May I ask which of their competitors ytou have flown?

General Opinion here is that CX, SQ & NH's products are in every respect superior to TGs.

I am also of the opinion that BA, QF, MH, LX & LH beat them quite comfortably.

As I personaly see it; TG offer one of the worst First Class products amongst most modern airlines (on a par with AF, IB, AA & UA).

Regards,
Alex

Please do not say that TG F is the same as UA and AA. TG is far worse.

What is the point of this thread and the other one about having the best business class. Do you work for TG?

It seems that not only does Thai have the best First Class service, it also has the Best Business Class in the World, the Best Economy Class in the World, and is The Best overall.

Hmmmmmm .

Why fly BA/QF/SQ/CX/SA/LX/AA/UA/LH/CI/EK/&lt;insert any airline you want&gt; First Class when you can ride plush velvet without those bothersome PTV's with AVOD? I mean, who needs 80+ inch pitch flat beds anyway?

Flying-Jet, Are you a Thai employee or shareholder? YOu have posted these multiple threads praising their Y/J/F services and have such little history in this community, I wonder.

If I were an employee or a share holder of Thai, I wouldn't post such things. Everybody knows that it's impossible and I can hardly believe that there's a person who is so foolish to do this in order to improve Thai image.

I don't think he has a good intention for the airlines.

Maybe this is an innovative way of Thai bashing!

I recently did the LHR-BKK in FC on TG and had an excellent flight. Food was quite good, service excellent and the seats were comfortable. Yes, I'd rate SQ ahead of TG, but not LH, UA or AA.

I thought about it and I agree. Thai people are more gentle, they even put the blanket on for me. very polite. one thing I wish it could be change is the seat, but the 747 europe routes seat I have no complain. Now I fly to Bangkok for business every month and my company can't afford paying first on other carrier, TG is way cheaper in first-class.

Let sum this topic up
If you don't want to spend alot of money on first-class fare try TG.

Advantage on TG
1.Service
2.Food
3.Great personal attention
4.Amenity gift and sourvenior
5.Fast track, escort by the TG ground staff from the check-in to the lounge,and to the aircraft. escort from the plane on arrival,(fast track line for int'l clearance etc)

disadvantage on TG
1.Lounge, need to up be update.
2.seat, should have a suite like UAL,SQ,BA etc.
3.no PTV on the 744

For the price, yes. But I never going to sit on the business class on TG that's for sure.

LH is miles ahead of TG!

The renovated Royal First class lounge is quite nice. The Royal Executive class lounge is also being renovated and from what I saw a few weeks ago look fabulous.
