I came across this picture of China Airlines in San Jose, Costa Rica. I checked CAL's schedules but they do not have any scheduled flights. Does anyone have any idea what it was doing there?

Could be an official visit...Costa Rica still recognizes Taiwan as the legitimate government of China.

President Chen traveled to Costa Rica and Paraguay in May for official state visits. On the return the Taiwan President made a surprise visit to Libya after he turned down the offer of the US government to make a refueling stop in Alaska. Apparently the US government turned down Chen request for stops in both San Francisco and New York. Quote from the AP "Chen said no the Alaska stop, considering it a sleight to Taiwan's dignity.""
