But this would have to be via LHR? I could imagine that F BKK-LHR-SIN would be $10k, and probably not a very popular routing.
I don't think the F lounges inspiring beyond SYD.
i hear BKK gets a good rap, but would like to hear more.
I do expect good things from the Thai F Lounge at Bkk. Like a out of this world Thai massage.
The TG BKK F lounge isn't that impressive as a lounge per se, but the entire process is probably as good as you can get. Firstly, you get a separate F check in, a personal assistant to help you through the exclusive customs and security checkpoint adjacent to the check-in area, then you get a buggy ride to the F Lounge. As a F pax and depending how long you have, you can immediately ask to book in for a 1.5hr massage full body thai oil massage or a quick 30 minute head,shoulder and feet massage if you are short on time. The Royal Orchard Spa is opposite the F Lounge so its a dedicated spa area. Yes I opted for the 1.5hr oil massage and it was divine just before a flight.
The F Lounge you'll likely get a semi-private room where it opens to the main areas, the alcohol choices were Ok, the food choices were a-la carte as well (which will be delivered to your room, unless you want to dine in the restaurant).
No announcements are made in the lounge for boarding, however your assistant will come and find you when your plane is ready for boarding. You may or may not get a buggy to the boarding gate, so expect to walk the final few hundred metres to your plane.
Regardless, do enjoy! I'm envious!
I go get my food to take away on the 4th floor in BKK...
Gotta admit the food in the J or F QF/BA Lounge in Bkk is not what your would write home about. Reds are also very ordinary. Only thing that makes the Bkk QF/BA FLounge work for me is the Smoked Salmon. I also ask for the Wolf Blass black label Shiraz as the Rosemount is not, IMHO, a F Lounge red wine. They only seem to put out the Wolfie if you ask for it. Once it is gone, they do not replace it with another Wolfie but normally with another Rosemount.
Thanks for the tips
Flying BA SYD-BKK, QF BKK-LHR in a few weeks. Will be looking for a few glasses of decent red prior to the second leg.
Also: does anyone know what the quality/ queues are like for the QF/BA showers in BKK?
I usually go via SIN or HKG and cannot remember the last time I was in BKK( except for the hideous smoking lounges I walked past en-route to Lounge)
Nice.. should be a great experience.
I am doing a F run of my own, mel-hkg-ord//ewr-zrh-del-bkk-syd in QF F, CX F (really looking forward to this), UA F, LX new F, TG regional F, TG F.
Is this contagious??
Enjoy the experience - look forward to the TR. In a few months I will be checking out F with MH via KUL to LHR so it will provide a good comparison.
For sure. Will be interested in learning about your MH trip as well.
Seems AJ has caused a few of us to taste what others have to offer.
