Review: Miracle Lounge D4 BKK

My flight to Tokyo was at 6:50 AM. I arrived at the airport at 4 AM and quickly made my way to the lounge. ANA doesn’t have their own lounge in Bangkok (which seems odd), but they contract with Star Alliance partners THAI and EVA Airways. In addition to the Star Alliance partners, you can also visit the Miracle Lounge (which is also a Priority Pass lounge). Outside of what ANA is offering, Star Alliance Gold members can access any Star Alliance lounge. There is a fantastic Singapore Airlines Silver Kris Lounge in concourse D. However, they don’t open until 6:30 AM. Continue reading “Review: Miracle Lounge D4 BKK”

Review: TG BKK-TPE Business

Date: Thursday October 12
Flight: 636
Aircraft: A330-300
Origin: BKK
Destination: TPE
Seat: 14B Business
Scheduled Push Back: 5:40 PM
Actual Push Back: 6:10 PM

I’ve never flown Thai business on an international route so I was pretty excited. I lowered my expectations a bit as this is a intra-Asia flight and doesn’t even have fully flat seats.

Review: EVA Air Lounge BKK

Hoping from lounge to lounge, next on my journey was EVA Air. This lounge was remodeled in recent years and really looks nice! While the Singapore Airlines lounge looks chic (albeit small) the EVA Air lounge looks swanky (if that makes sense). The place reminds me of a jazz club meets 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Review: SQ SilverKris Lounge BKK

I wanted to check out a some of the Star Alliance options in BKK other than Thai. I headed over to the Singapore Airlines lounge. The lounge is visually impressive but was crowded when I arrived (especially compared to the huge Thai Airways lounge I just left).

Review: TG Royal Orchid Spa BKK

This is one of the most unique ground services out there. Thai Airways provides spa services to Royal First (First) and Royal Silk (Business) class customers. This is provided only to First and Business class customers flying on Thai Airways metal and is not extended to partner First and Business or Star Alliance Gold.

Review: TG CNX-BKK Business

Date: Thursday October 12
Flight: 103
Aircraft: 777-300
Origin: CNX
Destination: BKK
Seat: 14B Business
Scheduled Push Back: 10:05 AM
Actual Push Back: 10:16 AM

I booked this one way CNX-BKK-TPE flight in business class using United miles which cost 40K. Come November 1 2017 the cost of these awards will be increased slightly. I saw there was a lounge at CNX but after clearing security I was told the lounge was before security and didn’t want to go back out. Boarding was scheduled to start at 9:45 AM. Like most Thai flights this is when they want you at the gate not when boarding will actually begin.
