- Pro: Reserved area for first class passengers.
- Con: The food does an okay job. Less spacious than the ANA lounge.
ast November, I redeemed 67,500 miles for a first class award flying from Frankfurt to Osaka via Bangkok in Thai Airways First Class. The taxes was just about 800 SEK which was very reasonable. On the flight back from Hong Kong to Stockholm, I redeemed (I actually borrowed miles from Mike) 45,000 miles to fly Turkish Airlines in Business Class. I’ve been to both Osaka and Hong Kong a few times in the past so my plan was not really to explore them but rather to just see a few sights during this period. I have to admit, to be able to fly on one of my favorite airlines in first class (thanks to their Rimowa amenity kit and excellent first class lounge in Bangkok among others) and visit two amazing cities is just awesome 😉
Entrance – Thai Royal Orchid Lounge
First Class Private Room – Thai Royal Orchid Lounge
Having a first class boarding pass, I was able to access the private room reserved for THAI first class passengers. The best thing about this reserved area was the privacy and that you get to seat on those leather chairs with great views.
Seating – Thai Royal Orchid Lounge
Dining – Thai Royal Orchid Lounge
For your drinks order, you get to be served by a staff but other than that, I had to get something from the buffet myself as there were only snacks available on the trolley.
The business class lounge which was not really that big in size was crowded during my visit apparently because the Boeing 747 was full, plus those with Star Alliance gold status also have access to the business lounge.
I thought the food and drinks offering were not that extensive specially if you compare it to their own lounges in Bangkok. I have to say their yogurt was one of the best I’ve had though 😋
Entertainment – Thai Royal Orchid Lounge
There are also several TV screens and wifi is complimentary.
Amenities – Thai Royal Orchid Lounge
Overall, Thai Royal Orchid Lounge is a nice lounge with friendly staff where you can have a decent meal and relax a bit before your flight although I would suggest visiting the ANA Lounge if your flight departs near gate 15 since the lounge is larger and the food selection slightly better (understandably) because Osaka Kansai Airport is one of ANA’s four hubs.
