Star Alliance member Egyptair sells some deliciously low priced business class tickets from Paris to Bangkok, going as low es €1,112 for a roundtrip. The fare includes a layover in Cairo, but the opportunity to enjoy long haul class business class products on all flight segments. A good amount of award miles can be earned as well.
Please be careful with your flight selection: Only flights leaving Paris on 14:50 feature Egyptair’s Boeing 787-9 and therefore a proper premium cabin. Flights departing later are operated by Boeing 737 aircraft. An Airbus A330 hosts you on all trips between Cairo and Bangkok.
