· Lufthansa has reintroduced First Class on the Bangkok – Frankfurt route
· The four-class Airbus A380 replaced Boeing 747 – 400 for the winter timetable brings more than 35% increase of capacity

Lufthansa's flagship jumbo Airbus A380 landed for the first time in Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport last week on 29 October. And on 6 November, a gate ceremony was held at the airport to celebrate this milestone with the attendance of H.E. Peter Pruegel, German Ambassador to Thailand.

The Airbus A380 features four travel classes: First, Business, Premium Economy and Economy and the award-winning Lufthansa First Class cabin is definitely a highlight, which is not available across all fleet. Thailand has once again proven to be one of the most important growing markets within the Lufthansa Group network. By replacing the previous Boeing 747 – 400 for the winter timetable, there is an increase of more than 35% capacity from October 2017 to March 2018 between Bangkok and Frankfurt.

"It is a great pleasure for us, as the only European airline, to bring the Airbus A380 to Bangkok due to the seasonal demand we see for this market. This is an ideal aircraft for long-haul flights as it offers comfort, space and quietness," said Mr. Stefan Molnar, General Manager Sales Thailand, Vietnam and the Mekong Region for Lufthansa Group Airlines at an exclusive First Class media event in Bangkok. He continued, "We offer four travel classes on the Airbus A380. And with the reintroduction of Lufthansa First Class, we would like to demonstrate to the Thai market once again the premium services to top customers. For example, our caviar service is served as a separate course on the flight. In addition we offer limousine transfer service from home to airport with BMW Series 7 for our First Class customers who purchase and travel roundtrip ticket from Bangkok."

Lufthansa Airbus A380 carries 509 passengers in total and features First Class (8 seats), Business Class (78 seats), Premium Economy (52 seats) and Economy (371 seats). Since third quarter of 2015, Lufthansa is the only airline in the world that offers consistent products across all long-haul fleets in every travel class. In addition, the powerful FlyNet broadband internet service is also available onboard all long-haul flights.

Lufthansa Group Airlines (Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian Airlines and Eurowings) offer more than three flights a day, 27 flights a week from Thailand to Frankfurt, Vienna, Zurich and Cologne-Bonn.
