After the beverage service was finished we were handed Thai branded noise cancelling headphones.
We had what seemed like a very long and very slow take off roll. The A380 was super quiet and we slowly ascended. After about 10 minutes the seat belt sign was turned off and our Stews delivered more Dom, an amuse bouche and the full menus. The amuse was two bite size slices of bread one with cheese and the other topped with beef and veg. Very tasty.

The cheese course followed with a nice selection of fruit and cheese - which of course I paired with a nice port (a very tall pour too).
For dessert I had the pineapple cake, which was a bit dry. I'm not a really big dessert person, unless it is chocolate of course.
After meal service (which took about 90 minutes from start to finish), the cabin lights were dimmed and I opted to change in to my Thai pajamas. When I left the lavatory, Popcorn was standing outside the door with clothes hangers. She took my items, hung them up and placed them in my individual closet at my seat. When I made it back to my seat, the crew had already converted my seat into a bed.
The PJs were quite comfortable and fit very well. I ended up using them throughout much of the trip and once winter sets back in in Chicago, I'll probably bring them out again. They're holding up quite well so far.

About 90 minutes out of Bangkok, breakfast was served. We started off with individual pastry baskets and sliced fruit. The pineapple was quite amazing and who doesn't love a big buttery croissant in the morning...

Would I take this flight again? In a heartbeat. The ticket (ORD-FRA-BKK-HAN) cost 70K UAL miles and was worth every one of them. I absolutely loved every aspect of this flight and I cannot wait to try this flight again. The service here also makes me very excited to try the A380 First Class Service on other carriers too (Lufthansa, Air France, British, Emirates, Qantas, etc).
What is the best flight you've ever taken? When going to Southeast Asia, do you choose to go the wrong way around the world just to try a new product or experience fantastic service?
