Trip Report Thai Business Class BKK-NRT; ANA Business Class NRT-SEA

Jump to last reply

We flew on aThai Air Airbus 380 from Bangkok to Narita. Seats are very comfortable and the seats are lie-flat. Since the seating was 1-2-1 in Business class, everyone has immediate access to an aisle. Better yet, the center two seats alternated between the two seats being together (for couples traveling together) and being separated by a partition. I found the plane and the seats to be very comfortable. The food was the best I've eaten on a plane in well over a decade. The service was excellent, the flight attendants very gracious.

From Narita to Seattle we were on an ANA Boeing 787. We really disliked the seating. For one thing, all of the seats were isolated from each other, so there was no where we could sit and actually talk with each other. The assumption seems to be that everyone in business class is flying solo (or flying with a co-worker they would like to avoid) so that was annoying. But also, the seats were pretty uncomfortable for both of us. While they are lie-flat, sitting upright or inclined my back hurt no matter how I adjusted the seat. Food was mediocre, at best. Service was ok, but the English language skills of the ANA flight attendants was no where nearly as good as that of the Thai attendants. I had heard such good reports on ANA, we were really looking forward to this flight.
