We were met at the gate by a Thai Airways agent, bearing a sign with our names on it. We did not get a buggy this time, instead we were walked to the lounge. Kamara had really been looking forward to a buggy ride through the airport but I assured her there was a good chance we’d get the buggy from the lounge to the plane.
As soon as we sat down a server appeared offering us an iPad menu, this contained numerous pages of Western and Thai food options
I ordered grilled pork with chilli sauce and sticky rice. This was washed down with a perfect macchiato and a glass of what tasted like Moet.
This was absolutely fantastic. Simple but oh so effective.
After my light brunch I made my way to the Spa, where I had booked myself in for a complimentary 1hr massage. I was offered a ginger and lemongrass tea as well as a thick, hot towel; I was then given a health waiver to sign. You know, in case the massage was so intense that I suffered an attack of some sort.
The private spa treatment room came with a separate changing room. This featured L’Occitane amenities.
The massage was much better this time than on my last visit to the lounge. Last time I was literally shivering from how cold the aircon was and nothing could be done to fix it. This time I got a perfectly decent massage and left relaxed and ready for my flight.
After the massage I headed back to the Lounge to meet Kamara and get our things ready for the flight home in First on the newly refurbished 747.
Of course, I couldn’t resist having another macchiato and another glass of champagne.
