Gulf carrier Oman Air offers a bevy of Business Class destinations from Athens, highlighted by Bangkok and Manila for just more than €1,300. While other flights are available, those destinations feature a single Boeing 737 on both segments. Sadly, this premium cabin is nor as good or comfortable as Oman Air’s excellent long haul Business Class. Royal Jordanien offers Business Class seats to Bangkok slightly cheaper.
Further destinations without long haul Business Class include:
Flights from Athens to Muscat are scheduled to Boeing 737 services. The same plane would take you onwards to Kathmandu, Hyderabad, Goa and Zanzibar. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to enjoy Oman Air’s long haul cabin on any flight. Only services to Bangkok (Boeing 787) and Manila (Airbus A330) are operated by long haul aircraft.
