|Sometimes we do certain things that make us all happy. We all have that one vice. Mine happens to be travel & flying. Living in the USA there are not may opportunities to fly widebody aircraft domestically, and most of the time I end up on Airbus A330-2/300 aircraft heading off to Europe.
Knowing that Thai Airways uses a lot of widebody aircraft on their domestic routes, I decided to take a quick run up to Chiang Mai during my last couple of days in Southeast Asia in November. Just for a day.. Just to fly a Boeing 747-400 and Airbus A330-300, in Thai colors. ...
As an added bonus, while searching originally for Economy class tickets, I changed the dropdown to Business class just for fun and the price came up about $57 more than the Economy class ticket, so I jumped at the chance to fly Thai Airways Royal Silk Class. Even though only a short domestic hop, it will still be well worth the efforts.
Let's hope they don't change the B747 flight, that's the one that I'm most looking forward too.
