TG flies the A380 to Paris and FRA as well.
Beat me to it.
I want you to know that I thought the most important part of your TR was the point where u said that every yid leaves an impression and the future guests all get treated as u treated the staff....so true! I have had such good experiences with staff in some crazy country's and others not as much! Btw chapp your wedding was beautiful! Happy I was a able to be a part!
Beat me again. Ah!

Sounds like it was a heck of a trip. Well, aside from TG 747 (old version)  :)

Your marriage should continue to feel like it did on this honeymoon.

 40 foot pool???? Did you get the Royal oceanfront or one of the residences? Bc the typical pool isn't nearly 40 linear nor is it 40 square feet (though it's close)

Beat me to it. Beat me again. Ah!

Well it seems Chap is right, as they discontinued flying the A380 on both those routes.

@Chap
Very nice trip report and Mazel Tov!!!

Curious: Why did you use frozen pom meals in Thailand when you can have fresh hot Chabad? Am I missing something?

Regarding the Elephants, When we were in CNX, we went to a place that treats the elephants nicely and teaches you how to take care of them. They don't tie them up and don't put saddles on them when you ride. It's a nicer feel to know the animals are treated nicely.

Shame. I took the A380 from BKK-CDG just a few months ago and it was the best I've slept on any flight. It did look like the plane was half empty so that may have something to do with it being discontinued.

Its 40 feet. The 2 bedroom suite is like 46 feet but we declined that upgrade, it was just too big.

We didnt take pom to koh samui, we bought from Chabad. Breakfast was from the Conrad (from chabad too)
