I appears they have announced that Frankfurt and Hong Kong are going to be the first 2 cities to be serviced by Thai Air's new A380s.

 

Here's a video presentation re the prospective lay-out of the planes:

 

 

My apologies if this has already been posted!

They are good but have to confess preferred the seats in the Boeing 777 to the A380, just a bit better for my back

The first A380 with Thai Airways will be used in Asain sectors to train staff & get used to the drill etc.

 

Then the first two places they will serve long distance will be London & Frankfurt.

 

I bet the Business seats on the A380 will be lots more expensive than they are now from London to Bangkok return.

 

Thanks to the OP.

Flew Biz the other Year on this plane and whilst still new not much difference.

 

Before climbing the stairs looked into Cattle and seemed quite light and airy walking about later i saw they had mood lighting downstairs with stars in ceiling.

 

They will not allow you a look upstairs as i had to reshow my stub and some idiots was moaning he just wanted a look upstairs and photos as i passed him 5555

 

And as has been said bet the price will go up and days out of London reduce as they pack them in rather than half empty planes the last year daily ( until recent )

Just booked myself on a flight on the Thai A380. Can't wait. I've flown on Emirates and Singapore airlines A380's previously so interested to see how the Thai version compares. And I'll be upstairs as well and the proposed configuration looks pretty sweet.

Thai Airways have no plans to use the A380 on the LHR-BKK route.

I like the idea of flying the 380 but on the other hand looking around at 400 people heading for immigration at the same time as me worries me a little

Good that they've got proper 180deg flatbeds in Biz class now unlike on all their other planes.

 

But 32" pitch in Econ is 2" less than most of their other big planes so the majority of passengers will have less room. Oh well, pile 'em high, sell 'em cheap eh!

I'm super excited for this plane! I fly out cattle but am flying BKK to NRT on the A380 FIRST, and then flying UA from NRT to LAX on the 787 Dreamliner in business!

I'm pretty sure Paris and Frankfurt are to be the European destinations Thai will use their A380s on, unless they have changed their plans.

I bet the price is going to be high at first. Emirates were like that when they first introduced their plane.

I might try to do the Bangkok to Hong Kong flight in December just to see how it is. Partying in Hong Kong for a few days will not be that bad....nice thread!
