Arrival in Hong Kong
I was still overwhelmed by the great experience I had flying from Frankfurt to Bangkok and this is just as wonderful as that. The food was excellent and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The flight's delay was not so good and I hope that Thai Airways will be able to perform better next time. Overall, I really had a good time flying with Thai Airways, specially on the Superjumbo 😉
