The three Star Alliance carriers Lufthansa, Swiss and Austrian Airlines are selling reasonably priced tickets for Business Class flights from Stockholm to Bangkok. You can get a round-trip from Sweden to Thailand starting at SEK 15,335/€1,438.
The first flight segment will take you from Stockholm to one of the carriers’ hubs. Consequently, you’ll have a layover either in Frankfurt, Zurich or in Vienna. If one of those locations is easier for you to reach and you’re thinking about skipping a flight, have a look at this article to see what kind of problems this might involve:
Business Class products
All three carriers offer an up-to-date Business Class on board their aircraft. Lie-flat seats are standard, and according to most reviews also the service and the catering are above average. But there are differences:
Swiss and Austrian will mostly operate a Boeing 777 on long-haul segments. Both airlines have a similar layout in Business Class, offering a certain number of single seats. Lufthansa, on the other hand, will most likely fly you to Bangkok on board of an Airbus A340. Here, as in all other planes, Lufthansa went for a 2-2-2 configuration. It won’t come as a surprise that those don’t offer you the same degree of privacy as the ‘throne’ seats on Swiss or Austrian flights — something you might want to consider when traveling alone.
