The travel news of November are here.
Rosewood Bangkok will be located on prime real estate within Bangkok’s central business district, adjacent to the Ploenchit Skytrain station, to which it will be directly linked.
The 146-room, 33-story property will have two restaurants and bars, a spa, a swimming pool, a fitness center, and meeting facilities. Guestrooms will include 64 square meter Pool Sky villas that feature large terraces and private plunge pools.
From October 27, 2013, the airline’s flights from Bangkok to London arrive at Heathrow’s newest terminal, Terminal 5 (T5). Previously, British Airways flights landed at Heathrow Terminal 3.
As T5 is the world hub of British Airways, passengers are now also able to catch connecting flights to UK travel spots, and many other European and U.S. East Coast destinations, from a single terminal.
The service is being operated by a Boeing 777 aircraft in three class configurations with Club World, World Traveller Plus, and World Traveller.
The OnAir solution, comprising both Internet OnAir and Mobile OnAir, will be installed by Associated Air Center. The owner and the plane’s passengers and crew, will have access to the full range of connectivity options, including email, calls, text messages, and the Internet. As a result, passengers will be able to use their own personal electronic devices in exactly the same way as they do on the ground.
In the second phase of cooperation, Etihad Airways will place its EY code on Korean Air services from Seoul Incheon to Honolulu, Vancouver and Hong Kong. Korean Air will place its KE code on Etihad Airways’ flights from Abu Dhabi to Johannesburg, Muscat and, subject to government approval, Khartoum.
The new arrangements augment the airlines’ existing codeshare services between Abu Dhabi and Seoul Incheon.
