Yes it was CAL20 KIX-JFK reg. B-18211. It diverted about 3pm. The crew timed out and the flight had to clear Customs & Immigration in BOS. A crew was flown up from JFK and the flight continued to JFK at 9:45pm. Very very long flight for those passengers.

AIRLINERS.NET CREW PHOTO SCREENER
Quoting anonms (Reply 3): So I guess this means the retrofit for the older 747s didn't make it in time for this route's launch, eh? I thought it was strange that their release said they used a 747 with 61 business class seats.

None of the business class seats will be lie-flat or angled lie-flat on China Airlines.
Angled lie-flat refers to seats like EVA Air's Premium Laurel, where it does lie-flat but is angled, so it's not horizontal but instead higher on the head and lower on the feet, which is why passengers often slip when they sleep on it. FAs on EVA Air now already know to put extra pillow there for passengers who slide down.
China Airlines' 333, 343 and 744 or the soon refurbished Dynasty seats are angled seats that reclines from 130 degrees to 166 degrees. It "reclines" into sleeping position but it does not lie-flat. Their First Class seats are the ones that truly lie-flat, whether it's the 744 or 74C.
