Thai Airways International (THAI) has took delivery of its first A380 this week. What a great looking aircraft/livery combo. Image from Airbus.
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?

Yesterday, Airbus showed off photos of Thai Airways International’s (THAI) first A380 that is in full livery.
The airline’s first double-decker has also completed interior installation and will now go through its final phase of ground and flight tests in Hamburg, before the aircraft will be believered to THAI sometime during the third quarter of 2012.
THAI will become the ninth operator of the A380 and the airline has firm orders for six A380s.

Airbus also showed off Malaysia Airlines (MAS) first A380, sporting a special “celebration livery.” The A380’s new paint scheme was added post-delivery and highlights the A380 as the flagship for the airline. The plane will start operations on the MAS Kuala Lumpur-London route next week and is configured in three classes with a total of 494 seats.
