Commencing October 28, 2023, Lufthansa returns the flagship Airbus A380 to Bangkok, increasing capacity on the direct connection between the Thai capital and Munich, the capital of Bavaria. 

Lufthansa is set to reintroduce the iconic A380 on its Bangkok to Munich route. This decision comes in the wake of the rising demand for air travel on the sector.

Resurgence of the A380

The Airbus A380, often referred to as the “queen of the skies,” is a double-deck, wide-body, four-engine jet renowned for its sheer size and opulence.

Lufthansa’s decision to return the A380 to the Bangkok-Munich route will no doubt come as a welcome move by the travelling public and aviation enthusiasts alike.

The A380 boasts an impressive configuration that caters to travelers across various classes. With 8 First Class seats, 78 Business Class seats, 52 Premium Economy seats, and a whopping 371 seats in Economy Class, it offers options that suit every passenger’s preferences and needs.


This diversity in seating arrangements ensures that every traveler, regardless of their budget, can enjoy the comfort and luxury associated with the A380.

Bringing First Class to Thailand

One of the most exciting aspects of this reintroduction is the inclusion of Lufthansa’s esteemed First Class cabin and service on flights to Thailand.

This means that passengers flying the Bangkok-Munich route can indulge in the ultimate luxury and exclusivity that First Class offers.

From fine dining to spacious cabins, the A380’s First Class experience is bound to leave a lasting impression on passengers.

Lufthansa’s Long-Standing Legacy

Lufthansa’s connection with Thailand dates back more than six decades, fostering strong ties between the two regions. This legacy of trust and reliability makes it fitting for Bangkok to be the first destination in the Asia Pacific region to welcome the A380 back into its airspace.

According to Anlee Do, General Manager for Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines & the Mekong region at Lufthansa Group, the decision to reintroduce the A380 on the Bangkok-Munich route is a response to the robust demand for air travel between Thailand and Germany.

Lufthansa Group’s commitment to the Thai market is evident in their unique position as the only airline group operating the A380 non-stop between Thailand and Europe.


With the reintroduction of the A380, Lufthansa is taking a giant leap towards enhancing the connectivity between Thailand and Europe. LH773, the flight code for the Bangkok-Munich route, will significantly boost the weekly flight capacity.

With the support of other Lufthansa Group carriers like Swiss International Air Lines and Austrian Airlines, passengers can now access a remarkable 21 weekly flights, offering direct connections to major European cities, including Zurich, Vienna, and Munich.
