Thai Airways adds A380 to Heathrow route

3 Jun 2013 by GrahamSmith

Thai Airways will add an A380 to its daily service between Bangkok and London Heathrow later this year.

From December 1, the superjumbo will operate under flight code TG911 when it leaves London each day at 1150 and arrives in Bangkok at 0610 the next morning.

The return flight, TG910, leaves Bangkok at 0110 and arrives at LHR at 0715.

An A346 will operate on Thai Airways' second daily flight - the TG917 departing London at 2135 and the TG 916 departing Bangkok at 1250.

The standard cabin layout offered by the Airbus A380 allows between 525 and 853 passengers - Thai has deliberately kept the number of seats to 507 passengers to maximise space and comfort.

The seats are arranged in three classes - 12 in Royal first class, 60 in Royal Silk business class, and 435 in economy.
