Just flew TG
last month on the A340-500 from BKK
in Royal Silk and if the plane is an Airbus A340 you can expect the new cocoon business class seats. The business class pricing in TG
is not too bad and the service is Business Class is above US carriers standards, but is still not Singapore Airlines or Asiana. However, it is still a great flight.
One key thing to keep in mind is the complimentary jacuzzi, foot and leg massage or shoulder and head massage in the Royal Silk Lounge at BKK
- but make sure to ask which one as there are so many Royal Silk clubs there it makes your head spin.
The airport at BKK
is like a space port - nicely designed and one of new favorites in Asia.
I am not saying the service is bad, it is not, it is just during sleeping time some of the flight attendants seem to disappear. The AVOD in the business class seats is great, dependable and has a very good selection of movies and other things to keep you occupied during the long haul flight. The blankets and pillows are great and it was nice to see the return of the amenity kit - although the oversized lavatories are very well stocked with perfumes, colognes, toothbrushes, toothpaste, combs and etc....
