Thai Airways upgrades London flights to Boeing 747, new first class

September 19, 2014

Thai Airways passengers travelling to London Heathrow will soon enjoy an upgraded first class service at the pointy end with the airline switching the route to its newer Boeing 747-400 aircraft.


A spokesperson for the airline confirmed  that from October 26, passengers in ‘Royal First’ can unwind in Thai’s newer private suites between Bangkok and London.

That’s a considerable improvement over the lie-flat first class seats on the A340-600 aircraft that the Boeing 747 replaces, and gives premium travellers much more consistency on the flagship route.

The airline flies from its Bangkok hub to London Heathrow twice-daily, with both flights on the receiving end of the jumbo upgrade.

That includes TG910: wheels-up at 12:15am and reaching the U.K. capital at 6:20am later that day, and TG916: leaving Thailand at 1:20pm for a 7:35pm arrival in London that evening.

On the return, TG911 takes to London’s skies at 11:50am daily and touches down in Bangkok at 6:10am the next morning, while TG917 has an evening departure at 9:35pm: parking at the gate at 3:55pm the following afternoon.
