    Hey guys I'm looking to fly thai air from bkk --> fra in first class on the a380. What's the best way to do this? Anyone have any information on when and how these seats are released? Thanks!

    TG releases their space pretty far out in advance. I've seen TG F available on FRA to BKK or vice versa for the summer and the fall too.

    I have seen plenty of A380 F availability to/from Paris but less to/from Frankfurt. Maybe that would be an option?

    These days it has become very rare for Airlines to release more than one premium cabin seat at the same time.... especially first class cabins.

    I have booked 3 seats in F from BKK to MUC few weeks ago, not on A380 but on 747 though.

    It appears to be easy getting TG F award seats on the A380s ex-CDG and FRA. However, I can't find a single F award seat ex-NRT in October or November next year, just economy and business.

    TG doesn't offer true F service on NRT-BKK so they maybe withholding it preparation of removing it.

    Sent from a reasonably priced car.

    Getting the 346 on this route is pretty easy. Getting the 380 is harder, but possible. I see one seat available on the A380 BKK-FRA for at least 50 dates in the coming year, though much of it is July or later.
    For the A380 those dates are no good but there are seats on these:
    5/19/2014 23:45
    5/21/2014 23:45
    5/25/2014 23:45

    That could be the reason. I find it hard to believe with two flights a day TG would get many F bookings. However, unless it designates a pair of A380s to solely serve this high density route, it is quite unlikely the F cabin would be removed. Either it would fly empty or be filled with elites booked into J, with J service. Many airlines do this when they fly international F cabins on routes where F doesn't sell well, particularly on intra-regional routes.
