Help with Business flights to Vietnam with Thai!

Hi all

I am going to Vietnam soon and never bought a business flight, only went in business with award tickets.

I will be flying Paris- Bangkok- Ho Chi Minh and return Hanoi- Bangkok - Paris.

I can get a business ticlket for this trip for 2.750 Euros on Thai Airways. Do you think it's a good price for Business and is it worth it? How is Thai Airways business? I understood the planes are 747-400.

If I don't go in business I can get the same itinerary on Singapore Airlines for 943 Euros in economy.

Can you please help here?

Thanks in Advance!

On the Thai Airways aircraft I believe they are still using the old style seats, like an enlarged economy seats, on the Paris - Bangkok route. You should check with Thai to verify this as these seats are quite uncomfortable especially for this kind of expense.

If you're not planning on stopping in either Bangkok then I would go with Singapore Airline. If economy is E 943 then you might be able to buy a business class ticket at relatively the same price as Thai's?

Hanuman, yes , you're right. I just saw the seats in that route are the old ones.No wonder the fares are so low compared to other Business classes!!! Not worth the splurge, really! Unfortunately in Singapore A. it is almost 5.000 euros for a Business class seat..Agh!!! Out of my budget! But the seats look awsome! :- )

Just one more question: I saw that Air NewZealand airlines have premium economy for 1.600 euros to Hong Kong.
Do you think it is an option to consider? Then I would have to arrange flights to Ho Chi Minh and out of Hanoi to Hong Kong.
