Earlier in the week, Thai Airways International (THAI) took delivery of their first Airbus A380. The aircraft is configured to have 12 private suites in First Class, 60 in Royal Silk Class (aka Business) and 435 in Economy.

Thai plans to put their first of six A380’s into service in October on their Bangkok to Hong Kong and Bangkok to Singapore routes.

There are nine airlines that currently operate the A380 and I think this livery is the best of them.

Some liveries just do not translate well from a single decker aircraft to a huge double decker — the canvas is so much larger. I have always liked Thai’s livery and I feel that it works quite well on the A380. What do you think?
