First Class is on the upper deck of the A380 - so there is lots of room in front of the cabin (left and right from the stairs) to use for the restrooms or other things.
On the left side of the stairs there is a really spacious restroom.
When opening the door you first find this small seating area.
and when turning right (towards the bow) the toilette.
and of course a sink
Thai didn`t place a second restroom on the other side of the stairs (there is of course another restroom behind the first class cabin - but thats smaller then the forward one) Instead they installed a little lounge there.
Here the view forward when standing in front of the stairs.
One question: is there room to store a 22" rollaboard or is that something one would have to check?
The overhead bins bins above The Center seats are quite big - so if your rollaboard fits into The usual bins you will have no Problem storing it there. In fact my 55cm Trolley was no problem to store in there.

I asked one of the FAs about this, and she said that it meant to be an electronic seat control, but Thai has not finished installing the software yet. Therefore, for now, its just a screen that lights up and does absolutely nothing.
I generally liked the layout, but thought that the sliding table thing was a little annoying if you wanted to just lounge and put your feet on the ottoman. On the plus side, I've never seen so many different storage compartments before. I wish Thai had gone without the overhead bins on this aircraft; it would really open up the cabin and give it an airy feel, similar to Lufthansa's F cabin.
The BKK-HKG service is a nice opportunity to try it out though, and despite the 8 AM departure, the Dom flows, on request.
