    I didn’t realize you were allowed to take self-photos in the lav unless you’re wearing first class pajamas

    Seth. I flew the TG A380 in Y on the upperdeck twice in the last month and while you are right that the ride is very quiet, the ride is also very uncomfortable. Seats are rock hard, and pitch is not sufficient. I personally would fly SQ over TG if given the choice as I find their seats more comfortable and IFE much better. I wouldn’t go out of my way to avoid the A380, but I certainly have no interest in repeating the Y experience on TG’s A380 unless the flight timing behooved me to chose it.

    Flew TG 600 BKK to HKG Sunday in First and really had an identical experience. We flew to BKK on Cathay Pacific and there was much more privacy – in fact, too much! I much prefer sitting next to my wife in the middle but I suppose those who travel alone might really like it. So that said, I found the TG seat to be great and I would compare it to the Swiss and BA First seats we’ve experienced. I had trouble getting the FA to get me the right meal and, in fact, they totally messed up. I was having problems explaining the issue so just said screw it and nibbled at what I was served.

    It was 60,000 United points for the two of us, rather than the CX Business which was only 35,000 but I figured the way things are going, this might be my last chance to experience First in an A380 so what the hell!

    Thai is allowing us to fly first class with miles on A-380 with Dom Perignon Lobster and Caviar. Don’t compare to Emirates and Singapore because if crew is jet lagged or had bad day you might feel it. Be happy with what you get for free because like green stamps one day will dissapear. If you look for short comings you show post on trip advisor.

    Happy travels.
