SkyTeam member Air France and its partner KLM have issued a discounted premium economy class fare to Bangkok, with flights for €808 from Vienna. Sadly, this is a premium economy light fare, that does not include checked bags. If you do not have a SkyTeam Elite or Elite Plus tier, you have to pay over €150 more to select the fare including checked bags. The availability is highest in May and June.
Our availability calendar highlights all possible flight dates at the lowest price for trips up to 28 days. It will forward you to Air France’s booking site with your selected flight dates. The airline sells the cheapest tickets on its website.
All European flights are economy flights. All long-haul trips are operated by Air France-KLM’s Boeing 777 fleet, which features 2-4-2 seating in their premium economy section. While Air France’s seats are perfectly fine for daytime flights, it has been repeatedly noted that it is very hard to get some proper sleep. KLM’s premium economy has better seats, but the risk of being downgraded to economy class is quite high, as only a fraction of their 777s have the new premium economy installed. So, both options have their pros and cons.
By the way, if you prefer to fly with the Star Alliance, in a good premium economy with no risk of being downgraded, there is also this (more expensive) deal from Amsterdam:

Information & Tips for Thailand
Thailand is an increasingly popular holiday destination for Europeans – both beach and party tourists get their money’s worth in the South Asian tropical state.
Whether Bangkok, Koh Samui or Phuket, Thailand offers multi-faceted cities and quiet beaches. Also, the country is always easy to reach from Europe. Especially to Bangkok, there is almost always at least a good deal!
Best Time to Visit
While hot summer temperatures prevail the whole year long in tropical Thailand, the best travel time is definitely the winter from November to February. Thanks to the northwest monsoon it doesn’t get warmer than 33 degrees. In summer the temperatures can quickly reach 40 degrees. The rainy season also starts in June and will last until October – high humidity is what you’ll have to prepare for!
Entry & Visa
Most EU citizens do not need a visa for stays up to a length of 30 days. The entry permit can be extended by another 30 days before expiration by local immigration authorities.
The national currency of Thailand is the Baht (THB) which is divided into Satang. One Euro is about 40 THB.
