Qantas operates the popular "Golden Triangle" service connecting Bangkok, Hong Kong and Singapore: this makes round-Asia trips easy with a single carrier with no "doubling back".
On B747-400 aircraft, First Class passengers can relax in a full length First Class sleeper seat. Or, if travelling with a companion they may choose to share a quiet space in one of our three pairs of side by side sleeper seats.
