I was interested in the possibility of flying EVA Air from LHR to BKK, then onto AKL/SYD via TPE and with the new 332s in service, I thought it might be an option for next year.

However, one thing that concerns me is the lack of any alliance. Is any planned? Do they have an FFP which would be available to Europe resident passengers?

Also, how is their service; I've heard very good reports about their premium economy service, but that's only on 744s. What about ordinary economy, on their 767s and 332s.

Finally, any chance of the new 332s replacing 767s into SYD?

Ordinary economy on 767s is mediocre at the best.. no PTV.. from memory, seat pitch ain't great either.

however Y in the A332 is good, new seats and has PTVs in every seat.

Their deluxe class product has the best value for money for flights opb their B744s because their Y class products is nothing great and their current C class product (Super Business) is pretty dated and needs improvement badly. Their first class is not bad though. The new Premium Laurel class however is much improved and is a very good product.

You may very well see the A330-200s on the SYD route next year. Two B767-300ERs are expected to leave EVA in April and May 2005.

I don't think any alliances are planned for EVA. In a recent interview, they said they were happy with codesharing and at this point, did not want to join a global alliance. The Evergreen Club (EVA's FFP) is available for passengers of all countries.

I have never flown in Economy on their B767s or their A332s. I would definitely say the A332 product is miles ahead of the B767 product. Airbus Lover is correct. There are no PTVs on the 767s, and the seat pitch is a meager 31"/32". The seat pitch on 747s and A332s are 33"~34".

I just received notice that the new A330-200 to be delievered in November will help introduce the A330 to Sydney. So, we'll definitely see EVA's A330 fly to SYD in year-end.
