We arrived at Munich’s Franz Josef Strauss International Airport over three hours before our flight since we were just ready to relax a little bit before the flight. There was already a queue formed when we arrived, but we were the first guests in line for Royal First Class. On this flight was myself and two friends — one of who would be accompanying me in First Class, and the other who was holding down the fort in economy. Once check-in opened, we were processed first and headed through security and immigration before heading to the Lufthansa Senator Lounge. Unfortunately, Thai First Class passengers are not granted access at Lufthansa’s First Class Lounges, so the Senator Lounge had to do. It, of course, was fine — as we primarily just used the space to relax with a light meal and a few drinks before our flight to Bangkok.
About 45 minutes prior to departure, we made the short walk to our gate and took a couple pictures of our B747-400 in the unique THAI livery. As we were called for boarding, we entered the plane at door 1L and was greeted by the Purser.
