the last leg from CPH to London, we decided to charter a Bravo, however, it was replaced at the last minute by a really old Citation II, built in 1979 as the Bravo had to undergo unscheduled maintenance. Although I was not too happy with last minute change of equipment, I was also a little excited to fly a bird that’s only 1 year younger than me !

Preflight
The evening before was terrible in London with strong snow fall which wrecked havoc around the greater London area. I checked early in the morning and found out my flight was operating as normal. Gave myself plenty of time and got to the airport with 2.5hrs to spare.
T3 @ Heathrow


After completing all formalities including my tax refund it was off to the Lounge which was really crowded. I must say the star lounge in CDG is much better.


Nice snowy day and heavies getting ready to depart on their loung haulers

HS-TNC waiting for me


Inflight
Realised that the A346 is now used to LHR is due to some carbon index tax that airlines have to pay, so the older the aircraft like the B744, the more you have to pay. Even 1 rotation on the FRA route uses the B773ER now. Anyways, its nice to be back onboard my inner sanctum of TG F.
Crew were great and immediately recognized me when I came onboard.


More heavies

T5 @ Heathrow

Bye Bye LHR

Sorry I didn’t take many shots after this as I was really tired after the flight back from LHR. I hope you guys enjoyed my TR and will post my next TR soon which I just got back from.

Thanks for posting. I just booked with TG KTM-BKK in C and BKK-FRA in F so this was good timing to have a look at the products. Would you be able to enlarge the photos of the menu as it's a bit small to see? How much time do you need to make the most of the F lounge in BKK? IS it easy to get an appointment for the massage? Also, do you ever pre-order from the online menu flying in F? I've booked the Chinese Roast Duck - have you tried it?

Thanks!

I didn't know Airbus was making a -600 version of the A350, nor did I know it had entered service already  .

Hi Gabriel, glad to know that you decided to fly TG. PM me your email and i shall send you a bigger file size of the menu. When are you actually flying your TG flights? TG will start flying the A380 to FRA in the 3rd quarter of 2012, so good if you can be on that flight. To make good use of the F lounge in BKK, give yourself a good 3 hours (thats including getting the full massage). I know the appointments are pretty hard to get by between 9.30pm till 11pm, so good if you can be there earlier. I always pre-order from TG's online site. And yes, the duck is fantastic! My wife had the porridge pre-ordered too and she said it was great too

Hi Alberto! Thanks for reading my TR.

Regarding TG between both HKG and SIN, here are very notorious for last minute exchanges of aircraft equipment, so although it might say A346, last minute it can be changes to anything from a B772,B773 or even the A333. So you really have to cross your fingers that your equipment dont get changed. Once even on a regular A33 flight from BKK to CGK, aircraft was changed to a B744 !

Good Luck !

Hello !

Brilliant TR, what a fantastic trip... something I'll want to do one day is charter an aircraft and go around the Arctic... but that is something that'll need proper saving from my side.

You do not need to answer this, but how much did the charters cost? Would I be right in pricing it between 25,000-30,000 Euros? Just curious, I am familiar with prices in the US and here in Bahrain but not those of Europe.

The TG F product looks like a very solid product, what an F class should be- a true experience of luxury, something it would seem most airlines have forgotten.

Again, wonderful TR, a glimpse into a world many of us would love to be apart off. Something great, a pinnacle of commercial aviation of sorts.

Congratulations on a fabulous trip, and a great trip report.

Wish you clear skies and happy flying,


Mohammed

I paid around Euro 45,000 I think. Routing is FRA-HEL (1 night layover), HEL-RVN (3 night layover), HEL-CPH. The aircraft stayed the entire time with me, and the crew too.

Gotta love your usual THAI Royal First class ride.
I'm confident that Platinum status will be granted to you soon.

The private plane runs over the Scandinavia and Baltic are just one-of-kind trip report!
Super neat and way more exclusive beyond any trip reports.

Thank you for sharing your experience. Always amazing!!

Hi Mr. H, fantastic report!

Once again your standard TG F trips, very nice to see you flying the A346 for a change. The plane looks quite a lot brighter and cleaner than the B744. Private jet was an interesting read as always, was quite amazed to see the catering. Looked quite spectacular, not something one would expect on a short flight. But then again it's a private jet 

Do you have any plans to start flying private all the way from Indonesia to Europe? Perhaps something for later during the career

Hello

Love the trip report as usual, in particular the detail of pj flghts! Tg first class is not something that i am looking forward though   due to a change to be TGed ha ha, but the food looks great. Love GA biz class cabin and it's onboard service but sometime i feel it's the cabin felt too red for my eyes....i wish they would change the colour of the blanket, pilow, and head cover to a softer colour so it will not be too tiring in my eyes especially for medium to long flight. The colour of the seat it self is very nice.

Looking forward for other great TRs.

Cheers

Hi Net, I have actually been awarded Platinum status since the first time TG announced Platinum status (the card arrived 1 week after TG had the formal launch in BKK)

Hi Jonas.....that is still a dream, as you know the furthest I have been on a private jet is the distance of Jakarta to HongKong/Macau. Got another on towards end of the year from the East coast of the US to the West Coast

Hi Mr H

Just to share, i did jkt-kl-jkt sector last week and yesterday, 3 flights with Garuda and 1 flight with Mas ( kl-jkt as i could not get seat on Garuda). I wish i had taken same photos to share the experience in economy class with Garuda and Mas. My conclusion is Garuda product is now really superior compared to Mas ( i flied Mas new 787-800NG) Garuda's cabin crew, seat comfort, cabin ambiance are all really excellent, the thing that Mas is significantly better is their avod with more quality programs compared to Garudas'. The thing that i didn't like with Mas is their economy class seat, realy uncomforatble, feel like flying lcc but with avod and meals . Next week i will do jkt-ams-jkt with Garuda, i will try to post my trip report if ihave some free time  

Cheers
