Just a year before Covid and bankruptcy proceedings hit the Thai legacy carrier they introduced flights to and from Vienna / Bangkok. The flights were executed with brand new Airbus A350 aircrafts. Here are a few photos from one of my flights. I enjoyed it a lot. The economy cabin was not very crowded and service as friendly as it gets. It is probably because of the new aircraft and the shorter flight time compared to their Frankfurt and Paris routes.
Thai Airways has cancelled their route to Vienna and let go of their local staff. While I love flying Thai Airways their management doesn’t make much sense. Let’s hope they will bring back the Vienna route at a later date. In the meantime the route is exclusive to Austrian Airlines.
